What a Night!!

The opening ceremony for the 2010 Model Arctic was a smashing success. The youth entered the Beringia Centre with keen smiles and elegant wear. The event started with a little meet and greet, giving the youth a chance to introduce themselves. The amazing guest speakers welcomed the youth with open arms. Each guest speaker honoured and welcomed the youth. ‘Youth are the effective agents in change’ Kate White, the executive director of the United Nations explained in her speech. Grand Chief Ruth Massie believes ‘the youth will solve the climate change problem.’ The Honourable Premier Dennis Fentie also graced the youth with his words of wisdom ‘we are honoured and privileged to have the youth here in Whitehorse’, he explains, ‘your passion and voice is vital for change’. The open ceremony involved 8 guest speakers, all of which were grateful for the youth presence. The evening concluded with more meeting and greeting, coffee, and delicious cake from The Chocolate Claim!
