Our fourth annual World Maker Faire New York is on the horizon, taking place on September 21 and 22 at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, and we need your help spreading the good news! Joining the Street Team is easy, fun, and a great way to get involved with the Faire. And to top it off, you can earn two adult tickets to World Maker Faire worth $70. The last day to sign up is August 12, 2013. Interested?
Head to the sign-up page and follow these simple steps:
1. Fill out the form and we’ll send you a Street Team Kit. In our Maker Faire Street Team Kit you’ll find:
25 Fliers 75 Postcards 10 Business Cards 10 Stickers 5 Buttons
2. Take your goodies and post them in high-traffic venues. Please be sure to ask for permission when appropriate, as we definitely want to respect other’s property.
Here are some great places to post fliers and place postcards: Bookstores Coffee shops Cafes Toy Stores Hobby Shops Craft Stores Restaurants Scrap Stores Community Centers Hackerspaces Tech Shops After-School Programs Garden Centers Thrift Stores Schools Churches
3. Snap photos in ALL the places you decide to post. You need a minimum of 5 different pictures from 5 different locations. Note that once you’ve captured your photos, be sure to document those places that you’ve been. We want to know the details! Remember, the Street Team Kit contains a lot of materials, so the 5 pictures from 5 locations are the minimum number to share. Please don’t use the materials in just 5 locations. Help us spread the good word!
You can get more involved on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram simply by tagging your Street Team photos using #makerfaire.
After you’ve completed these steps, and we’ve reviewed your hard work, we’ll send you a link for your two World Maker Faire New York tickets.
Thanks for helping us spread the word. We love you!
