The Show-Me STATE GAMES are THE LARGEST STATE GAMES IN THE NATION. One key reason to our success as the largest games event is our outstanding volunteers who dedicate their time and energy in making the Games run so smoothly!

We anticipate thousands of athletes from across Missouri along with their families and friends to descend upon Columbia for the 39th Annual Show-Me STATE GAMES! Our participants are always impressed with the warm hospitality and strong sense of community spirit that Mid-Missouri has to offer. Our Volunteers help make Central Missouri a great place to host the Games.

Sign up to volunteer and enjoy the many activities that will be taking place during the Show-Me STATE GAMES (June 8-11, July 21-23 and 28-30).

On behalf of everyone associated with the Show-Me STATE GAMES, please accept our heartfelt “THANK YOU” for the many, many hours you give during the three weekends of the GAMES. Your enthusiasm and courtesy provide a rewarding experience for all our athletes, their families and friends!

If you have 12 or more volunteers from your business or group (can also include family and friends), then be sure to take advantage of our Corporate Volunteer Program. This is a unique program that gives local businesses and organizations an opportunity to get involved in the Show-Me State Games. We invite you to share with us in the fun and competitive excitement only the GAMES can provide.

If you have any questions regarding individual volunteering, group volunteering or your specific volunteer assignment, please reach out to the Show-Me State Games Volunteer Coordinator.
