What is Inukshuk Challenge??

This is a unique and interesting philanthropic food donation event based on the manmade stone landmarks, Inukshuks. Inukshuks were originally used as sign posts or markers in wilderness areas that didn’t have many prominent geological features. Using the materials gathered, teams will assemble their own giant Inukshuk that will mark a cache of goods that will be donated at the end of the program. Some groups will realize early that their building success might depend on working together with their neighbors. While groups will have materials that are just sufficient to complete the task, they won’t have enough by themselves to create something spectacular. Only teams that begin to combine resources and help one another will make truly impressive Inukshuks.

How does it work?

Teams will rotate through these stations at set intervals. The challenge stations will each feature a theme that is in alignment with the actual real life uses of the Inukshuks.

Example Challenge: Inukshuk use: Marking a Cache of Food

Lighthouse Building – Starting with a set supply of non-perishable food, teams will attempt the build the tallest, unsupported structure from the ground using only the cans and boxes provided. The taller the structure, the farther it might be seen from a distance. Each team will then get to bring the food they used for building back to their areas – and it will become part of their donation.

Station completion prizes: permanent markers are used to help decorate their Inukshuks. They will also receive additional consumable items like baby food and juice boxes, which will help the community look after young children.

Introduction of the Charity – Donation

Representatives from the charity will share about their mission and history of their organization and speak about who will be receiving the donated goods. There will also be a group photo staged with everyone involved with the food donation – and some of the Inukshuks to add to the mix.
