AGCVA Members - How You Can Help

For each competition, there are materials to set up prior to the start and to clean up after it concludes.  By donating just two hours of your time, you can make a tremendous impact.

Supplies are necessary for each competition, and without them, the competition cannot take place.  If your company would like to make monetary OR material donations, please email Kirk Adams with Riddleberger Brothers.

The students are talented and passionate; attend the fair and stop by to watch one or more of the competitions take place.  You'll be impressed and inspired by what you see!  This is a great opportunity to get to know these students who are excited to begin a career in our industry.

We're also holding a 50/50 drawing each night for all attendees.  That means that by attending, you'll have a chance to win.  (Note: you must be present to win, and please bring cash to participate.)

Welcome and announcements begin at 5:00 p.m. each day and competitions start immediately after.

Students - How to Get Involved in the Competition
