The YOUTH Overlay in the recent CQWW SSB contest was a big success already!
The CQWW Director (K1AR) reached out to the IARU R1 Youth Working Group and reported that over 100 YOUTH logs from all over the world were submitted within the log deadline!
We think, that this was definitely a good start for the first event.
Therefore, just a little reminder to be forwarded to all interested youngsters as CQWW CW is upcoming in less than a week [27th + 28th November 2021] — already.

CQWW committee stated earlier that:
1) We have created a new YOUTH overlay that will be available to all competitors who are 25 years old or under, effective on the dates of the contest. The Cabrillo overlay format will be CATEGORY-OVERLAY: YOUTH. In support of this change, Youth overlay entries will be highlighted in the results (as is currently done for Classic and Rookies). In addition, plaques will be available for the winners.
Read more about the current rule changes here.
These changes will apply in SSB and CW parts of CQWW from 2021!
We are also proud to announce that several IARU Youth Working Groups, YOTA Teams and individuals worldwide will sponsor the accompanying plaques for this new YOUTH overlay.
Check out all available plaques for the 2021 events here.
Thanks to all involved into the process to making this happen!
One of the few things left is to plan your CQWW effort now and win the new YOUTH plaques!
