Hello parents, coaches, and facilitators!
We will need volunteers for this year’s State Meet on April 16, and we wanted to open the opportunity to any former program participant as well as the Minnesota Honors Society students who help us every year. We’ve included the pertinent information below, and we’d appreciate it if you could help us get the word out about this need.
Middle school students across Minnesota have been practicing hard and competing since November for their chance to show their creativity, teamwork, and out-of-the-box thinking at the 2016 State Meet of US Academic Triathlon – and we need your help to make the event run smoothly.
US Academic Triathlon is an academic and creativity competition for grades 5-8. Learn more about our organization at www.usacademictriathlon.com. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and can be a former student competitor, former coach, high school student, or general volunteer. (Please note, if you coached a team this year that makes you a “current coach” rather than a “former coach” even though the regular season has ended.)
This year, our State Competition is at Cottage Grove Middle School on April 16.
Volunteer shifts needed:
9 a.m. – noon: Set Up (4 volunteers)
11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.: Refreshment Cart (6-8 volunteers)
2 – 4:30 p.m.: Skit Judges (12-16 volunteers)
4:30 – 6:00 p.m.: Tear down (4 volunteers)
Volunteers will be assigned to shifts based on first come, first serve basis. Sign up to volunteer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email address, phone number, and experience with US Academic Triathlon. Further details will be sent out via email, so including an email address is required.
