If you would like to put your name in the hat to tell a 5-minute story, see the folks at VASA at the sales table in the back of the Auditorium. During this hour (11:30am-12:30pm), the MC will randomly pull names from the hat, offering as many as possible a chance to tell their story as we have time available.
