Dream Rig Essay Contest Winners

Intrepid DX Dream Rig Essay Contest Winners

Congratulations to Silas Davis, W3SED; Olivia Lee, KD2UYX; and Isaac Schmidt, K6IAS. These three youth wrote the winning essays in the Intrepid-DX Group's second annual Youth 'Dream Rig' Contest. Hams from around the United States who are 19 years old or younger were eligible. Silas, the first place winner, is 9.

This year's contest took place with the help of funding from Amateur Radio Digital Communications. The youngsters were asked to address the question of how amateur radio can evolve to remain relevant in the internet age.

You can find the winning essays on the ARDC webpage. In announcing the winners previously, Paul Ewing, N6PSE, president of the Intrepid-DX Group, said the essays were "brimming with enthusiasm to keep our hobby alive well into the future."
