The Youth On The Air Camp is being held this summer in Cincinnati, Ohio. It's an opportunity for licensed Amateur Radio youth to gather and learn from one another through workshops and hands-on activities.

"From now until the end of February 2020, every dollar donated in support of the Youth on the Air Camp will be matched by Steve, KM9G, up to a total of $4000! Your donations in support of this unique opportunity for youth to share ham radio with their peers will count DOUBLE until the end of February. For links and details, visit YouthOnTheAir.org and click "Donate" in the top right corner." 

Applications to the Youth On The Air Camp are being accepted through March 15, 2020. "Licensed amateur radio operators ages 15 through 25 who want to attend are encouraged to apply online at YouthOnTheAir.org. The camp will take place June 21 through June 26, 2020 at the National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting in West Chester Township (North Cincinnati), Ohio. The application process is FREE. The cost of the camp is $100 plus transportation to and from the VoA museum. The $100 fee will not be payable until after acceptance. Should a potential camper not be able to afford the $100 fee, he or she may apply for a scholarship. Campers will be selected by the committee and notified by the end of March."
