Wicked West Expo 2022 – IT’S HAPPENING!

Wicked West Expo is finally happening! Originally planned for 2020, the Expo was delayed due to COVID-19.

Nick and the Awesome in Action team are so excited to share that Nick will have a booth both days of the event and a panel on Sunday, time to be announced. Nick’s panel is called Anyone Can Be a Hero and features Nick sharing some of his strengths and helping the audience find their inner superpowers!

The Expo takes place from 10:00AM to 6:00PM on April 2nd and 3rd. The Expo will be in the First National Bank Building at the Ranch Events Complex.

It would mean so much to Nick and the team if his community could come support him at Wicked West! As we transition back into in person opportunities, the nerves are running high but so is the excitement. We are pumped to be part of this fun filled event.

Use it as an excuse to dress up as your favorite character, bring the kids, and check out some amazing exhibitors.

You do need to purchase tickets for the event, they are $15 for ages 12 and up, and $5 for ages 11 and under. The ticket covers access to both days of the events. You can purchase tickets by clicking this link.

You never know who you’ll meet at Comic Con!

Fort Collins Comic Con 2019

Nick met his twin at Comic Con!

On August 17th and 18th Nick and the Awesome in Action team participated in Fort Collins Comic Con for the 3rd year.

This awesome event brings creative people from the community together to share ideas and creations with participants.

Nick and Nick! Nick Armstrong heads Fort Collins Comic Con every year!

Nick’s booth was used to show that anyone can be a hero. Nick helped kids make awesome superhero masks and posed for pictures. Nick made sure to help everyone who visited his booth understand that they have superpowers that make them special.

Nick and Oakland are superheroes together!

Nick really enjoyed seeing all the creative and fun costumes and getting to dress up himself! Some of the costumes were scary, but Nick showed his superpowers by keeping calm, cool, and collected when something scary walked by his booth!

Nick’s booth was really fun and interactive!

Nick presented a panel on Saturday, where he gave his Anyone Can Be a Hero speech. He talked about his struggles and challenges as a person living with Cerebral Palsy, and how he overcomes his challenges and finds his inner superhero.

Nick’s panel offered a new view on being a superhero.

The organizers of Comic Con have always been kind and welcoming to Nick and his team, and helped make the Con as successful as possible for Nick. Nick had so much help and support to make this event a success and he wants to send a special thank you to his team, the Comic Con team and Nick Armstrong, and Annie Schubert who helped Nick with his panel.

Nick and Annie are pretty super!

The impact Nick made on those who stopped by his booth was pretty clear, and Nick was happy to make some really great connections with others in his community who want to help spread his message.

Rocio, Nick, and Liz look pretty cool together!

Comic Con was a success again this year, and Nick is excited and ready to start presenting in classrooms for the school year.

Nick made some new friends and saw some old ones too! Nick and Batman go way back.

If you or someone you know is interested in having Nick come to your classroom or event to offer one of his many presentations, please contact him via email at nick@awesomeinaction.org.

Nick’s presentations can be adapted to any situation and age group, and his message of inclusion and diversity is appropriate for all ages.

THANK YOU!
