Seuss-inspired pumpkins take center stage in UA Cares Pumpkin Crafting Contest
From Horton and his Whos to Willy Waterloo (and some green and blue fish, too), the world of Dr. Seuss was on display at the UA Cares Pumpkin Crafting Contest hosted by the Office of the Provost. The annual contest raises funds for the Campus Pantry.
What began as friendly competition between floors of the Administration Building has grown over the years to include submissions from across campus, said Jonathan Lazar, administrative associate with the Office of the Provost. This year's contest featured entries from UAPD, the Office of the Registrar, the College of Engineering and the School of Information.
The competition has become a signature part of UA Cares, the University's annual workplace giving campaign. This year's campaign, which began Oct. 2, has been extended to run through Nov. 10.
UA Cares is a series of University-wide initiatives that work to benefit and serve the University community. UA Cares includes a workplace giving campaign yearly food drive, employee fund, blood drives and more. During the workplace giving campaign, employees can donate to any department, college, program or initiative through the University of Arizona Foundation or to local nonprofit organizations through the United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona. Employees can make a one-time donation or set up a recurring payroll deduction through a UA Cares tile that will appear on the UAccess Employee homepage.
