We will continue with our annual tradition of having a Sled Decorating contest.  The contest will challenge teams to use their creativity to transform a traditional wood sled into a work of art!   Teams will have a two week period to work on their own to create their sled design.  Teams may begin assembling their sleds in Metcalf Hall at 10:00am on Thursday, December 12.  Limit of 10 teams, with a maximum of 5 employees per team.  Teams will be assigned on a first come, first served basis, so register early!
