||Every important event needs help from people who love giving their best without asking anything in return. The Athens 2004 Olympic Games succeeded partly due to the continuing efforts of thousands enthusiastic volunteers.
Here in the IOI Village we have our own group of volunteers. 50 young girls and boys who are more than happy to try and make every reasonable request happen.
You saw them waiting for you at the airport or carrying photocopies and boxes around the IOI village or counting every delegation's members in the buses or even sleeping (the first 2 days were very difficult) at the lounge in the very early morning. They are your guides and the organizing committee's best helpers.
Most of these generous youngsters are studying or are interested in informatics, as are you. Some of them were contestants at the Pan-Hellenic Competition of Informatics and are keen on participating in an international competition.
They can help you come in touch with the Greek culture and life style and are very keen on learning yours.
The organizing committee is grateful to all of them. Thank you volunteers, we couldn't make this Olympiad happen without your priceless help!
