Contest: Show us your home office!

The COVID-19 pan­dem­ic has caused us all to make dras­tic changes to our lives- whether it’s prac­tic­ing social dis­tanc­ing, being a care­giv­er to chil­dren and loved ones, or find­ing ways to pass the time at home, every­one is adjust­ing to a new real­i­ty in order to stay healthy and pre­vent the spread of the virus. 

One of the biggest adjust­ments that we’ve all had to make is the change to our work­ing envi­ron­ment. With the major­i­ty of URFA mem­bers work­ing from home, we want to know how you are set­tling in and adapt­ing to work­ing at home- but we thought we would make it a lit­tle fun! 

Intro­duc­ing URFA’s Show us your work­space” con­test. It’s easy to enter- sim­ply send an email to urfa@​uregina.​ca with a pho­to of your­self in your new remote” work­space, and answer the ques­tions below to tell us a lit­tle more about your remote work­ing sit­u­a­tion! If you don’t wish to include a pho­to of your­self, you can always send us a pho­to of just your work­space, or per­haps a pho­to of your new canine and feline colleagues. 

We will share some of the entries we receive in our newslet­ter and social media pages. At the end, we will draw three win­ners to receive cof­fee and treats deliv­ered to their door from a local cof­fee shop/​bakery.

The con­test will close on Fri­day, April 17. All entries can be sent to urfa@​uregina.​ca.

We look for­ward to see­ing your entries!
