Iowa State Fair

Little Hands on the Farm Volunteers

August 12th - 22nd, 2021
Des Moines, IA

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Little Hands on the Farm. This exhibit is designed for children ages 2-10 to teach them the importance of agriculture and how it affects their daily lives. Volunteers receive admission to the Fair, parking and a volunteer t-shirt for their four-hour commitment. Each group volunteering will need a group leader; this person will be the point of contact for the Fair and will receive all volunteer materials including admission tickets, parking passes and t-shirts. Those material packets will be mailed beginning in mid-July.

To help safeguard all persons in attendance to the Iowa State Fair and pursuant to Iowa law (Iowa Sex Offender Registry 692A.113), the Iowa State Fair will be conducting background checks on all volunteers 18 and older. Information obtained will be handled by the Iowa State Fair in a confidential matter.

If you have any questions, please contact Emily Wynn at 515-401-1544 or ewynn@iowastatefair.org.

I hereby give my permission for the Iowa State Fair and its agents to obtain information relating to my criminal history pursuant to Iowa law (Iowa Sex Offender Registry 692A.113).

I hereby release and hold harmless the State of Iowa, the Iowa State Fair Authority; the Iowa State Fair Board; and their agents, officers and employees from any responsibility whatsoever against any and all causes of action, liabilities, and claims resulting from the investigation of my background in connection with my application to be a volunteer.
