The youth in our region are critical to the success of the Games! We want to engage as many students and young people from our region to get involved with the Games. The 2015 Wood Buffalo goal is to reach and visit all schools in the region. A special thanks to our Education and Youth Sponsor Canadian Natural Resources Limited for coming on board the 2015 Wood Buffalo team to make sure the students in our region get to experience what the Games are all about!
Here are just a few of our Education and Youth program elements:
• Games themed intramural programs
• Involvement in pep rallies, school events and sport competitions
• Student specific torch bearer selections working through the school districts. Stay tuned for more details or contact [email protected] if you’re a school looking to make nominations.
• School-based rural torch relay events
• Full education manual with cross-curricular activities and activity cards written by local teachers for teachers. Print copies available within the region with digital editions available online for all on our website.
• Year-end sport days to include visits from our official mascot Mistiko
