The Quarry Life Award is an international research competition for the promotion and education about biodiversity in quarries.  A mining site provides a great variety of landscapes and habitats that present low disturbances from human activities. These unique habitats promote exceptional local flora and fauna. HeidelbergCement through the Quarry Life Award and its projects, aims to raise the knowledge of the biological value of mining sites and contribute to further enhancing it. In more than 1000 quarries and pits worldwide HeidelbergCement is committed to managing biodiversity during and after extraction by promoting exceptional local flora and fauna. In the 3rd edition of the Quarry Life Award we continue to raise awareness of the biological value of mining sites and together finding new ways of further enhancing it.


Quarry Life Award je međunarodno istraživačko takmičenje koje se organizira radi promocije i obrazovanja o biodiverezitetu na kamenolomima.  Lokacije kamenoloma bogate su mnogostrukim pejzažima i staništima na kojima nema većih smetnji od ljudskih aktivnosti.  Ova jedinstvena staništa promoviraju izvanrednu lokalnu floru i faunu. HeidelbergCement kroz takmičenje Quarry Life Award i svoje projekte nastoji povećati znanje o biološkoj vrijednosti kamenoloma i doprinijeti povećanju te vrijednosti. U više od 1000 kamenoloma širom svijeta HeidelbergCement predano radi na upravljanju biodiverzitetom tokom i nakon ekstrakcije na način da promovira izuzetnu lokalnu floru i faunu. Kroz treću ediciju takmičenja Quarry Life Award nastavljamo širiti informiranost o biološkoj vrijednosti lokacija kamenoloma i zajedno pronalazimo nove načine za njeno poboljšanje.

SN4KIDS - Polish Hams to Help UNICEF Prevent Child Malnutrition

Warsaw 04/10/2016

The aim of the Hams4KIDS initiative is to collect funds to support UNICEF in its fight against child malnutrition.

Polish hams are setting up the Special Event Station SN4KIDS to operate between 14/10 and 13/11/2016. Every QSO made with the station will add 2 cents to the fundraising effort.


Radio Amateurs to the Rescue

Selfless support is part of ham radio culture. Regardless of the situation, such support has always been voluntary, when public communications broke down or simply was not there.

But hams have never helped like this before. The idea behind Hams4KIDS is new and unique: supporting UNICEF with funds raised using an amateur radio station.

The fundraising mechanism also requires special mention. It follows the formula known from other renowned charity events: for certain activities of the participants, the organizer - not the participants - donates an amount of money to an organization.


Hams for Kids

According to UNICEF data, 20% children in developing countries suffer from malnutrition. The worst hit regions are Southern Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa - in South Sudan alone, 50,000 children are facing imminent death from starvation.

It is the intent of the Hams4KIDS initiative to help these children in need. It will focus the collective efforts of the global radio amateur community to provide meaningful financial support to UNICEF’s anti-malnutrition program.

It will open a new chapter in the long tradition of ham radio service to humanity. Hopefully, others will follow.


The Radio Station

The initiative’s radio station - callsign SN4KIDS - will operate for one month, 14/10 – 13/11.2016, at all HF bands, as well as the 6m band on SSB, CW, and digital modes. For every unique QSO with the station, the organizers will donate 2 cents to UNICEF. So - the more such QSOs, the more funds raised. To give everyone a chance, each ham will be entitled to one communication per day at each band with all three modes (except 30m - CW/DIGI only).

Considering the number of bands and modes available, and with human capacity in mind (such as the need for sleep) it can be safely assumed that one ham will be able to make several dozen unique QSOs daily. Factoring in the station’s operating time of 30 days, it is clear how much the initiative depends on the individual activity of each amateur radio operator. 

Detailed information about the fundraising mechanism, including real-time statistics, will be available at the Hams4KIDS website, to be launched in it’s full form just before the station starts operation.

Apart from the number of QSOs, the organizers also count on other forms of support - such as promotion of the initiative and individual generosity. Should anyone be inspired to make an additional donation, they will have the opportunity to do so using UNICEF’s purposely-built web service.

To add the element of friendly competition and to inspire even more fundraising efforts, the Hams4KIDS.org website will host live ranking lists of hams with the highest number of unique communications.

Also, a special QSL card has been prepared for the occasion, and will be available through Club Log’s OQRS system. In addition, certificates will be awarded for making a certain number of QSOs, and the best of the best will be presented with special prizes.

Hams4KIDS - Additional Information

The Idea

The idea of combining passion and support was conceived by Cezary Małuj (SP5Y), CEO of a technology company by profession, and privately ham radio operator and father of three.

He first involved a group of close friends - Mariusz Wyszyński (SQ5M), Marek Suwalski (SP5LS) and Michał Misiak, who dived right in, contributing their enthusiasm and radio experience to the action.

Inspired by the idea, new people have been joining Hams4KIDS - technicians, radio operators, promotion specialists. Not all of them are hams, but all help as best they can with their skills and abilities.

The president of the Polish Amateur Radio Union has assumed honorary sponsorship of the initiative.

 For more info about the organizers, visit www.hams4kids.org, which will be available in its final form just before the launch of the radio station.
