If you were born between April 1, 1988 and April 1, 1997 you are eligable for the Arctic Winter Games. There are 2 categories, Juvenile (born between April 1 1993 & March 31, 1997) and a Junior category (born between April 1, 1988 and March 31, 1993). There are two candidates selected for each division, with one alternate for each category.A selection committee of three mushers will decide who will represent Alaska at the upcoming games based on race record, sportsmanship and character after completing the questionaires. The decision will be made in October 2007.Any junior musher wishing to be part of “Team Alaska” competing in Dog Mushing, should contact Ron Kilian at (907) 694-6220 or e-mail for details.
