Hello High School Science Chairs, Envirothon Advisors, Environmental and Key Club Leaders, and FFA / Horticulture Teachers!
It’s only February but students are already looking for fun & meaningful summer camp opportunities!
Please tell them about the 2014 Resource Conservation Workshop (RCW) June 22-27, 2014 at NCSU.
Budget and camp enrollment space allowing, Wake District offers one or more full scholarships for Wake County high school students to attend this week-long seminar taught by NCSU professors and natural resource professionals.
Last summer our District Supervisors awarded four (4) scholarships and a fifth student paid her own way.
Eligible students must be rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors. They must submit an application that includes a short essay explaining their keen interest in the great outdoors & natural resource conservation, what they hope to learn, their career plans or how they plan to apply conservation in their life, and why s/he is the best candidate of choice.
Students must also submit one letter of support from an adult (teacher, church pastor, scout leader, etc. but not a parent.)
DEADLINE: Postmark / submit application by 5:00pm Friday, March 28, 2014.
Thank you for assisting Wake District in sending deserving students to this comprehensive and worthwhile summer conservation camp!
