12 Days of Christmas Culture Contest

Tis the season! Thanksgiving is behind us and the air is filled with holiday cheer, fresh baked goodies, and of course, bacteria. We want to celebrate the holidays with you and what better way than a good old fashioned contest.

We invite you to participate in our 12 Days of Christmas Culture Contest! Gather your favorite loops and cultures, and perhaps a cup of cocoa or two. Let your imagination fly and create some Petri plate art. A theme from your favorite childhood Christmas movie? Go ahead. An elegant menorah? Definitely!

The prizes will be plenty, including gift cards and swag bags. The main winner will be announced on the 12th and final day of the contest and will receive a grand prize: lunch for your lab, up to $500!

We will be announcing a winner each day for 12 days starting December 8th through December 23rd. Please make sure to have your submissions in by December 12th.
