On Friday, November 26, and Saturday, November 27 the City of DeKalb and NIU will host eight state HS Football teams for the Illinois State Football state championships. This event brings thousands of guests and fans to the area.
The IHSA Destination DeKalb host committee is seeking assistance from the local communities, schools, groups, and organizations to welcome thousands of visitors to the NIU campus and DeKalb County in November.
The Host Director Brad Hoey has asked the community for anyone that would have time to volunteer. This is a great opportunity to give back to our community.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and cannot be a current high school student (ISHA rule). Volunteer positions include ticket scanners, ushers, parking personnel, and event staff for at least one of the three available shifts (one or both days):
8 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Noon – 4 p.m.
4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Individuals and groups that are interested in contributing to a great event that highlights NIU and the local community to students, families, and visitors from across the state can register to volunteer at ihsadestinationdekalb.com/volunteer
The online registration comes directly to ‘Bradley Hoey’ and Convocation Center event management intern ‘Marqia George’. You should receive a confirmation email once you have submitted your volunteer registration.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an opportunity to support our community and NIU. If you have any questions, please contact Michael Embrey at FunMEevents@aol.com. I have volunteered for this event for several years and it is extremely rewarding.
