Steelcase Worst Workspace Challenge Update

Ugh. Mardi Gras is over, but my hang over is just beginning. Lots of drunken festivities were had. You can see my photos at my Flickr page.

Anyway, quick update about The Steelcase Worst Workspace Challenge. We’ve had a lot of great entries so far and I expect they’ll keep coming—I’m sure we’ll get a flurry of them at the end of the week.

So how do you enter?

The prizes for this thing are incredible and I really couldn’t be more excited about it. The grand prize is a brand new Steelcase chair. The winner can choose either any Think chair available or any Leap chair excluding the leather ones (so basically you can pick between the black or platinum base fabric Leaps). The value of these chairs are about $900 and you can pick your covering color. I reviewed a Leap recently, and it’s pretty much the greatest thing ever.

We also have room for four runners-up. Our friends at iFrogz have provided four gift cards that will let you select an iPod case of your choosing. These cases are hot.

Now for the rules. To enter, we need pictures of the worst workspaces. This includes your desk, chair, general work environment, etc. We want to see disaster. Papers everywhere, gum stuck to stuff, coffee spilled, broken chairs, smashed desks, whatever. It needs to be Bad, with a capital B. Send your entries to contest at crunchgear dot com with the subject “Worst Workspace Challenge.”

Only original workspace pictures will be accepted. With that in mind, please submit more than one picture of your workspace. Multiple shots will help to ensure authenticity and to give us a better idea of just how bad your workspace is.

The person with the worst possible workspace will win a brand new Steelcase chair to help with lifting your blighted environment up a little. And, while an iFrogz case won’t make your workspace better, it will, at least, help you to care about your disaster a little less.

We’re going to run this one until next Monday, so get to work.
