2015 NYO Games Alaska

One-Hand-ReachEach year, more than 2,000 students from more than 50 communities across the state of Alaska participate in the NYO and JNYO Games.

Youth strive for their personal best while competing in traditional contests including the Alaskan High Kick, Seal Hop and many more.

NYO is open to youth from all backgrounds, and fosters important values including teamwork, leadership, respect, and healthy lifestyles.

Hosting NYO is a team effort, made possible by individuals and businesses who donate their time, talent and financial support to the Games each year.

Join us! Together, we will carry on this cherished community event that celebrates Alaska’s rich heritage and builds tomorrow’s leaders.
