Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships
North Carolina’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives are partnering with North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to offer educational and athletic opportunities for rising sixth through eighth graders this summer.
Middle-school students statewide are encouraged to apply for one of 50 all-expense paid scholarships to attend basketball camp: boys may apply for the Roy Williams camp at UNC-Chapel Hill and girls may apply for the Wes Moore Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at N.C. State University. Pitt & Greene EMC will award scholarships to two local students, one for each camp.
Applications for both camps will be accepted from January through March. Applicants will be judged on their academic records, extra-curricular activities and an essay that must be submitted with the application. Judges’ results are expected to be announced to all applicants by May 1. Campers must have permission from a parent or guardian to attend camp and must provide their own transportation to and from the camp.
Eligible students who are interested in the scholarship should contact Lindsey Listrom with NCEMC (North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation) at 1-800-662-8835, extension 3214. Students can download applications here.
The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for our state’s youth. The scholarships reflect Touchstone Energy’s core values of accountability, integrity, innovation and commitment to community.
