UNI volunteers needed at the Iowa State Fair!

We need volunteers to represent UNI at the Iowa State Fair.  Sign up for a four-hour shift and join our booth in the Varied Industries Building.  We'll need current students, alumni, employees and friends to volunteer all throughout the fair, which runs August 8-18, 2024.
What's in it for me?
How about free stuff! You will receive: 
  • an admission ticket to the fair
  • an exclusive UNI shirt to wear during your shift that’s yours to keep
  • a great experience connecting with Panthers of all ages!
