Unfortunately, the COVID-19 crisis has forced the cancellation of both events. However, the local students will still have the opportunity to connect with new friends and learn this summer. The Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina will hold a Virtual Youth Experience for students selected by their local cooperative. The multi-day event, which occurred over a web-conferencing platform, was planned for June 22-26.
