Homecoming Office Decorating Contest Winners AnnouncedPosted Oct. 22, 2012
The Kent State University Alumni Association announced the winners of the Homecoming Office Decorating Contest on Friday, Oct. 19. Tying for first place were the Department of Recreational Services and the College of Communication and Information Dean’s Office.
“We were very impressed with all of the entries we received,” says Emily Horne, alumni relations practicum student and office decorating contest chair. “This was a fun way to motivate offices to show off their Kent State pride and spirit.”
The Department of Recreational Services took the decorating contest judges on a trip through time as staff members dressed in costumes from different time periods, used props from those eras and provided Kent State trivia relevant to the time period. The College of Communication and Information Dean’s Office treated judges to a tailgating party complete with a football field, a tent, grills, cornhole, cheerleaders and a referee.
The winners were recognized with coffee and doughnuts, as well as a trophy and plaque. Photos from the contest can be viewed on the alumni association’s website.
