Your cooperative and the other North Carolina Touchstone Energy Cooperatives are, again this year, offering middle school students the chance to win a full scholarship to summer basketball camp. Young men can apply to attend the June 21-25 Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and young ladies can apply to attend the June 23-26 Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at N.C. State University in Raleigh.

Jones-Onslow will award scholarships to one boy and one girl this year. At the overnight camps, coaches and college student-athletes will work directly with campers to develop fundamental skills that will help the youth excel both on and off the court.

Applications and more information have been sent to area middle schools. Students who will be in the sixth, seventh, or eighth grade during the 2014-2015 school year can apply. The winning applicants will be selected from an essay contest. All applications are due back to Jones-Onslow by March 31, 2014.

For more information, call (910) 353-1940 or (800) 682-1515 and speak with Paula Redick or visit the cooperative website. To download the basketball scholarship application, go to “The Cooperative” menu item, “Community” tab, and then “Sports Camps”.
