WADESBORO — The deadline is quickly approaching for rising sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders to apply for a scholarship from Pee Dee Electric to attend basketball camp this summer.


Each year, Pee Dee awards two Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships: one for a young man to attend the Roy Williams Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill; and one for a young woman to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at N.C. State University in Raleigh. Applications must be postmarked by Sunday, March 31.

At the camps, students stay overnight in campus dorms, learn fundamental basketball and life skills, and receive individual and group instruction from Division 1 coaches. Wes Moore, coach of the Wolfpack women’s basketball team, and Roy Williams, coach of the Carolina Tar Heels men’s basketball team, will direct the camps with the help of staff, as well as current and former players. 

To be eligible to win, students must be in the sixth, seventh or eighth grade during the 2019-2020 school year. Applicants must have permission from a parent or guardian to attend the overnight camp and must provide their own transportation to and from the camp if selected to attend. 

Applications and more information can be found at ncelectriccooperatives.com/sports-camps or by contacting Seth Allen at 704-694-7604. Applicants will be judged on academics, extracurricular activities and a required essay. Winners are expected to be announced by May 1.
