High school sophomores and juniors compete annually to represent Walton EMC on the Washington Youth Tour. Eight finalists were interviewed to determine four winners and two alternates.

Those selected participate in leadership training that includes personal development and team building sessions, meetings with state and national leaders and visits to major sights of our nation’s capital.

Because the 2020 Youth Tour has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, winners were given the option of participating in next year’s tour or receiving a college scholarship.
