Volunteers Needed for Solar Decathlon 2013

Solar Decathlon 2013The 2013 Solar Decathlon is taking place October 3-13 at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine and they need volunteers - if you’ve got the time, this would be a great gig!

Regular readers of this blog will know that we have been actively involved with Team USC and their fluxHome entry into the competition - and things are moving along great for them.  But for the overall competition to be a success, lots of volunteers are needed and that’s where you come in.

So without further ado, here’s a word or two from the competition organizers at the U.S. Department of Energy:

The Orange County Great Park is very excited to announce volunteer opportunities with Solar Decathlon 2013 and XPO!

What:   U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon and XPO

When: Event dates are Thursday-Sunday October 3-6 and 10-13, 2013.  Volunteer opportunities range from September 22-October 17, 2013.

Where: Orange County Great Park, Irvine, CA

Experience the excitement of being an important part of the West Coast debut of the Solar Decathlon and the first-ever XPO clean, renewable and efficient energy exposition as a volunteer. Hundreds of volunteers are needed for roles that include greeters, docents, production assistants and more.

The volunteer experience promises to be unforgettable and rewarding. Volunteers will feel the passion and excitement of the 20 collegiate teams competing in Solar Decathlon 2013 and work side-by-side with event organizers as well as other volunteers from all over the United States and the world.

“I’ve been a part of several Solar Decathlon events as the volunteer coordinator and the experience is something people never forget,” said Mary-Lyn Chambers, Volunteer Manager for Solar Decathlon 2013 and XPO. “It’s why we have volunteers traveling from as far away as China and Columbia and returning to volunteer in their second or even third Solar Decathlon.”
