For The Love of the Game

Here in North Carolina, we're proud of our "B's"—barbeque and basketball. That's why it's an honor to send two lucky athletes to top-tier basketball camps, year after year.

Sharing the love of basketball with children in our communities through the Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarship Program is more than tradition; it’s an opportunity to impart the value of teamwork and cooperation in an enriching environment.

This year’s winners were selected by a panel of judges based on an application that included the students’ academic achievements, extracurricular activities, an essay and a short-answer question. After careful review and exciting camps in Raleigh and Chapel Hill, it is our pleasure to introduce you to our MVPs, the 2018 scholarship recipients.

The all-expense paid scholarships, sponsored by North Carolina’s 26 Touchstone Energy cooperatives, provide funding for more than 50 middle school students from across North Carolina to attend basketball camp.
