To celebrate the launch of Kid's Arctic Art Incentive we kickstarted with a mini-contest. Thank you to everyone who made it a huge success. Congratulations to the Winners of our Draw Your Favorite Animal Mini-Contest.
Churchill, Manitoba, is a unique gem in Canada's arctic. The splendor and beauty of this unique arctic oasis is met with equally harsh and relentlessly long winters. Our goal is to provide a reward program for the children of this remote community to explore the arts. Children growing up in Churchill still find a lack of fine art opportunities in this beautiful but isolated community.
Spearheading this incentive is Artist / Designer, Kim Hunter, whose own diligence and successes in the arts have only fueled the fire to encourage the artistic expression of the arctic community in which she was raised. Click on image to visit Kim's web site.
One of Canada's most famous remote communities has been the inspiration for thousands of visitors who come to Churchill each year to see polar bears, beluga whales, over 200 species of birds, the historical Fort Prince of Wales, and one of the most diverse and delicate ecosystems on earth.
As an isolated community with air or rail being the only means of transportation to the south, the long and grueling 9 month winters limit options for extracurricular activities. The culture and history of this remote community is a vibrant representation of the history and diversity in the heart and soul of our country. While welcoming the world to their doorstep, Churchill retains the fortitude and strength of its culture and community, which gives the children of the north a unique perspective. The community and the school are enthusiastic participants in the Kid's Arctic Art Incentive program. Showing support and giving these kids the opportunity to experience and take initiatives in the arts, enriches both the student and the community.
This is the reason Kid's Arctic Art Incentive Inc. was created.

Kid's Arctic Art Incentive donation boxes are available at local businesses and tour outfitters within the town of Churchill to receive donations locally. Tourists and locals alike are encouraged to make small contributions.
Above and beyond the simplest of awards that can be supplied by the volunteers, the monies collected from donations, sponsorship and gift shop 'swag' sales will determine the caliber of the award(s) granted. The enthusiastic support of the supporters, volunteers, community and school is the backbone of this initiative.
We imagine a little project like Kid's Arctic Art Incentive Inc. with the help of its supporters, will flower into a fantastic opportunity for the children and communities of Canada's arctic to be enriched and inspired by art worldwide.
Kind and creative regards,
Founder of Kid's Arctic Art Incentive Inc.
