Site Coordinator INFORmation


STUDENT REGISTRATION

StriveScan hosts trainings with the fair coordinators prior to the event to discuss best practices for pre-registration and on-site registration. StriveScan also provides fair coordinators with handouts to distribute to attendees. Many high schools communicate the importance of registration in their fair marketing and communications to families.

Since students register right on their phones and are instantly texted and emailed a barcode, "pre-registration" is not required. Students can simply walk into the fair, take a moment to fill out the registration form, and get scanning. No computers, printers, or advance preparation is required.

STUDENTS / PARENTS / COUNSELORS: REGISTER HERE

If you have any questions, please reach out to programming@mnacc.org.
