Youth Programs

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Glacier Electric has partnered with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to offer children’s books in the GEC service territory!  Glacier Electric’s sponsorship allows for children aged 0-5 to receive a book each month FREE of charge when you sign up.

 

We now have a wonderful book program available to your kids aged 0-5!  When you register your child for the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library sponsored by GEC, they will receive a new book in the mail every month from birth to age 5.  The book will be delivered to your home each month as long as you are residents of Glacier Electric Cooperatives service territory, or the child turns 5. 

  • Register online at http://imaginationlibrary.com , or

  • Complete our registration form and mail to Glacier Electric at PO Box 2090, Cut Bank, MT 59427, or

  • Come into either our Cut Bank or Browning offices to complete a registration form in person. 

Approximately 8 to 10 weeks after you complete the registration, your first book will arrive to your child at your home and will continue to do so until they turn 5 or you move out of the GEC service territory.

Please contact Erin Nelson with any questions at 406-873-5566 or enelson@glacierelectric.com.

Washington D.C. Youth Tour Scholarship

Each summer Glacier Electric Cooperative sponsors two students to attend the Electric Cooperative Washington D.C. Youth Tour.

The youth tour is a wonderful opportunity for our young leaders to bring home knowledge and a broader world-view to help improve our own community.

Applications are available each fall in the Glacier Electric offices, on this webpage and at Cut Bank, Browning, and Heart Butte High Schools. GEC encourages all local sophomores and juniors to compete for their chance to enjoy this amazing experience next summer.
