Congratulations to Project Whitefish Kids for being honored with the 2016 Great Fish Award! This award was presented at the Great Fish Community Challenge awards presentation along with a $2,500 grant.

In the past this award has recognized an organization that has made a substantial and significant contribution to the betterment of the Whitefish community. In the future, this award will also recognize the organization that participated in the Challenge and demonstrated commitment, enthusiasm, and creativity during the Challenge. Project Whitefish Kids put Great Fish banners up at the Heidi and Rollie Smith Youth Sports Complex, which they manage; helped set up the 5K Color Run race course; and were involved with the Challenge from beginning to end.

The mission of Project Whitefish Kids is to provide a safe haven and aesthetically pleasing youth sports park for the families of Whitefish and the greater Flathead Valley.
