The Michigan QSO Party Awards Program recognizes entries for their accomplishments that year through a variety of plaques and certificates.


Plaque Program


The winners of each major category will be awarded a handsome plaque engraved with the year of the contest and the details of the winning effort.  Plaques will be awarded in the following categories:

* For purposes of the Out of State Single Operator award, the "western region" is defined as those states which lie entirely or mostly in the Pacific or Mountain Time Zones.  This includes the states of AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA and WY, plus the Canadian provinces of SK, AB, BC, NT and YT.  All other states and Canadian provinces are located in the "eastern region", which in general covers the Eastern and Central Time Zones.


A special plaque for 'MiQP Rookie Of The Year' will be awarded to the highest Michigan Single Operator score submitted by a first time MiQP participant.  To be eligible, the entrant must put the word "Rookie" somewhere on their summary sheet or in their electronic log file.


Certificate Program


The certificate program recognizes single-operators at the local level, and additional recognition overall in the non-single operator categories.  The following certificates will be awarded:

In addition, the contest results will recognize the top three stations (both in-state and out-of-state) ranked by the number of Michigan counties worked overall.  The top station (both in-state and out-of-state) will be awarded a certificate.


The MiQP Awards Program is supported by donations from clubs and private individuals from within the state.  Groups or individuals who wish to contribute towards the MiQP Awards Program should contact MiQP Awards Manager Mike Van Buren, WD8S at wd8s@comcast.net.
