Youth Tour 2024 Winner - Blaine Downing
Blaine Downing, a junior at Saco High School had a winning essay for this year’s Washington Youth Tour contest. The essay title was "If you could have dinner with one prominent Washington, D.C. figure, whether from the present or past, who would that person be and why? What would you ask them?"
Big Flat Electric sponsors a student or students every year for this trip.
