Kansas State Fair volunteers needed

LAWRENCE — Volunteer registration is now open for the University of Kansas booth at the Kansas State Fair, which runs Friday, Sept. 7, through Sunday, Sept. 16.
 
Volunteers are sought for shifts that run from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day. (Note: Sept. 7 is afternoon only.)  You can sign up online.
 
Volunteers would be provided a KU polo shirt, admission ticket to the fair and $10 in food vouchers.  Individuals or units would need to cover transportation costs and any hotel accommodations.
 
Human Resources has approved volunteering in the KU booth at State Fair as official work time, but your department needs to approve your participation. If you have questions about what activities are compensable for hourly staff, please contact HR.
