In the news this week

Sexual health program to expand with $1 million prize
Teenaged boys in the NWT will soon benefit from an adapted version of the FOXY sexual health and leadership program, which has already reached hundreds of young women in the territory. FOXY, which stands for "fostering open expression among youth," was presented with the $1 million Arctic Inspiration Prize by ArcticNet during a ceremony held at the Shaw Centre in downtown Ottawa on Dec. 10.

Crops for communities proposed by Gameti delegates
One hectare of crops in every community was one suggestion the delegates from Gameti offered to the second-annual anti-poverty roundtable, held in Yellowknife earlier this month. Judal Dominicata, senior administrative officer in Gameti, said residents in territorial villages are self-sufficient in many ways, but fresh vegetables are often in demand – and expensive to ship in from elsewhere – so his group suggested the GNWT support crop planting across the territory to boost supply.

Watching the shuttles soar
Badminton was the sport to play and the name of the game was the annual Junior and Senior Badminton Tournament held in Yellowknife on Nov. 28 and 29. A majority of the athletes hailed from the capital but others travelled in from Behchoko and Inuvik for the event. The seniors played at St. Patrick High School while the junior division dueled it out on the courts of Sir John Franklin High School.

Crazy for Christmas Crafts
Christmas is well on its way and there is no better indicator of that than the various craft and bake sales happening throughout the NWT. Some of the craft sales which have taken place in the past two weeks include the Behchoko Christmas Arts and Crafts Bazaar, Fort Simpson's annual Bompas Elementary School Bazaar and the East Three Secondary School's annual Christmas Coffee House in Inuvik.
