2014 Volunteer Information

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Science Olympiad!

Online Volunteer Registration is Currently Closed!  If you would like to volunteer, please come to a volunteer check in desk in Padnos or the Fieldhouse to complete the registration on the day of the event.  Don't forget to bring your ID!

The Regional Tournament will be held Saturday, March 29, 2014 on the GVSU Allendale campus.  We are in need of approximately 300 volunteers to help with one of the largest regional tournaments in the nation.

All volunteers must register online.  Please read the following information and then follow the links below to register.

1)  Volunteers are needed in shifts from 7:30am until 4:30pm.  You may sign up for part of the day or all day.

2)  All volunteers need to register by March 7.  You will be notified by email of your assignment approximately one to two weeks before the tournament.

3) Some volunteer positions involve helping with specific events.  Other assignments include general tasks - information booths, check in table attendees, and impound. Please understand that there are no guarantees for requested assignments.

4)  All volunteer positions must be filled and are crucial to the success of the tournament.  If you are unable to fulfill your commitment we need you to find a replacement.

5) Since volunteers will be working with minors, we need to perform a criminal background check to ensure the safety of the children.  You will be asked to give your driver's license number and your consent for the check. 

Volunteers from K-12 Schools and Community (Not GVSU students)
In order to have enough volunteers for the tournament, each school needs to provide at least 3 volunteers (other than a coach).  Only adults may volunteer.  Please click here to register.  Thank you!
