Why Is There Six Months of Daylight in Alaska?

Answer

The reason why there are 6 months of daylight in Alaska is, because of the Alaska being at the axis of the earth. It takes 6 months for the axis to revolve away from the sun and then 6 months to revolve totally back to the sun. You can imagine being new to Alaska and learning to sleep when it is daylight all the time.

Nowhere in Alaska. The only places in the world with "6 months" of dark & light are the North and South poles. The most northern part of Alaska is Point Barrow.
