Volunteer Opportunities for Sea Lion Bowl

Volunteer Opportunities for the 2012 Sea Lion Bowl
Calling all ocean enthusiasts!  Motivated northern California high
school students need your support to achieve ocean literacy. The Sea
Lion Bowl, a regional competition for the National Ocean Sciences
Bowl, will be hosting about 100 high school students and their coaches
in an all day competition at San Francisco State University on
Saturday, March 3, 2012.  Teams of four students and one alternate
will be coming from schools in many locations around Northern
California to compete.  In order to have the competition run smoothly,
60-70 trained volunteers are needed.

There are a number of volunteer positions:

Moderator reads questions and keeps the competition running smoothly), Science Judge (addresses
any challenges to the content of the questions and answers), Rules
Judge (overseer of competition rules), Score Keeper, Time Keeper,
Runner, Question Graders, Set-up and Clean-up and help during the
training sessions. For information on the different roles for
officials, go to
