Swan River Nature Trail
Easton Branam, Bigfork High School
after I passed the first gate, the air changed, cooled by the trees and
muddy gravel. I was late, but despite my speed I was awed at every bend
in the road. My weary body was renewed with the sight of fragrant
honeysuckle vines, young wildflowers, and sunlit stretches of the river."
The Pow-Wow Trail
Gail Grant, Ronan High School
"The air is dusty and
you stand in the hot sun, closing your eyes for a moment, dizzied with the feeling
that’s indescribable. Your heart begins to race and you get that urge to do everything
at once. It’s at this moment you realize this is where you belong."
A Ghost Town: Gold
Julia Dafoe & Megan Maki, Chester High School
"But memories linger,
haunting the ghost town of Gold Butte in the Sweetgrass Hills. Only a few old-timers
who were alive to experience Gold Butte still survive to tell us how it was."
Expectations—Cause or Effect
Dorothea Susag, Simms High School
though our standards are very high, we still find that the Heritage
Project has a way of firing up the imagination of some students, leading
to efforts that go beyond our expectations."
Changing Lives, Changing the World
Rose Goyen, Libby High School
" This approach to teaching has the power to
change lives–both of teachers and of students. And in doing that, it
has the power to change the world."
