Golden North Salmon Derby is a fun filled summer fishing event that began in 1947. People
from all walks of life in the community participate. Families, people
(young and the young-at-heart)
that love to fish, and even some who don't but want to support the
purpose of the Derby spend the week-end in pursuit of Kings and
Cohos and the chance to compete for the prizes generously donated
by local businesses and individuals. Those that turn in fish that
are not competing for the top "weightiest"
fish receive thank you prizes in appreciation for providing these
fish to sell for scholarships for Juneau's young people. The proceeds
from the sale of these
fish minus the expenses of cleaning and handling are given to the Territorial Sportsmen Scholarship Foundation.
1953 the Territorial Sportsmen Scholarship Foundation has awarded
256 scholarships totaling over 1.5 million dollars
to deserving young people.
Four year scholarships
for graduating High School seniors are available as well as scholarships
for graduate study. Scholarships for vocational training are available
join us in investing in our young people!
