Big Omaha volunteers hand out high-fives to attendees last year outside of KANEKO.

We need a lot of help to pull off Big Omaha. And we want you!

Here it is, folks. This is the official call for volunteers. We would love for you to join us, help us and attend Big Omaha for free.

Wondering who we’re looking for? We primarily reserve this position for college students who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to attend Big Omaha.

As a Big Omaha volunteer, you'll be able to attend the conference for free, however the tradeoff is contributing to the event's smooth operation. This would include tasks like taking out trash, lunch setup, selling merch, clean up from breakfast, helping SPN and KANEKO staff and other similar things. Did we mention you’ll get an awesome shirt to wear (have to wear)? There will be an opportunity to step inside the conference and hear some of our wonderful speakers, so we’ll be coordinating a rotation of tasks that will allow you to see the speakers you are interested in.

Think you qualify? Apply here.
