Please help us with our first VEX event of 2019!

Vex IQ Robotics Competition

Hey everyone! We are holding our first VEX event of the new year, and we're looking for volunteers to help out. We really need your help to make this event successful. Volunteers have a few options about how to contribute their time, as the event will run from 7:30am to 3:30pm or 4pm.

If you cannot be available all day some volunteer shifts can be shared or are only in the morning. All volunteers are appreciated but positions will be granted first to those who can be available for at least 4 hours on the event day.

High School and Middle School Students are welcome to volunteer and can receive credit for volunteer hours.

Here is a list of the available positions and the number of volunteers we need. No experience in engineering or robotics competition is required except for the position of Technical Judge; the Technical Judge role is best filled by a robotics team member, or other tech expert.

  • Position - Number of Volunteers Needed
  • Registration desk - 2 (morning only)
  • Pit manager - 1
  • Robot Inspectors - 2 (morning only)
