News and Social Media Crew Needed

November 29, 2018

Gain valuable, hands-on experience with WGI!

WGI is looking for News Crew and Social Media Crew Members to help us cover 2019 Regionals!

These are volunteer positions, but are a great way to help you gain valuable video and communications/social media marketing experience. Crew members must have their own equipment (camera for News Crew; phone with internet access for Social Media Crew).

Check out the dates and locations below that still need coverage and contact us if you are interested.


News Crew Overview:

News Crew volunteers will get the experience of capturing up close and personal footage of the exciting WGI activity.  News Crew members will shoot footage from a regional competition and create a short highlight montage featuring the action from the WGI regional.

Requirements: Must have access to video equipment and editing software.  Must be 18+ or accompanied by an adult.

Social Media Crew Overview:

Social Media Crew volunteers will help us get the word out about each of our regional events in real time across WGI’s social media channels. As a part of the WGI Social Media Crew, you will work from your personal mobile phone or tablet, capturing events and creating posts during the event on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and/or Snapchat.

Requirements: Must be proficient in the social media platforms listed above. Applicants pursuing a degree in public relations, communications or marketing are preferred, but not required. Must be 18+ to apply.
