Awana Games Partial Team
What is a partial team? Individual registrations will be accepted for AwanaGames. If you don't have enough for a full team, but have students that want to participate, SIGN THEM UP! There will be a separate division for these combined teams. This will allow many of the smaller churches to compete in this exciting event.

The Summit contact person will be notified the week of February 12 of team placement.

Volunteer
There are many opportunities to volunteer during Summit. Contact DonnaF@awana.org for more info.
