Are you looking for an opportunity to demonstrate your park activating and/or hunting prowess? Here is your chance!
4 times a year POTA has a sesonal "Support Your Parks Event" to encourage individuals to get out in the parks and make contacts. During the summer event, one of the program administrators volunteers
to coordinate the sponsorship and give-away of plaques based on the results of the 48 hour long activity.
These are no ordinary QSO party plaques! During this event we give away premium series plaques, on black piano-finish wood.
The award is laser engraved on an 8x10 textured black aluminum plate with a silver Florentine border - these are high quality awards that
any operator should be proud to hang on the wall of their shack! Check out previous years results further down this page for actual pictures
of previously awarded plaques.
The first annual plaque season started when N3VEM and K0ATZ decided to sponser a plaque each - one for hunters and one for activators.
The event was very successful, so starting in 2019 there will be a slightly larger selection of plaques available. For 2019 we are now "fully sponsored" but
if you are considering sponsoring a plaque next year, please review the sponsorship information so that you are ready to go when
the 2020 plaque season comes around!
* Plaque winners outside of the continental US will be responsible for any cost associated with shipping plaques. Winners will have an opportunity to decline the physical plaque if desired.
* The POTA database will be used for data collection for the awards. All activator logs must be submitted within 3 weeks of the end of the event, winners will be announced before the end of the following month. Hunters do not submit logs.
