High School Students Needed To Serve in WinterFest Committee - A Great Addition To Your College Application!

Over the past two years WinterFest has evolved into a winter wonderland for families to experience a memorable time together with a way give-back to the community of Springfield Township. This year, the event is expanding to two days and will feature the winter village, food, entertainment, parade, petting zoo, hay rides and iceless ice rink, Breakfast with Santa and so much more! 


There are two major goals of WinterFest; bring the entire community together in a holiday celebration through the arts and have all of the township's public and private schools involved to showcase the talent of our area students. To meet these goals and to design a new experience on the second day of WinterFest, ArtsConnect is seeking the help of area students to serve on a student WinterFest committee. "Volunteer experience on a student committee could be a positive addition to a college application," said the Executive Director of ArtsConnect, Kimberlee Flamm. "Student input and involvement will bring new ideas to WinterFest, keeping it focused on what the community wants in a holiday experience."


The student committee meetings will held twice a month. The first meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 6 at 4:00 p.m. at the Springfield Township Community Arts Center, 9158 Winton Road. Meetings will last one-hour and will always be open to new committee members who are students of Winton Woods, Mt Healthy, Finneytown, North College Hill, Northwest, Cincinnati Public, Princeton, and St Xavier high schools. After the first meeting on March 6th, following meeting dates will be set. 


Students in the committee will work with the ArtsConnect Executive Director to recruit volunteers to work the event and student groups for the WinterFest parade. The committee will also design activities for the second day of WinterFest with the theme of "Holiday Celebrations Around the World". 


WinterFest is scheduled December 7 & 8, 2019. Sponsorships from local businesses  help make the event possible and are available. Call 522-2108 for sponsorship details. 

 

Students interested in being a part of the student committee should send an email to Artsinfo@springfieldtwp.org with their name, email address and phone number. Meeting reminders will be sent through email.
