IARU Region 2 reports on a welcome move in North America to encourage young radio amateurs to participate in contests
The IARU Region 2 site says:
The IARU Region 2 Executive Committee congratulates the National Contest Journal (NCJ) for recognizing young operators’ entries for the North American QSO Party (NAQP) CW and SSB contests in August 2021.
The 3830scores.com site will add a YOTA checkbox for their identification.
IARU R2 strongly believes that encouraging young operators to actively participate in various amateur radio activities is key for the future of amateur radio.
IARU R2 sponsors a regular bilingual English/Spanish session for young radio amateurs across the Americas. These sessions are an opportunity to share their experiences in the many possible amateur activities to attract new amateurs and increase the number of active young amateurs. This Group meets virtually twice per month and is open to all that wish to participate. For more information, please contact the IARU R2 Youth Liaison, Sterling Mann N0SSC, at firstname.lastname@example.org
