AWG International Committee
The focus of the Arctic Winter Games International Committee (AWGIC) is still the same today as it was in 1970, to involve as many participants as possible and to provide a forum of competition for those other than elite athletes with competitive opportunities in the south.
One of the most important functions of the AWGIC is its responsibility for nurturing and protecting the extraordinary impact that the Arctic Winter Games have on the north. The Games achieve these results because they bring together, in one community, a multitude of visiting athletes, coaches, cultural participants, volunteers, media, visitors, officials and community leaders from around the Circumpolar and northern world for seven days of athletic competition, cultural exchange and social interaction.
