Volunteers can work for the whole day (7:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.), take a morning shift (7:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.), or take an evening shift (1:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.).

Contact Renee Gingery by email (regingery@spartanpride.net) or by phone (319- 824-5449). 2. Go to the Iowa Academic Decathlon website and go to the Volunteer Opportunities tab (http://www.iowaacdec.org/volunteers/volunteer-opportunities).
