The University of Mount Olive will host the 2019 NC Tobacco Trust Fund Comission Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Camp for high school FFA members at least 15 years of age July 8-12, 2019. This week also includes a professional development institute for current agricultural education teachers to focus on improving SAE participation and cultivating new and innovative ideas for student SAE projects.
This weeklong overnight camp is designed to introduce students to the agriculture industry and showcase the diversity of agriculture in North Carolina. This will be a residential camp and chaperones will be provided for the entire week by UMO. Teacher attendance is not required for student participation in the TTFC SAE Camp. Students and teachers will be separated for several activities, but some time will be provided to collaborate.
This camp is provided at no cost to the student, thanks to a grant from the North Carolina Tobacco Trust Fund Commission. Students can earn up to 45 hours of SAE credit by attending this weeklong camp.
All applicants will need to submit their application online by May 15, 2019. The student application requires that transcripts and proof of age be emailed to Dr. Sandy Maddox at email@example.com. The letter of recommendation from the teacher, release of liability form, and photo release form signed by a parent or guardian, and the essay may be uploaded directly to the application. Each will need to be completed before beginning the online application because it will not save applicant information to return and complete later. There is a listing of all necessary documents and a link at the top of the application to save or print each of the required documents.
