Penguicon’s success each year is due to our diverse community of volunteers that continue to give of their time and talents. There are many unique opportunities and volunteering for any amount of time is a wonderful way to give back to the community. We would love for you to join our team!

Volunteer Bash: March 25
Kick off for volunteers of Penguicon. Sign up for your volunteer shifts, play games, eat food, win prizes, socialize with other volunteers, have fun!
Besides that warm fuzzy feeling you get from helping out something that you love, although really that is pretty great, here are some of the awesome benefits that you get from volunteering your time to help keep Penguicon awesome.
You can redeem the hours you work for the following rewards:
- One Night in Penguin Pit: 2 hours
- Pre-Registration of Next Year: 8 hours
- Reimbursement of This Year’s Badge: 10 hours
When you pre-register your shifts, meaning that you sign up to volunteer before the first day of the event, we have special swag bags for you at sign-in. These are goody bags that have volunteer exclusive ribbons, buttons, your volunteer schedule, and other goodies that the volunteer chair thinks will make you smile 🙂
Our eternal thanks and gratitude that will be shown to you in the form of a volunteer only gift that you will receive when you check out after your last shift.
All volunteers should be at least 13 years of age, and anyone under 16 must bring their parent or guardian to the volunteer table with them to confirm that they know what is going on. Note: We have had several youth volunteer in the past, they are a great help!
