Volunteer for Codename Trivia!

Facebook Twitter

01/12/2018 - 1:00 PM

We would love to welcome YOU as a Trivia Weekend 2018 volunteer!

Codename Trivia: Strategies, Secrets and Spies starts at 5 p.m. on Friday, February 16 and continues for 50-consecutive hours until 7 p.m. Sunday, February 18. We need your help to make it happen on the phone bank hotlines!

As a volunteer, you'll be interacting with more than 2,000 trivia players calling in their guesses as well as our fantastic Trivia crew! Trivia volunteers are given on site training to work the telephone hotlines, which are typically in 3-hour shifts. Overnight and early bird volunteers are truly appreciated. No need to worry, parking in lots near Stewart Hall is FREE during Trivia Weekend.

Thanks to local businesses, we provide delicious food and beverages for volunteers, including the much needed early-morning and late-night hot coffee. If you volunteer 15 hours or more, you'll earn a collectible Codename Trivia T-shirt! Anyone 12 years of age or older can volunteer.

Learn more about the experience of Trivia Weekend on our website.






We need over 40 volunteers for each hour of all 50 hours of Codename Trivia. Email to sign up or visit the KVSC Studios in the basement of Stewart Hall on the campus of St. Cloud State University during business hours to sign up for your volunteer shift today!

Welcome back!
