Volunteer’s Needed!

A few of our events really need additional volunteers, especially judges!

There is no experience needed to volunteer! All we ask is that it is at an event different than the one your team is attending! So, if your team is attending the Everett event on Saturday, why not sign up to volunteer to judge in Everett on Sunday!

If you have questions, or would like more information, please email Mara Kealey marak@firstwa.org
