Join the World Maker Faire Street Team and Earn Free Tickets!

MF16_Sticker-StreetTeamCalling all World Maker Faire fans! World Maker Faire is returning to the New York Hall of Science in Queens on October 1 & 2 for its 7th annual showcase of amazing projects from engineers, hobbyists, food makers, scientists, artists, tinkerers, and inventors. Help share your excitement about the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth by spreading the word! Join our “Street Team” and market World Maker Faire to your local communities and get two Single Day Passes ($90 value!) for your hard work.

The Street Team posts fliers, stickers, and business cards in their communities to expose new people to World Maker Faire. It’s easy, fun, and can get you (and your plus one) into the Faire for free! Signing up is easy:

There are a limited number of Street Team spots — sign up early, (the FINAL DATE to sign up date is August 31!) Please be sure to read all the details and deadlines on the sign up form. We want to ensure anyone who signs up is 100% on board before reserving these limited spots – thank you.

  1. Fill out this form and we will send you a World Maker Faire New York 2016 Street Team Kit.
  1. Take your materials and post them in high traffic venues. Please be sure to ask for permission when appropriate. Ideas: Bookstores, coffee shops, makerspaces, schools, community centers … get creative!
  1. Snap photos in ALL of the places you post materials. (You’ll need a minimum of 10 different pictures from 10 different locations to qualify for the free tickets. We can tell if they are placed in just one or two locations – really, we review these!)
