Be the Spark Challenge
What is the Be The Spark Challenge?
The mission of Be The Spark Challenge is to spread positivity, hope and love in the Nunavik region.
To participate, you need to share an accomplishment that you are proud of. This accomplishment can been done by YOU or by SOMEONE ELSE. The person who did the accomplishment received a Qarjuit gift 😊.
What is an accomplishment?
An accomplishment can be anything that makes you proud. It can be about anything. Doing something kind for a friend, giving your best at school and at work, or simply cooking a meal for your family. EVERY ACCOMPLISHMENT IS VALUABLE.
The Be The Spark Challenge was a first-of-its-kind annual event hosted by Qarjuit Youth Council to share inspiration and spread positivity among youth in Nunavik & Chisasibi!
Our next Be the Spark Challenge will be in March, 2020. Please stay tuned!
