November 30, 2015 – Thank you to everyone who submitted songs to our 75th Anniversary of the Alaska Highway Theme Song contest!

Wow.

We received 23 amazing submissions. Some songs gave us goose bumps, some made us want to dance, some gave us a whole new way of looking at the highway. Above all, your submissions proved that, while what you write and sing about is important, it is the way you write and sing that leaves a mark. We are honored to have received your diverse and distinctive talents. And now we leave it to Roy Forbes and Caroline Woodward to choose the “official” theme song.
