Every year in the biology department, the BGSA hosts a holiday door decorating contest. This year the competition was steep, with six labs throwing their hat in the ring to take home the bragging rights that come with having the best door.
The judges roamed the halls of B1, B2 and ESC yesterday morning, deliberating over who brought the goods this year. After an intense debate and much discussion, the winners were announced.
The first place prize basket was awarded to the “12 Days of Fish-mas” door created by the Swanson lab (above). This marks the second win in a row for the Swanson lab, so next year the rest of the department needs to step it up to de-throne the reigning champions.
The second place prize basket was awarded to the Rooney lab’s door (below).
The ecologists really brought the bacon this year, sweeping the coveted top two spots in the competition.
Honourable mentions go to the Rose lab (above) and the Marsden lab (below)!
The van der Meer lab also made an appearance (below), re-using their lobster from last year's contest. Santa is actually a lobster, who flies on a sleigh pulled by mice.
