For more than 35 years, Cobb EMC’s Women’s Task Force, a volunteer group of 90 women members from the cooperative’s service district, has been quilting to raise money for scholarships.

The group spent the past week in a Cobb EMC conference room, sewing away to finalize this year’s masterpiece that will be raffled off during the cooperative’s annual meeting in September.

The Washington Youth Tour scholarships that are funded by the task force are awarded annually to high school juniors. In addition to a scholarship, winning students receive a weeklong trip, valued at $2,650 per student, to learn about leadership and government.
