Apply for Touchstone Energy summer basketball camps by March 30

North Carolina's Touchstone Energy cooperatives are awarding middle-school students full scholarships to attend basketball camp on college campuses this summer. Young men can apply to attend the Roy Williams Basketball Camp June 15–19 at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and young women can apply to attend the Kellie Harper Basketball Academy Aug. 1–4 at N.C. State University in Raleigh. Campers will stay in dorms and work directly with the coaches and current and former players at the overnight camps. Students must be in sixth, seventh or eighth grade for the 2013–2014 school year to be eligible to apply, and applications must be postmarked by March 30. Statewide, more than 50 students will receive Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarships this year.
