Volunteering gets you access to the section that you are volunteering in, for free!
There are volunteer opportunities in the following areas:
Stage Monitors: You will hang out with the competitors backstage and make sure everyone is on time for their performance. You’ll also be cueing the music manager, directing backstage traffic, and will have a front row (well, side view) seat to the action.
Pole Cleaners: You help keep the pole clean and fresh for every performer! Must be comfortable with climbing a 12' pole between 15-30 times in 2-4 hours. If you’re not sure if competing is for you, but still want to get onstage, this might be just the job! Pole cleaners should bring a black shirt and black shorts (shoes/boots optional) that meet PSO costume standards for coverage. We'll also give you a snazzy PSO tank to keep as a "thank you"!
Tickets & Check In: Your duties include checking in competitors as they arrive, checking and selling spectator tickets, and directing traffic around the lobby. This position is great for meeting tons of people, as everyone coming to the event starts at the registration desk.
Announcers: You'll hang out in the sound booth with our music manager, announcing the competitors and their studios as they take the stage. We provide a script for you!
Door Monitor: You will be checking hand stamps and wristbands for spectators as they enter the performance space.
