All BotsIQ competition volunteers need to register and sign up on our online volunteer website. As part of the online registration, you will complete a disclaimer consenting to our Volunteer Agreement, Event Liability Release Form, and Social Media/Photo Release Form. Copies of these forms can be found below and will be emailed to you after you confirm your volunteer registration. You do not need to print or email these forms. They are for your records.
Finally, ANYONE volunteering at our competitions, with the EXCEPTION of currently enrolled students, need to have the following free certifications/paperwork completed and on file with BotsIQ every 60 months:
- Report of criminal history from the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP)
- Child Abuse History certification from the Department of Human Services (Volunteers can request a BotsIQ payment code to ensure clearance is free by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org). You will be asked to create a Keystone ID, this is just a username so that you can login in again in the future.
- Request for fingerprint waiver (one of the two below)
Here’s a quick video to help you navigate the online clearance systems:
All necessary paperwork and clearances should be submitted to Michel Conklin at email@example.com.
