The Wenatchee Mini Maker Faire was started in 2015 under the organization of three local students from Wenatchee High School ­ Ethan Toth, Silas Abbott, Storrie Skalisky. These three young men, along with more than 20+ students volunteered to organize and run the entire process. This was the first Mini Maker Faire in the world produced by students and has paved a way for students in other cities to follow. In 2016, a new group of students are continuing to lead the local Maker Faire. Under the mentorship of GWATA, students will lead all organizational aspects of the event. The following students volunteered to lead: Ashley Turner, Matt Springer, Karli Kuntz, Sabrina Zhu, Tammy Doan, Moses Lurbur, Theo Marshall, Sam Monson, and Vivian Noyd.
