Special Events

Special Events serve as fund raisers and friend raisers for Junior Achievement, and individual participation and company sponsorships make them successful in all respects.

If you would like to participate...in an event...as a sponsor...as an event volunteer...as a planning committee member...we would be delighted to have you on board! You can count on a high quality, well-run affair that will meet and exceed your expectations. 

Time Commitment and Responsibilities of Special Events Committee Members

Committee meetings begin a few months before the respected event and the committee meets at the Junior Achievement office about twice per month for an hour each meeting. This typically works out to be 6-8 meetings total for each event.

Committee members can do all of the following: help plan the event, design logos and t-shirts for the event, organize and gather prizes, brainstorm themes for the event, help out the day of the event, etc.

If you are interested in joining any of the event planning committees or participating in the events, please contact Heather Arnold at (319) 862-1100.
