Application Deadline: March 31, 2016
North Carolina’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives are providing deserving students from across the state the opportunity to attend two basketball camps. The scholarships are being offered to rising 6-8th grade females to attend the NC State Wolfpack Girls Basketball Camp at N.C. State University and to rising 6-8th grade males to attend the Roy Williams Basketball Camp at UNC-Chapel Hill. North Carolina’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives will send more than 50 students to the camps this year. Four students will be selected to participate from the Tideland EMC service area: two boys and two girls.
The head coaches of each team will use the help of their staff and current players to conduct the camps. Both camps will work closely with each camper to develop skills that will benefit the young athletes both on and off the court.
Applications for both camps will be accepted through March 31, 2015.. The winners of the scholarships will be announced no later than May 1, 2015.
Winners of the Touchstone Energy Wolfpack Girls Basketball Camp Scholarship will attend the overnight camp in Raleigh, June 14-17, while winners of the Touchstone Energy Roy Williams Basketball Camp Scholarship will attend the overnight camp in Chapel Hill, June 20-24. Campers must have permission from a parent or guardian to attend the camp and must provide their own transportation to and from the camp.
Applicants will be judged on their academics, extra-curricular activities and an essay and short answer question that must be submitted with the application.
