Approximately $3 million available to northern teams across three prize categories
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2022 prize with up to 10 teams able to win prize money to help them launch initiatives that will bring about the changes they want to see in their communities. Check out the 2022 nomination guides and templates here.
“Last year the AIP celebrated its 10th anniversary of by the North, for the North impact. Eight incredible teams are now set to make their dreams, and those of their communities, a reality. We can’t wait to see what Northerners can come up with this year,” says Wally Schumann, Chair, AIP Charitable Trust. “There are no ideas too big or too small, and I especially want to challenge youth from across the North, to seize this opportunity to make your dreams come true.”
Nomination details: Teams can be nominated in one of three categories: one exceptional team can win $1 million, up to four teams can win up to $500,000 each, and up to seven youth teams can win up to $100,000 each. The Youth prize category seeks to inspire the next generation of northern innovators to develop projects that address issues and opportunities relevant to them. Nominations will be accepted until October 12, 2022.
Potential projects can address any opportunities or challenges that are of importance to our communities across the North. A project can have one or more focus areas such as, but not limited to: education, health and wellbeing, culture, arts and language, science and traditional knowledge, climate change and the economy.
Youth Teams: To make the prize more accessible to young people across the North, teams in the Youth category can submit parts of their nomination in video format.
More information on the AIP: Last year, for the second year in a row, more than $3 million was shared among eight northern teams for their innovative plans to inspire change in their communities. The $1 million prize went to Ilagiitigut anngiangijaqatigiinnirq ilurqusivuttigut for their project that seeks tobring together elders, addiction counsellors, hunters, scholars and community members to address the root causes of addiction – including intergenerational trauma – through Inuit values and culture. This ambitious initiative will support families following the recovery program together in a new 32-bed facility. In addition, five prizes were awarded in the AIP category that awards up to $500,000; and two teams received funds for their projects in the Youth category that awards up to $100,000.
The submission deadline for Letters of Intent is September 6, 2022 and the deadline for nominations is October 12, 2022.
