Volunteers

Welcome Volunteers!

Do you live in the Washington, DC, metro area and are interested in volunteering for the 2017 National Finals on April 29, 2017 and April 30, 2017? That’s great! Please sign-up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSea6ptAVsAVM9iRyO8lt93iG-TkzTAOGnNlvzSP9xdRAvOsMg/viewformExternal link 

The NSB volunteers have been the key to the success of the National Science Bowl® for the past 26 years and we look forward to working with YOU to help make the 2017 National Science Bowl® even better!!

All ages (adults and students) and skill levels are encouraged to volunteer - students, grades 3 and higher, and student groups are welcome to volunteer for service hour credits. To prepare you for your National Science Bowl® adventure, we will hold training sessions in April 2017 at the U.S. Department of Energy.

Thanks for your interest in volunteering!
