Attention 8th – 10th grade girls – Alabama Power is sponsoring a summer event called ‘Girls Can’ Construction Camp which will be held June 6th -10th. This is a hands-on camp featuring welding, carpentry, electrical and other construction specialties. ‘Girls Can’ camp is a great chance to learn a new set of skills and make new friends. This year, you will be building an Adirondack chair, a sprinkler, an industrial-style lamp, and welding metals together to form a piece of art. You will be working side by side with professional women in completing your projects and meeting women who do some pretty amazing things in their jobs. Pick up an application from your counselor, complete it, and return it to your counselor. Application deadline is April 29th. Make this summer one to remember and don’t miss this great opportunity. See your counselor today for more information!
