Hilton Coliseum

IT-Olympics is in Hilton Coliseum April 27 & 28, 2012.   Open to the public and welcome volunteers.

The two-day event is not only a competition for high school students in the areas of robotics, game design and cyber defense, but also a celebration of IT in Iowa.  We plan to encircle the floor of Hilton with booths from IT companies and colleges to demonstrate that there are good IT career options available to youth in Iowa and across the nation.

If you are interested in helping with IT-Olympics, you can register as a volunteer and/or register a department or center for your free display booth on our web site.

Volunteer activities can include judging events, working the registration tables, assist venue directors, serving pizza on Friday, Rock Band and other activities.
