We need sponsors and supporters too!

We have multiple levels of sponsorship (see Sponsorship Form below) with various advertising opportunities and recognition.

We also are in need of in kind donations. We accept anything from give away prizes to backpack goodies, from promotional products to coupons. We also accept in kind printing assistance and other contributions of time or service. If you have something to give, then we are willing to accept!
