  1. Awards: This job would have you handing out medals to athletes while sitting at a table under an ez-up tent.  After the completion of each event you will be given a results sheet that you will file in a binder.  Athletes will identify themselves letting you know what place they came in.  After each athlete signs next to their name on the results sheet for their event you can give them their medal.
