What are you doing on Saturday?

Yes, you.

AIGA Idaho is looking for help.

They need advertising and design professionals to help review and critique student work at Boise State University this Saturday, March 7th between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The event will be held in Room 207 of the Interactive Learning Center – 2120 W University Dr, and volunteers can sign up online now.

This is a great chance to spend a few hours with some talented students (not to mention potential future employees or coworkers), and lend a helping hand to those on their way up.
