The JOTA is not a contest. The idea is not to contact as many stations as possible during the weekend. It is about Scout to Scout conversations to learn about one another and the country where they reside.

All participating groups are asked to send a report of their activities to their National JOTA-JOTI Coordinator (NJC) after the event.

NJC’s are requested to send a National JOTA-JOTI Report to the World Scout Bureau for inclusion in the World JOTA-JOTI Report.
