Swoosh Contest


Swoosh Contest


ASTAC  has been hosting a Swoosh free-throw contest in each of the eight residential communities it serves since 2009. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ASTAC changed its annual contest from an in-person free-throw competition to a photo contest.

Between October 1- November 30, 2020, participants submitted photos of themselves shooting a free-throw at their community’s outdoor basketball hoop using a smartphone.

All North Slope Borough residents were eligible to participate and need not be an ASTAC member.
