Keeney's ugly office contest

If your office always looks like a 6.8 earthquake has hit it or if it simply suffers from Ugly Office Syndrome (UOS), then you just might have a chance at winning Keeney's Office Plus first annual "Ugly Office Contest."
   Until April 9 sufferers of Ugly Office Syndrome can enter the contest by bringing a photograph of their office to any Keeney's Office Plus location, or e-mailing a photo to
   Three finalists will be chosen by a group of judges who will select the winning office based on their evaluation of the entry in three areas: degree of unpleasantness, lack of aesthetic quality and total lack of organization.
   The first prize winner will receive a $1,000 credit to use toward the office furniture. In addition, a Keeney's consultant will visit the winner to help transform their ugly office into an attractive, comfortable and productive office refuge. Second prize is a computer desk and the third place winner will receive a desk chair.
   For more information on the contest visit any Keeney's Office Plus location.
