ARLB099 Maxim Award nominations

Headquarters is in the receive mode for nominations for the Hiram
Percy Maxim Memorial Award. The award is given annually to the
licensed radio amateur under age 21 whose accomplishments and
contributions are of the most exemplary nature within the framework
of Amateur Radio activities, including, but not limited to:

Participation or leadership in organizational affairs at the local
or national level.

Technical achievement.

Operating record.

Recruitment and training of new amateurs.

Public relations activities.

In keeping with the tradition of the award when it was first
established in 1936, formal nominations are made by section
managers.  Supporting information, including the endorsement of
ARRL-affiliated clubs and elected or appointed League leadership
officials, should be submitted with the nomination. An award panel
will review the nominations received and select the winner. The
prize is a cash award of 1000 dollars, a suitably engraved plaque,
and travel and accommodation expenses to enable the winner to attend
an ARRL convention for a formal award presentation.

Nominations should document as thoroughly as possible the Amateur
Radio achievements and contributions of the nominee during the
previous calendar year. Additional information concerning the
character of the nominee should be as complete as possible.

The award is intended to provide a tangible reward to those
deserving young amateurs who contribute their time, skills and
energies daily through their commitment to Amateur Radio. As models
for their peers, and inspirations to us all, these fine young people
are highly visible boosters of Amateur Radio awareness. We must
continue to recognize and encourage their hard work and
contributions at every opportunity.

Nominations must be sent to the section manager. Nominations must be
received at Headquarters from section managers by March 31, 1997.
There is no limit to the number of nominations one may make. For
more information or an application form, contact Rick Palm, K1CE,
Field Services Manager, at ARRL Headquarters.
