The Davie Soil and Water Conservation District will sponsor a student from Davie County to attend the Resource Conservation Workshop June 21-26 at N.C.State University.

The weeklong intensive study hands-on workshop teaches students about natural resources and their management. Students are housed in campus dormitories. Students who are eligible include rising sophomores, juniors and seniors. High school graduates are not eligible. Home schooled students are eligible. The intent is to seek out students who have not made up their minds about college.

The Davie Soil and Water Conservation District will pay for the registration, as well as provide money for meals.  The district may also be able to assist in transportation.

The district will arrange for local publicity and ask the student to attend the  district board meeting before and after the workshop to learn objectives and report on the experience.

The deadline is May 15.

Contact the Davie Soil and Water Conservation District for more information and an application, 180 S. Main St. (beside the Courthouse) in Mocksville and our phone number is 336-751-5011.
