There are trophies to be awarded for the first place and the highest single band score in each contest. There is also a trophy for the highest combined score in all three contests. A trophy is awarded to the Phone contestant in his or her first year of phone achieving the highest score. Candidates for this trophy shall state the date of the issue of the licence on the summary sheet. A trophy is awarded to the radio amateur under the age of 26 achieving the highest score in the three contests and a trophy is awarded to the YL achieving the highest score in the three contests.
