Video Clip Contest
Yukon Chamber of Mines is very excited to announce a new video clip contest! Film a 30 second clip of yourself that relates to the Yukon mining industry for a chance to win a round trip on Air North- Yukon's Airline! This is a great way to demonstrate what mining contributes to you, your family and communities. It can be as simple as filming yourself taking a soil sample while explaining what you are doing! It can be on any topic of your choosing, as long as it relates to mining in some way.
Videos sent to us via email will be posted on our Facebook page, and the video with the most likes will be announced the winner on August 31, 2015.
