Meet the Winners of the 2023 Pilot Your Own Adventure Contest


Shelbe Jarrett - 2023 PYOA contest winner

Grand Prize Winner – Shelbe Jarrett

Based on the enthusiasm from last year, we weren’t surprised to get a lot of entries for EAA’s Pilot Your Own Adventure Contest, supported by Flight Outfitters. Our panel of judges carefully read all the stories and, while it was an extremely close race, ultimately chose five winners. You’ll be able to read their stories in July, as we will publish them, both online and in the daily AirVenture Today newspaper, during this year’s AirVenture.

This year’s winners are:

Grand Prize:
Shelbe Jarrett, EAA 1480861; New Alexandria, Pennsylvania
Story: What If?

Second Prize:
Donna Miller, EAA Lifetime 881630; Golden, Colorado
