CYCLE brings in some of the brightest young leaders from across Missouri. The focus is to show students more about electric cooperatives, teach leadership skills and experience Missouri state government. The program includes nationally known speakers and a day at the state Capitol. There is also time for some fun things like an outdoor barbeque and a hypnosis. The group is also divided up into smaller teams that compete in various events like the “build a cooperative” game.
2018 winners Isaac Young, Hickman; Benjamin McKane, Southern Boone; Zane Stone, Centralia; Addison Inlow, Southern Boone; Grace Cunningham, Rock Bridge and Brooklyn Marrs, Southern Boone.
