Students: Apply Now for Sports Camp Scholarship

Boy holding a basketballTime is ticking for rising sixth and seventh graders to apply for full scholarships to attend basketball camps held at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and NC State University this summer.

Tri-County EMC will provide one young lady with a scholarship to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp June 18 to June 22 in Raleigh, and one young man the opportunity to attend the Carolina Basketball School June 17 to June 21 in Chapel Hill.

The scholarships cover all expenses at the overnight camps, which provide a glimpse into life on a college campus. Campers stay overnight in college dorms, learn fundamental skills that will help them excel on and off the court, and receive individual and group instruction from Division 1 coaches to enhance their basketball and team working abilities.

To learn more and apply, visit the North Carolina Electric Cooperatives website, or contact Deidra Grantham at (919) 735-2611. Applications must be submitted or postmarked by March 31.
