Volunteer task during the day

Select your favorite volunteer task.  Note that we ask all volunteers to be very flexible throughout the day because needs are constantly changing as the day wears on.  Expect some confusion and chaos.  If you are standing around with nothing to do, help the exhibitors or talk to some of the families.

Checkin and Registration  (volunteers, attendees, exhibitors)
Facilities (water, trash pickup, portapotties, etc)
Parking & Safety

OR this year we are trying something fun: connecting volunteers with exhibitors to build really cool hands on booths.  If you would like to work with an exhibitor, please pick a category and we will assign you to a REALLY cool exhibitor in the category.   Note: we might not have exhibitors in these categories, so bear with us if we have to change your assignment.

Example, if you select "Art", we might have you volunteer with a hands on chalk art activity in the parking lot.

Can you help an exhbitor
Let us know where you would best fit with an exibitor.  Example, Science, Animals, Cars, Airplanes, etc
