WINFIELD - Rep. Tracy Estes, R-Winfield, has announced middle school students in House District 17 may apply for one of two scholarships to attend space camp at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.
Officially known as Space Academy for Leading Students in Alabama (SALSA), the annual event will be held from May 24-29, 2020, with a graduation ceremony scheduled for the final day of the week-long event. However, the application deadline to earn a scholarship to attend is scheduled for Jan. 31, 2020.
“As we did last year, we are attempting to make information about the camp available to the public as quickly as possible,’’ said Estes. “I want all who are interested to have the time needed to research the information and complete the application process.’’
Attendance to the prestigious camp is free, as the Alabama Legislature provides the funding necessary to cover all tuition costs for two students from each of the state’s 140 legislative districts. There are 105 members of the Alabama House of Representatives and 35 members of the Senate.
