Programming Proposals

Want to run an activity? Sign up to be a panelist or activity leader using the form below. The majority of programming should be family friendly for viewing, but participation is generally geared to teens and up. PG-13 rating can be discussed as needed.

For crafts and workshops that require materials that attendees get to keep, we will cover the cost of materials within a specific budget. Please ask for more details if you are interested.

You MUST supply contact information (email preferred) or we will not be able to contact you. If you are not sure we received all your details, then e-mail us to follow up.

Panelists and activity leaders are eligible for discounts in a similar level to volunteer hours. Programming that requires advance preparation will have extra time accounted for toward your discount. You can also request to be comped a shopping pass for the day of your panel/activity instead of a discounted full access day or weekend pass. We will let you know if your proposal is eligible for a comped shopping pass on a case by case basis.
