Accessing Choices in Education (ACE)
The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Accessing Choices in Education Project enhances student and family educational choices by creating a Service Provider System that includes evidence-based, culturally responsive service options to improve Native American student academic outcomes.

The Challenge Bowl is a Muscogee (Creek) Nation event that is administered through the Johnson O’Malley Program.
The purpose of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Challenge Bowl is to promote our children to learn about the Creek culture, history, government, and language using traditional values of brotherhood as a foundation. The Challenge Bowl Committee made a commitment to set by example, positive role models in good citizenship and tribal pride that would carry on throughout the year and not just during the few days of competition.
Each year Muscogee (Creek) Nation employees and community members prepare for the competition by having monthly core group sessions to prepare the study guides, competition questions, and conducting training sessions for volunteers. It is a great deal of work but seeing the faces of the students, parents, and sponsors during the competition and awards ceremony is worthwhile. The Challenge Bowl brings the schools, community, employees, and citizens together with the common goal of developing tribal pride within our youth.
