30 Scouts Participate in the Radio Day Merit Badge Event

​​On April 3rd, 30 scouts from around the council gathered to participate in Radio Day. This event, planned and hosted by the Northern Star Council Venturing Officers Association (VOA), was a fun day where youth got to learn about Amateur Radio, work on the Radio Merit Badge, and talk to other people via radio!

Scouts also got the opportunity to operate inside the Hennepin County Emergency Management Emergency Communications trailer and learn from disaster communications volunteers. This event was planned and led by the VOA Vice President of Communication, Jacob Johnson.

This event was such a success that plans are underway for a similar event in the fall.

Stay tuned for more information!
