Dawson Public Power District recently sponsored three local students to attend the Nebraska Rural Electric Association Youth Energy Leadership Camp.

The students were:

  • Braeden Anderson, Gothenburg. Son of Brock and Stacy Anderson of Gothenburg.
  • Ava Brodine, Elm Creek. Daughter of Cole and Suzanne Brodine of Elm Creek.
  • Austin Smith, Kearney. Son of Todd and Jody Smith of Kearney.

The camp’s purpose is to teach students about the electric utility industry and public power in Nebraska, and build their leadership skills.

Approximately 46 students from around the state gathered at the Nebraska State 4-H Camp in Halsey. The group participated in interesting workshops, fascinating demonstrations and presentations by regional experts. Tours of the Gerald Gentleman Power Station and the Kingsley Hydro-Electric Power Plant provided a first-hand look at the process of generating electricity.
