Middle school players can get scholarships to basketball camp
Kids from across the state will travel to the Triangle this summer to participate in basketball camps on college campuses, thanks to Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships.
Each North Carolina Touchstone Energy co-op will select two outstanding students from their local area, one boy and one girl, who will win the chance not only to brush up their basketball skills, but also to practice teamwork and get a glimpse of life as a college student.
The all-expense paid scholarships send young men to soak up lessons from Roy Williams and his Tar Heel team in Chapel Hill, and young women will work with the Wolfpack women's team and head coach Wes Moore at NC State in Raleigh.
Scholarships are available now for middle school students. and applications must be submitted by March 31. More than 50 youth will win scholarships in 2014, which marks the 11th consecutive year the co-ops have offered the opportunity.
