    CQ magazine does sponsor Under 21 plaques in the CQWW DX test and may do so in the WPX. I know the ARRL DX used to have under 18 plaques (I won it three straight years a while ago).

    I doubt you;re going to get a new category as the major contests already have HUNDREDS of categories in a contest.

    There are a number of youth oriented contests out there. LIDfest was one organized by the WWYC last month and was quite humorous to watch unfold on 80 meters and on DXSummit. Their website is www.wwyc.net and a bunch of them are on IRC chat 24 hours a day in the #wwyc room.

    I will talk to John, K1AR, and Doug, K1DG

    They both have countless influence and I am sure that they would be able to get something going

    I'm jumping in a little late here, but I completely agree.

    Actually, Kids day is not a contest and the School Club roundup is not centred on kids, but rather school clubs, and most of the clubs are at universities. Yes, thats a bit better but two things: It's not focused completely on young hams, and not all kids can be a member of a club. I know three young hams, plus myself, and all are homeschooled.

    I wrote an article on this on eHam.net, but it hasn't been posted yet. Hopefully it will be soon though.

    I still haven't heard back from the CQWW folks or WPX.

    And I told you what I hear from the ARRL :mad:

    Yes, well, it doesn't neccisarily have to be organized by either. All you need is publicity, and I've been told several times that I should write an article in QST. Ah, the power of the press...

    Now if only the idea could come through :D

    On what?

    FWIW, it probably won't show up for a while.
    A friend submitted an article in February I think, it showed up in February too.
    The next year.

    But that's cool!
