North Platte, Pleasanton teens selected to attend energy campTell North Platte what you think

The Dawson Public Power District has selected three teens from North Platte and one from Pleasanton to represent the district at the Nebraska Rural Electric Association’s Youth Energy Camp.

The camp will be July 14-18 at the Nebraska 4-H Camp in Halsey. It provides opportunities for teens to explore and learn more about the electric utility industry. About 60 campers from Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota and Colorado attend each year, spokeswoman Chelsey Gengenbach said.

The camp participants will tour the Gerald Gentleman Power Station and the Kingsley Hydroelectric Power Plant, attend workshops and presentations by experts and see a high voltage trailer demonstration, along with recreational activities.

The teens selected:

North Platte

Eleanor Aufdenkamp, daughter of Brent and Brenda Aufdenkamp.

Megan Johnson, daughter of Kevin and Michele Johnson.

Turner Nansel, son of Kirk and Tyann Nansel.


Clayton Darby, son of Jim and Heidi Darby.

DPPD serves south central Nebraska along the Platte River Valley. Organized in 1937, Dawson Public Power District provides service to more than 23,000 electric meters and maintains more than 5,800 miles of power lines. The district’s 5,000 square miles include all of Dawson and Buffalo Counties, approximately two-thirds of Gosper County, a third of Lincoln County and parts of Custer, Sherman and Frontier Counties.
