Youth involvement in contests and special events is increasing all the time.  Here are some on-air activities that specifically cater to young operators.  If you have a youth appropriate operating event to add to this list, please email us at webmaster@youthontheair.org.  Also, check out programs for youth on our links page! If you have a youth net, please list it on the ARRL Youth Nets page.  Since ARRL already has a central location for that information, we are just providing a link to that site below.
