The holiday cards displayed along the Penn College mall were lighted Wednesday evening in a seasonal ceremony that included the announcement of winning entries, as well as a cookies-and-crafts attraction inside the Breuder Advanced Technology & Health Sciences Center. Women in Construction finished first among student organizations in the card competition, enriching its club account by $200. The Occupational Therapy Assistant Club was second ($150) and Cru, third ($100). Among campus offices and departments, first prize went to the Veterans and Military Resource Center, participants from which will be treated to lunch at Le Jeune Chef. Madigan Library claimed second place and Dining Services finished third; representatives from each of those winning groups will enjoy breakfast at the restaurant. Winners were chosen through online voting by 612 employees and students.
