This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Arctic Inspiration Prize (AIP). Nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 prize with up to 10 teams able to win prize money to help launch initiatives to benefit their Arctic communities. 

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. To make the prize more accessible to young people across the North, the AIP will accept video submissions for the youth prize category this year. 

Potential projects can focus on one or more areas such as, but not limited to: education, training, health and wellness, environment and climate change, recreation, tourism, culture, language, and economic development. 

The submission deadline for the Letter of Intent is September 7, 2021. Nominations will be accepted until October 13, 2021.
