(Snow date: March 18)
Sign-ups open Tuesday, February 19th 8am
Poetry Out Loud is a national poetry recitation competition for High School students. The GSAs will be helping out at the NH State Championships. The students competing on March 10 have won the contest at their local schools, and the regional semi-finals. They are vying for a spot in the national championship on April 30-May 1 in Washington, DC.
Volunteer Duties will include door greeting, seating guests, assisting student competitors, and general support services. There is one job keeping an eye on the handicap entrance, this person may sit and bring a book.
We are mostly needed at the beginning of the event to help guests find their way through the State House, and then a couple of volunteers during the first intermission to help them find the restrooms. There are a few positions that will need to be staffed for the duration, but many volunteers will be able to watch at least some of the competition.
Job assignments will happen on-site before the event begins, and we will make sure to have you switch positions during the event so that everyone who wants to can watch some of the competition, and so that you’re not stuck in one place the whole time. We all shift positions every 45 minutes to keep it fun and interesting.
The Storrs St. garage will be available if you’d like to park there, but we’ve never had trouble finding spots in the metered parking near the State House. Consider where you’d like to be walking when your shift ends at 9pm! Contact Naomi for directions to the Storrs St. garage and instructions for parking there.
