ICTM State Math Finals - Volunteers Needed!
Saturday, May 7th | UIUC Main Quad
Over 3000 high school students from across Illinois participate in the state math competition, and they need many volunteers for jobs such as ushering, grading, assistants to the directors, moving exam boxes, data entry, setting up awards, clean up, etc. Most jobs are short and need little or no training. They also need a few graduate students to act as judges for the Orals Competition.
If you are interested, please check out the volunteer webpage for a list of the jobs and times.
