Become a Central Illinois Regional Competition Volunteer

We are so glad that you are interested in volunteering for the Central Illinois Regional to be held at Bradley University Renaissance Coliseum, March 16-19, 2022.

Participating as an Event Volunteer is a rewarding, exciting and fun experience and we hope that you will be inspired to come back year after year!

Running a Regional Competition Event is a huge undertaking, and only possible with the hard work and efforts of our volunteer crews, who are the backbones of the success at FIRST.

There are many ways to help and we hope that you find something that interests you.  Just click on any of the volunteer positions listed for a brief description.  Some of the positions require specialized training and certification and some positions will require that you work over several days between Wednesday, March 16 and Saturday, March 19, 2022.

Also it is mandatory that all FIRST volunteers register on the Volunteer Information & Matching System (VIMS).  If you are a new FIRST Volunteer, please note the FAQ and User Guide available on the Log-In page.  This will assist you in setting up your account and working through the steps to register for our event.  Current Volunteers can simply Log in and update their information, then select Central Illinois and indicate which volunteer roles they would like to fill.  Be sure to list any allergies or dietary restrictions so we can plan for meals accordingly.

Please Note: The Child Protection Policy remains in effect this year and volunteers may be asked to undergo screening. If this applies to you, you will be directed to the Verified Volunteers website.

You are NOT required to share your Social Security number, you are NOT required to share your screening information with other agencies and you will NOT be charged for the cost of the screening.   Your name and other information MUST match the information that you put into the VIMS system.
