The results are in; Atlantic BT’s Inaguaral Pumpkin Carving Contest was a great success!
Atlantic BT strives to enhance culture with various team building activities. The most recent, which closely aligned to the candy holiday that is known as All Hallows’ Eve, was a pumpkin carving contest. This being the first of its kind we weren’t sure what to expect. We knew our designers could carve a mean pumpkin but were pleasantly surprised with the originality and enthusiasm all the departments showed. We had a lot of good laughs and enjoyed reviewing each other’s work.
The rules were simple. Atlantic BT provided the pumpkin and employees brought the tools of their choice. Props could be used to help support the overall idea. Initially we did set a time limit but soon found out the task was of greater difficulty (our pumpkins were massive, gutting alone took 30 minutes) and quickly removed it. Tools used ranged from delicate clay modeling tools, pumpkin carving kits and Dremel sets to less refined Dewalt drills.
We had a great time and it truly showed in the final results.
