Volunteer at VEX Worlds 2017

Volunteer at VEX Worlds 2017

We love our VEX Robotics World Championship volunteers! Thanks again
for joining our team back in April of last year. We can’t say “thank
you” enough, and we are truly hoping you can join us again in 2017!

This season, VEX Worlds will be held April 19-25, 2017, once again in
Louisville. We have a new format this year that will make it the best
experience ever, for both participating teams and volunteers alike!
The VEX Robotics Competition and VEX U (middle/high school and
university teams) portion of the event will be held April 19-22; and
the VEX IQ Challenge (elementary/middle school teams) portion will be
held April 23-25, 2017. This format will give all teams the same
incredible experience in the main arena, and also their own
celebration parties afterwards!

For volunteers, we are happy to share some exciting improvements that
will make your experience the best it can be. The new competition
format will not only give you more choices of shifts to better fit
your schedule, but will also result in vast improvements in
registration/check-in, meals and snack breaks, and the volunteer
parking process, including electronic parking passes in advance for
those volunteering one entire day or more. Additionally, we are very
proud to announce the launch of an entirely new scheduling platform
called Shiftboard. You will now be able to request and self-schedule
volunteer shifts online, making it easy for you to select and view
your shifts from any computer or mobile device.

Please note that shifts will become available for scheduling as World
Championship gets closer. You must first register using the online
system to create an account, and then we will send you an email
notification when shifts are ready to view.

To register, please visit our VEX Worlds Volunteers page - http://www.roboticseducation.org/volunteers/vex-worlds-volunteers/ and choose the appropriate online form - you can register as an
individual or as a group if you’d like to register two or more under
the same email address.

We are in greatest need of volunteers who can help an entire day or
multiple days; however, some positions have shifts available from
4-10 hours (shifts will be posted closer to the event). Hotel and
travel information can be found in the FAQ section of the VEX Worlds
Volunteers page, or access directly on the Hotel Booking Site - http://gettravel.com/2017-vex-robotics-world-championship/ for both teams and volunteers.

If you are registering a classroom or group of volunteers, please
contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Janice Miller, at
volunteer@roboticseducation.org or call (903) 401-8065. We love
