Ready, Set, Hang Those Decorations
JAG is also sponsoring a Holiday Office Door/Cubicle Decorating Contest. Prizes will be awarded for the Best Decorated, Most Original Decoration, and the Silliest. All employees, users and contractors with an office or cubicle at JLab may enter the contest (individuals and groups). To enter, you must email JAG Chair Mary Jo Bailey at mbailey@jlab.org, or call ext. 7277 by 5 p.m. Dec. 16. Include your name(s), building number and office/cube location. Judging will take place Dec. 18. Winning entries will be announced Dec. 21.
