ӲƵAPP Selects Codi Mueller of Robinson and Grete Olsen of Horton to Attend the FRS Youth Tour in Washington D.C.

ӲƵAPP offers students in Northeast Kansas with a once-in-a-lifetime experience by attending the Foundation for Rural Service Youth Tour. The students selected to attend the youth tour will get a first-hand look at the rural telecommunications industry, learn about the legislative and governmental process, and get the rare opportunity to visit our nation’s Capital. The Foundation for Rural Service limits the tour to 100 students, so the selected students will have the opportunity to meet other students from across rural America.
