Three NWT-based entrepreneurs are in the running for Arctic Future Challenge awards, a circumpolar contest for Arctic youth developing businesses or concepts.
Joel Dragon Smith, of Yellowknife, is representing Canada in the best Arctic youth business concept category, while Kylik Taylor and Charlotte Sofie Holtkamp – with Tundra North Tours in Inuvik – are competing in two categories: Arctic youth startup of the year and Arctic youth founders of the year.
In the spring of 2020, youth aged 18 to 29 from Greenland, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and the United States were nominated in the three categories. Three national winners were selected, one in each category, and are now competing for the public’s vote to win their respective overall categories.
