FAQs
  • What do we win as Most Spirited Office?
    You will win undying gratitude, major props on the UWM Spirit Days website and a Pizza Shuttle Pizza Party for 20 people. You will also have a much better day.
  • Whoa, we can’t do every activity, but we’d like to participate in an activity or two.  Can we still win?
    Yes, any office that submits one entry or more will be in a drawing for the famed Panther Participation Pizza Prize.  This, as you might imagine, comes with a Pizza Shuttle Pizza Party for 20 people and a much improved day.  The Most Spirited Office winner is NOT eligible to win the Panther Participation Pizza Prize for that Spirit Day.   That would be way too many pizzas.
  • How are we notified if our office wins?
    Throughout the competition week, check spiritdays.uwm.edu to see where your office stands in the rankings. We will update point totals every weekday. The winner will be announced via spiritdays.uwm.edu by 2pm on Spirit Day!
  • Can our office win the Most Spirited Office more than once?
    Your office can be recognized as Most Spirited Office an unlimited number of times, but you can only win the Most Spirited Office Pizza Party once. If you earn the most points more than once, the Pizza Party for 20 will go to the runner up for Most Spirited Office.  Your office can still be in the drawing for Panther Participation Pizza Prize on that Spirit Day, however.
  • What if there is a tie for Most Spirited Office?
    If there is a tie in points, we will award the Most Spirited Office title to both offices.
  • Can our office win the Panther Participation Pizza Prize more than once?
    No.
  • So exactly how many pizza parties can we win?
    You can win two total.  Once for Most Spirited Office and once, if you’re selected in the drawing, for Panther Participation Pizza Prize.
  • When does the pizza come if we win?
    On Spirit Day we will come to your office with the drinks, cups and plates that you need for your party along with a very festive basket.  We will also send out a survey that you can complete to let us know what kind of pizzas you want and when.  You will have a month from Spirit Day to host your pizza party.  You’ll need to complete the survey at least 72 hours from when you want to host your party.
  • We have gluten sensitivity and other allergies in our office. What about us?
    Our pizza vendor, Pizza Shuttle, offers gluten-free options.  If you have a dairy or other allergy, we will work with you to find another suitable option.
  • Who are the judges of the competition?
    The official judges of the competition are staff here in the Alumni Association.
  • Who is sponsoring this competition?
    The UWM Alumni Association and Pizza Shuttle, who is providing the pizzas.
  • Is this a lot of fun?
    You bet!
