The ARRL schedules its annual school club roundups for October and February. This is an excellent time for licensed students in elementary, middle, high school, and college to talk with their peers around the country and possibly around the world.

The 2017 School Club Roundup runs from 1300 UTC, 13 February 2017 to 2359 UTC, 17 February 2017. Non-school clubs and individuals are encouraged to participate and earn certificates for their efforts.

The school club contest will use the following modes: CW, Phone, and RTTY/Digital.  All Amateur Radio bands can be used, except for 60 30, 17, and 12 meters.

The ARRL School Roundup fact sheets contains the following items:

New rules, online results, general guidelines, contest details, contact exchange elements, scoring procedures, suggested frequencies, logs, reporting of scores, and how to get participation certificates.

Why not “fire up” you station and give some of these young radio amateurs the benefit of your experience?  This would be a perfect time to encourage students to continue their studies and pursue international friendships.  Besides, the contest will be a lot of fun.
