Interested? Complete an Earth Day Exhibitor Registration Form which can be returned by email or snail mail. Exhibitors are asked to either provide KALB with a door prize of value to give away or pay a $25 space fee. This requirement is optional for non-profit organizations. Additional door prizes may be given away at your exhibit, but must be given away the day of the event.
