Hello High School Teachers, Envirothon Advisors, Environmental, FFA and Key Club Leaders, Guidance Counselors, and Scout Leaders across Wake County!
It’s time for teens to apply for summer camp!
Rising seniors, juniors and sophomores are encouraged to apply for a full $475 scholarship to attend the 2015 Resource Conservation Workshop June 21-26 at NCSU!
High school students representing 100 counties across NC spend a week outdoors with professionals in several natural resources fields.
Students also have an opportunity to win college scholarships and/or cash awards on the culminating exam.
Last year Wake District sent four (4) Wake County students with one earning a high score on the exam, and another highly recommended for the Grady Lane College Scholarship.
A video can be seen at this web link: http://www.ncagr.gov/SWC/educational/RCW.html
Deadline is Friday, March 6, 2015.
To apply, students complete the attached sign up form with 250 words explaining their interest in natural resources conservation, why they’re the best candidate, plus 1 letter of reference from an adult (teacher, youth or church leader, or other adult besides parent.)
Application is sent to my attention
by email (sbjones),
or FAX (919-250-1058),
or by snail mail: Wake SWCD, 4001-D Carya Drive, Raleigh,NC 27610.
Please let young people know about this opportunity. Thank you!
