CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Tenth graders are being encouraged to sign up for this summer’s West Virginia Science Camp.

Sponsored by the state Department of Education and the National Youth Science Foundation, this year’s camp will take place from July 15 to 23 at Cedar Lakes Conference Center near Ripley. It will host one 10th grader from all 55 counties.

High schools must select student nominees by April 17. County superintendents will then select one student to attend the camp and up to nine alternates.
