Blackfeet Housing recently participated in many local student incentives programs. We would like to thank the schools for allowing us to be a part of their incentives programs again this year. BH would also like to thank 3 Rivers RadioShack, Mark Lanes Bowling, and the Heavy Runner Swimming Pool for their contributions to the prize pool.

We hope these prizes help to inspire students to continue striving for excellence in […]
