Kenergy Corp has selected its winners of the 2012 Washington Youth Tour.  Each year, Kenergy and its member-owners provide a weeklong all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for six juniors in high school.  To enter a contest to win the trip, students must live in a house powered by the co-op and write a 1,000-word essay on any subject about which they are passionate.  A panel of judges, made up of Kenergy members and staff, choose the winners.
