Dream Rig Essay Contest Winners

Congratulations to the Intrepid-DX group's Dream Rig Essay Contest Winners!!!  Below is the notice from the Intrepid DX Group:

It is with great pleasure that we announce the winners of the 3rd Annual Youth “Dream Rig” Essay Contest.

We received essays from young amateurs from all over the world.

Each essay was unique in thought and very well-written.  Extra consideration was given for correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling.  The essays gave interesting perspectives on how to reach out and connect with the youth of today, and we will be sharing those ideas in subsequent postings.

First Place winner, ICOM IC-7300: Maria Polyanska VE3OMV 

Second Place winner, Yaesu FT-65R radio: Ryan Kocourek N7RSK

Third Place winner, Yaesu FT-65R radio: Toby Latino AG5ZM

Having read your many essays this week, we can tell you that our youth are full of great ideas, and they are brimming with enthusiasm to keep our hobby alive well into the future.

Thank you to our sponsor, Robert Chortek AA6VB for providing the funds for this year's prizes.

Thank you to all of the youth participants for helping us make our third annual Youth Essay Contest a success.  Let’s do this again next year!

Best wishes & Happy Holidays!
