Virtual Awards Ceremony

The week kicks off with the Staff Recognition Week Award Ceremony where we honor outstanding staff members who have won Staff Recognition Week awards and we celebrate staff members celebrating milestone anniversaries. Our virtual ceremony will be available at 10am Monday, May 17th. View the complete list of 2021 Service Award Recipients here.

 

Scavenger Hunt

Did you know the entire MU campus is designated a botanic garden? Our Scavenger Hunt is your opportunity to get out and enjoy the beauty of campus by following clues that will take you on a walking tour of Mizzou Botanic Garden’s 18 “Gardens of Interest”. A map and a Scavenger Hunt clue sheet are available on MUBG’s website. You many fill out the clue sheet electronically and submit your answers online here or print it off and, once completed, turn it in at 109G Whitten Hall. Entry deadline is Thursday, May 20th at 4:00 p.m. Participants will be entered to win door prizes. Good luck!

 

Virtual Cook Along

Chef Eric Cartwright will virtually lead an interactive cooking demonstration/cook-along for MU staff members (registration required). Participants will receive a shopping list, recipe, and Zoom link in advance of the event.  On the night of the event, registered participants will connect via Zoom to create Chicken Burrito Bowls by Chef Cartwright.  Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the Chef as they prepare their dish from the privacy and comfort of their own kitchen. Participants will be entered to win door prizes.
