Calling all Members of Healthy Programs!

So, the Healthy Kids Challenge (HKC) has a special challenge for you. Yes, you! They want you to share your most AWE-some nutrition lesson or project! The HKC believes that kids learn about healthy lifestyles best through activities that are…

Appealing and fun.
Welcome and inviting.
Easy and Simple.

We here at BGCIC tend to agree. And we know that our Native Clubs run AWE-some activities every day.
This challenge is a chance for you to showcase that work.

The Challenge

So here’s the scoop: the HKC wants you to submit either a lesson plan or a project idea for the Nutrition Ed Tool Box Challenge. It can be an activity you have used before with your Club kids or one that you have developed to use that has science-based nutrition content. Your activity should incorporate ideas and information from evidence-based resources such as MyPlate or USDA Nutrition content or guidelines. Submitting is easy.

Just type up your ideas and enter them online with the HKC before December 15, 2014.


Protecting our Native youth through bullying prevention

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. This means there are two more weeks to raise awareness and share prevention techniques to make our communities a safe environment for Native youth.

What is bullying?

Before we can prevent bullying, we have to first know how to identify it. Bullying can happen in a lot of different ways. But based on a definition from the Native Ed Review, bullying can include any of the following acts:

  • Online or in person aggressive behaviors committed by another youth or group of youth
  • One or more students tease, threaten, spread rumors or physically hit, shove, or hurt another student repeatedly
  • Shunning peers and encouraging mental or physical isolation
