Calling All Local Businesses!

A Message from Okoboji High School Principal:

Okoboji Area Businesses,
I hope all is well!  Even though our thermometers may not be showing it quite yet, we all know summer is coming and I am sure you are already gearing up for what will certainly be a huge Okoboji summer in 2021!  We at Okoboji High School have long enjoyed the wonderful relationship we have with our area businesses and employers and are so grateful for the life skills our students learn from working in our area businesses.  The skills of time management, scheduling, teamwork, and personal responsibility take on a whole new meaning as students develop and apply them in your stores, restaurants, and businesses.  Several years ago we worked to establish a Summer Job Fair to connect students with potential employers who are looking for great help in the summer and beyond.  Each year this event has proven to be beneficial for the school, students, and businesses.  We were within days of the event last year when it had to be canceled due to COVID and we are excited to announce the Okoboji Summer Job Fair is BACK for 2021!
We are planning to hold the fair in the historic Roof Garden at Arnolds Park.  We are excited to again work with Marshall and the staff at the park and appreciate their generosity in allowing us to use this amazing venue.  This year we plan to run the fair from 8:30-11:15 on Friday, April 9th.
We would LOVE to have your business/organization represented at the fair.  Please use THIS FORM to communicate your interest in participating and sharing a few important pieces of information with us.  The survey should take less than five minutes total.  If you have any questions about the event please feel free to contact me by email ( or phone 319.855.7007.
Thank you again for all you do for our students, school, and community and we look forward to our continued partnership!
