Spotlighting Recreation in the NWT: Bright Spots!


Do you know an organization or individual who is doing something awesome in recreation?


Bright Spots turn our attention to what organizations and communities are doing well. They celebrate innovation and success in recreation and On the Land programming in the NWT.


Each year, we welcome up to four presenters from around the territory to tell us about their inspiring program or event.


We’re looking for organizations in the NWT that have seen particular success with or positive responses to one of their recreation-related initiatives (programs, events, etc).


We will choose three or four organizations to present during the NWTRPA Annual Conference in Fort Smith from October 4th to 6th, 2022.


Organizations are encouraged to nominate their own programs!


To see some previous winners, you can watch our YouTube video from the 2020 Bright Spots that were presented virtually due to COVID-19. The presentation included the Dark Sky Festival, the 2020 Fun Run/Walk Challenge, and the Western Arctic Youth Collective.


We look forward to hosting the presentations in person this year at our annual Conference; see you there!


The deadline to submit your Bright Spot application is July 29th, 2022.
