Our 8th annual World Maker Faire New York is on the horizon and we want YOUR help sharing the news! Sign up and join the team. It’s easy and a great way to get involved with the Faire. And to top it off, you can earn two adult Single Day Passes to World Maker Faire worth $90.00.
The last day to sign up is August 17, 2017 (spaces are limited so sign up EARLY).
Note: You must live within 200 miles of the venue to join the program (check here: https://goo.gl/G89abg). So that others may participate in the program, we are able to send one (1) packet of materials to each address; please do not sign up multiple people from the same household.
Follow these simple steps to join the team:
1. Fill out the form below and we will send you a Street Team Kit (kits go out in batches and may take up to 2 weeks to receive). Kits contain fliers, postcards, business cards, and stickers.
>>> The first packets will not be sent out until mid-August as we do not want the materials posted too early. <<<
2. Take the contents of the kit and post them in high traffic venues. Please be sure to ask for permission when appropriate, as we definitely want to respect other's property. Please read this information carefully: We expect you to share these materials and have fun with this—it DOES take a little bit of time so if you feel this isn't for you, please let someone else join instead of receiving the packet and not fulfilling the Street Team requirements.
Here are some great places to post flyers and place postcards:
Bookstores Coffee shopsCafes Toy StoresHobby Shops Craft StoresRestaurants Scrap StoresCommunity Centers Hacker SpacesTech Shops After School ProgramsGarden Centers Thrift StoresSchools Churchesand more…..
3. Snap some photos in ALL of the places you decide to post. You need a minimum of 10 different pictures from 10 different locations. Note that once you've captured your photos, be sure to document the places you've been. We want to know the details! Remember, the Street Team Kit contains a lot of materials, so the 10 pictures from 10 locations are the MINIMUM number to share. Please don't use the materials in JUST 10 locations—help spread the word!
4. Once you've documented your Street Team journey, share with your social community (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). Make sure to tag us by adding the #MFNY17 and #makerfaire. Visit http://makerfaire.com/new-york/promote/ to digitally help us spread the word! You can also download and print the pdf(s) of the official the World Maker Faire 2017 flier for your office, schools, libraries, local coffee shops, etc.
5. After sharing with your social communities, please return to https://goo.gl/t3dPx1 to submit your information and send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your pictures and stories must be submitted no later than: September 7, 2017. Please note that we have a LOT of amazing pictures and stories to review, so it may take up to 2 weeks to get your tickets. Thank you for your patience.
After you've completed these steps, and we've reviewed your hard work, we will send you a link for your two World Maker Faire Tickets.
We can't wait to see what you do! Thank you for being a part of the Street Team.
