2020 NOSB Shore Bowl Volunteer Sign Up!!
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Shore Bowl this year!
The Shore Bowl at Rutgers University is one of the 25 regional competitions of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB). The NOSB aims to encourage the next generation of ocean scientists, educators, policy-makers and stewards. High school teams from NJ and PA will battle it out in a fun quiz-style competition focused on ocean science and other ocean-related topics. The winning team will represent our region at the NOSB finals.
The Shore Bowl will be held at the Cook Student Center at Rutgers University on February 1, 2020. The event will run from 7am to 5pm. I would welcome anyone who is willing to help prepare for the teams to arrive at 6:30 am and anyone willing to help clean up from 5 to 6 pm. We are strongly encouraging that volunteers for the event day do their best to be available for the entirety of the event. Preference for some volunteer positions will be given to those with all day availability.
THERE IS A MANDATORY TRAINING SESSION FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS unless you are exclusively a set up or break down volunteer.
