The Arctic Winter Games – a fascinating sporting event and cultural hub for young people


FindYourStampsValue.com is glad to inform that Grenland Post is ready to release a special additional value stamp celebrating the upcoming Arctic Winter Games. The issue consists of one stamp that is to be put into circulation on the 19th of January.

The Arctic Winter Games (AWG) are to be held from 6th to 12th March 2016. For the second time Nuuk will be the host city for the Arctic Winter Games, where Inuit and Sami compete for a week. The sports disciplines will be both traditional Inuit sports and skiing as well as more modern sports such as ice hockey, volleyball and indoor football.

AWG is much more than a sporting event. It is a cultural hub where young people get the opportunity to see others from their own hometown, the opportunity to test their athletic abilities, be together with other young people across the country, with other cultures and languages.
