The Sophomore Challenge Scholarship is unique to our school. Sophomores are introduced to college scholarship requirements through this award-winning program. Selected students receive a base amount of $1000 with an extra $1000 available if they graduate from OHS with a 3.0 or better grade point average.

The Okemah Public School Foundation will award scholarships to Okemah sophomores based upon financial need, scholarship, answers to essay questions and letters of recommendation. The recipients of the base scholarship of $1000 will be notified at the end of the sophomore year. The Foundation will then challenge the recipients to add $250 to the base scholarship each following semester by staying in school and maintaining a 3.0 or better grade point average. The maximum amount of this scholarship is $2000.

Scholarship money will be given to recipients based upon individual student needs after confirmation of enrollment at an accredited university, college or vocational/technical school. This scholarship will expire after the recipient’s fund has been depleted or upon failure to maintain enrollment for more than two consecutive semesters.
