I am writing to you today with hopes that you can help to promote the Students on Ice 2017 Arctic Expedition in your school. I am contacting you specifically because one of our 2016 applicants listed you as a teacher contact – thank you for your support!
The expedition dates are August 08 to August 23, 2017. We begin in Ottawa, ON and will travel together to Resolute Bay, NU and sail through the high Canadian Arctic to Pond Inlet and Sirmilik National Park and then over to western Greenland.
The themes for the 2017 Arctic Expedition mirror those of the Government of Canada’s mission for Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation and include: Youth Engagement, Environment, Reconciliation and Diversity & Inclusion.
The Student Application Form is available online (click HERE) and the deadline to be considered for scholarships is March 1st – 3 weeks left!!
