Cochise County's Healthy Twist 

Photos from Cochise County School Superintendent's Thanksgiving Culinary Challenge. Held November 23rd at the Mall at Sierra Vista. Four student culinary teams from Buena, Douglas, St. David and Tombstone, participated in this year's inaugural contest held at the Sierra Vista Mall.


The theme was "A twist on holiday tradition". The students offered up healthy and delicious versions of holiday food. Tombstone with their Cauliflower "Mac" and Cheese won the Judge's Choice Award, St. David placed second, "The Hungry Tiger" offered a larger menu. They prepared a turkey dinner with salad, pasta salad, turkey and ham sliders and a pumpkin bar for desert. Buena's dish of Thanksgiving spring rolls with rice paper, lettuce, roasted green beans, carrots, roasted turkey and rice noodles won over the fans and took First Place in the People's Choice Award. Douglas High offered up healthy treats using superfoods, like beats and dates for those with a sweet tooth.


A special thanks to all who helped to make this event a success, especially the students and our judges. This year, our judges were Alexandra Bo of the Blueberry Cafe, Tom Borer, Cochise County Supervisor (District 1), Cochise County Sheriff,  Mark Dannels, Tony Pham of Indochine Restaurant and of course the Grinch from Mt. Crumpit.

Healthy Communities

Cochise County School's will continue to explore, move forward together ensuring economic Independence for all of our students and economic success for our County.





We are all born with something in our DNA that promotes greatness.  Using a comprehensive systems-thinking approach, our educators, parents, and community members can work collaboratively to uncover the niche found in every student.  This information is powerful when it correlates with the needs of our society.  Education, when applied correctly, will provide economic independence for our students and economic success in our community, cities, states, and nation.
