YASME Foundation Supports Young Contesters at WRTC-2006

Because radio contesting needs to attract and support youth, the YASME 
Foundation (http://www.yasme.org) announces a donation of $10,000 to 
WRTC-2006 (http://www.wrtc2006.com) in support of youth participation. These 
funds will be used to help Young Contesters from around the world attend and 
participate in WRTC-2006, to be held in Florianopolis, Brazil in July 2006. 
WRTC-2006 has dedicated three two-person team allocations to Young Contester 
teams. Additional Young Contesters may participate as part of multi-operator 
teams. We encourage young amateurs with a strong interest in contesting to 
make their applications for those positions by 20 Jan 2006. The 
qualifications and criteria for Young Contesters to apply to multi-operator 
teams will be announced shortly. While the multi-operator teams will operate 
at existing stations in Brazil, Young Contesters qualifying for the WRTC2006 
competitor teams are expected to bring their own equipment.
