How do you join?: Interested in participating? All you need to do is email the Paneling Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your full name, cell phone number, which of the four songs you plan to do, if you would like the karaoke version or the normal version and what you would like your stage name to be/ introduction you would like during the contest (yes, you can script out a paragraph!).

Hello AnimeIowa Congoers!
The AnimeIowa Paneling Team would like to thank everyone for their panel submissions for 2015. We had many fantastic panels submitted to us this year. In fact, for one of the first times, we had so many panels submitted that we did not have the paneling space for all of them! We truly appreciate everyone’s time and effort in coming up with these fantastic panels. You all truly make the convention what it is. We would like to remind our wonderful panelists to check the forums for your panel check in times as well as the awesome new perks we have prepared for you. Also keep your eyes pealed for new big events for AnimeIowa 2015!
Once again, thank you all for your submissions. We look forward to seeing all of you at AnimeIowa 2015 and making this year the best year yet!

Child Rate for Registration
Did you know that a child badge has a lower rate this year? That’s right! Whether pre-reg or at the convention, a child badge is only $35 for ages 6-12.
Spot the Ninja
Spot the Ninja is a hotel-wide activity that Family Programming will be hosting this year. We will have small decals of ninjas up around the hotel. Prizes will be given out to families who can spot the ninjas! Prize levels will depend on the number of ninja decals they find. Others are welcome to participate as well and will receive a sticker for their participation.
