The Cherokee Nation WIC Nutrition Program is administering the Summer Nutrition Project. The Summer Nutrition Project is only available to students eligible for free/reduced school meals during summer months when school is not in session. Students do not have to be tribal members to apply. This is not the WIC Nutrition Program: however, it provides the same foods WIC offers. The Summer Nutrition Card works like a debit card. Food is loaded onto your Summer Nutrition Card before you receive it for three benefit periods. Each school age child in the household will receive food on the Summer Nutrition Card for each of the summer months. You can use your Summer Nutrition Card at the grocery stores that accept the Cherokee Nation eWIC card If you have any questions you can call the Summer Nutrition Project team at 539-234-3265 or email WICSEBTC@cherokee.org To apply go to link below: https://health.cherokee.org/public-health/women-infants-children/sebtc/

2021 Youth Tour Essay & Scholarship Contest. Every year the junior class writes for The Cookson Hills Essay Contest. 4 or 5 of the best papers are chosen to be read by other outside readers. From those 4-5 papers, 2 are chosen to represent our school. Out of 2 sent in by every school district in the Cookson Hills area, 10 are chosen for an interview. Out of those 10, 2 are usually chosen for a trip to Washington DC and a $1000 scholarship. However, this year, because of Covid-19, they chose 4 winners who would receive $2000 in scholarship money instead. Andie Jones was a finalist and received a $250 scholarship. Gabriella Linares was one of the winners chosen and she received a $2000 scholarship. Congratulations Andie and Gabriella!!
