Volunteers Needed

If you are a student, faculty, staff or alum of the College and are interested in volunteering at the St. Scholastica booth, sign up will be available online at the end of April 2019. Three volunteers per shift will work four-hour shifts beginning at 9 a.m., 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. daily.

Register Now to Volunteer

The purpose of our appearance is to raise our visibility to the state-wide audience that attends the fair, some 1.8 million people.

Besides the fun of meeting many fairgoers interested in St. Scholastica, you'll get:

  • gas reimbursement up to $40
  • $10 meal reimbursement
  • two tickets to the Fair. Volunteers can use the other ticket for a guest
  • a T-shirt made for the occasion

Employees need to have permission from their supervisor or department head. 

If you're an hourly/non-exempt employee and scheduled to volunteer during your regularly scheduled work day, your travel and volunteer time equals a full regularly scheduled work day, so please don't report to work at CSS on the day you're slated to volunteer at the State Fair.

Employees who volunteer at the State Fair on labor day (September 2) will be eligible to take an alternate day off. Employees will need to coordinate with their supervisor when this alternate day will be taken. Ideally, the additional day off should be taken within the same pay period.

Have questions, comments or already signed up as a volunteer and need to make a change? Please visit our FAQs page or contact Maribeth Mark in the Marketing Department, mmark@css.edu, (218) 625-4499.
