Apply to be a DIY Kids Speaker



Do you have a skill you would love to share with other kids at the 2017 DIY Homesteader Festival?

We are currently accepting applications and want to hear from you!

Please fill out the form below, in its entirety. This form must be filled out with the consent and aid of a parent or guardian.

Note: Workshop slots will be 30 minutes each and should have some interactive or hands-on things included (for example, you could bring an animal, bring things for kids to touch, smell, taste, etc., or have the audience help make something).

Some of the ways we thank DIY Kids’ Area Workshop Leaders:

  • Complimentary one-day festival ticket for yourself if you happen to be over 12
  • Festival lunch, for yourself, on us!
  • DIY Homesteader Festival General Store Market gift certificate to spend in the market at the fest!

Note: Any parents or guardians, or siblings or friends (13+) who tag along will need a fest ticket to attend workshops. If your parent or guardian isn’t planning to attend workshops, we’ll leave your names at the gate so you can get in to teach and to enjoy the Kids’ Area. : )
