Whitehorse will host the 2012 Arctic Winter Games
By Native Village
The Arctic Winter Games is the world’s largest northern multi-sport and cultural event. The Games include teams from Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Alberta North, Nunavut, Greenland, Yamal, Nunavik Quebec and Sapmi.
The Arctic Winter Games celebrate athletics, culture, friendship and cooperation among northern contingents. Competitions include traditional Arctic Sports, Dene Games, and today's popular sports. Another pillar of the AWG is honoring the many Northern cultures through visual arts, dance, ceremonies and galas.
Whitehorse was chosen to host the 2012 Arctic Winter Games by the Arctic Winter Games International Committee. The committee selects host cities and helps produce the event. They also award the Hodgson Trophy to the group whose athletes best exemplify the ideals of fair play and team spirit.
