For those near Atalanta GA, if you know of anyone who would like to
volunteer, please contact Mischa directly by clicking on her name below.
We are a little behind the 8 ball getting this invite out this year. We need
all types of volunteers! The LEGO part of the Championship event runs from
check in Wednesday to Awards on Friday night, April 16-18. If you know for sure
that you can commit to Wed pm, Thur and Friday all day then please let me know
if you’d consider volunteering in a judging capacity. You will still need to go
into VIMS as outlined below to get registered and go through the background
check process but it will help me know to track your registration and that you
are definitely available!
If you know of others from energy or other coporate industries that would be
interested in donating their time please let me know that as well. We’d like to
give them the VIP treatment.
Another HUGE need we have is for translators….almost all a languages. There
will be 84 teams at the LEGO World Festival event with only about 35 of those
from the US. This is also the 10th anniversary for LEGO League. There are some
special appearances planned….I know that the astronaut that helped plan the
first Challenge will be speaking and there will be a HUGE public LEGO building
project that will be donated for display somewhere in GA after the event. So
come join the fun from the inside!
Please forward this info to any appropriate groups that can help.
