LEGO World Festival Volunteers Needed

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.
