Monthly Drawing

As part of the recognition of University Staff via the Thank a Blugold website, the Employee Appreciation Committee draws the name of one University Staff member each month. This person receives special recognition, including a prize package donated by local businesses and organizations. To be eligible, one must be a University Staff member recognized through the Thank a Blugold website.

Due to COVID, no prizes were distributed from March 2020 to March 2022. All University Staff members nominated within this timeframe were eligible for the April 2022 prize drawing. Beginning in May 2022, nominated University Staff members will be eligible for the prize drawing for one year from the date of their nomination. Prize winners will not be eligible to win again for one year from the month their name was drawn.
