The 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 link to Photo Contestthe 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.

Since 1953 the Territorial Sportsmen Scholarship Foundation has awarded 337 scholarships totaling over 2 million dollars to deserving young people.
