Manitouwadge Frosty Days Winter Carnival was another big success this year and the NWMO was happy to once again provide sponsorship.

The Kiwissa Ski Hill was the site for the at the 11th annual Cardboard Box Races on a crisp Saturday afternoon in mid-February. Local residents showed off their fantastic sleds and money raised went to Manitouwadge High School, who were also the event organizers.

Additionally, the NWMO sponsored prizes for the best snowman or ice sculpture, as well as the annual family ice fishing derby over an eventful weekend of community activities.
