Over the last few months, our team has really missed being all together. Virtual meetings have been a great back-up, but it’s just not the same without our typical office antics and healthy competition in games of HORSE, putt-putt, and whatever else the team seems to come up with. One of our Core Values that we operate by is “have fun,” something our team members are very good at, but as we have in all areas of our work-life since COVID-19 has reduced the amount of time we can spend together, we decided it was time to pivot and get creative. In the spirit of summer and improvisation, we present the inaugural Harker Watermelon Eating Contest *Virtual Edition.
We called on our team members, presented a few guidelines, and set them free to see who would become our 2020 champion. After a couple weeks of rigorous training, and truly years of preparation, we are proud to crown Season as the first Harker Watermelon Eating Race Champion! Other awards were presented to Tripp for second place, Buddy for Most Creative given his extremely impressive back flip, and Vinson for Most Comical.
Our team never fails to show up for any challenge at hand. We had several very impressive competitors, and can’t wait for our in-person race next summer! Start training, Harker Team!
