SD: Grants Awarded Through South Dakota Archery Program

PIERRE, S.D. – A dozen lucky South Dakota schools have hit the
“bulls-eye” in obtaining grants from funding procured by the state
Game, Fish and Parks Department.

Grants totaling $12,000 are being shared by 12 schools to
purchase of archery equipment for participation in the National
Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). The grants, accompanied by
additional funding from GFP, will allow the schools to receive
their archery equipment free of charge.

Schools receiving the funds include Red Shirt School, Saint
Francis Indian School, Little Wound elementary and middle schools,
American Horse, Red Cloud elementary and high schools, Eagle Butte
elementary and high schools, McIntosh, Norris and Porcupine.

All of the schools participated in a full day of archery safety
and proficiency training at the Outdoor Campus West in Rapid City
on Oct. 13, sponsored and funded by GFP.

The $12,000 grant was awarded to GFP through a joint grant
program of the Easton Foundation and the NASP Foundation. The money
was awarded on the condition that the funds are used to promote
archery in schools that would be unable to purchase the equipment
on their own.

Each of the 12 schools receiving grants will get $1,000 worth of
archery equipment to be used in their in-school archery
programs.
