Recognizing the Contributors to Amateur Radio
The HamCation committee presents outstanding awards each year to very deserving people that go above and beyond to contribute and grow our amateur radio community. These individuals are not ones to seek recognition for what they do. That is what the Ham Radio community is all about. So, we want to recognize a few of these outstanding individuals each year that make this community the greatest in the world.
The Carole Perry Educator of the Year award is given to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to educating and advancing youth in amateur radio. Nominations for 2023 are closed.
The Gordon West Ambassador of the Year Award is presented annually to an outstanding Amateur who represents and inspires others and embodies the amateur radio spirit and has made outstanding contributions to the Amateur Radio community. Nominations for 2023 are closed.
