BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Teachers from four states are invited to tour North Dakota coal country.

The Lignite Energy Council says elementary and secondary teachers from the Dakotas, Minnesota and Montana may attend seminar this summer on how the coal known as lignite is mined and used to produce energy in the four-state region.

The seminar slated for June 13-16 includes a tour of a mine, power plant and the Great Plains Synfuels Plant near Beulah.

The Lignite Energy Council says it has been offering the seminar since 1986. Teachers can get graduate credits.

Teachers must apply before April 15. The online application is available at https://www.lignite.com/teachers .
