Milwaukie, Ore. (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Local military uniform superstore, USA Military Medals, in keeping with the holiday spirit, is celebrating Halloween today, by hosting a costume contest, here, where all employees dressing in costume have the chance to win prizes.
Employees will be casting votes on their favorite outfit of the lot, ranging from bloodied zombies to an eighties era Mafioso. The participant with the most votes receives a $200 gift-card to Amazon.com, with a $50 Amazon gift-card going to the runner-up.
Known as the “busy season” at UMM with the coming holiday season and the U.S.M.C. Ball next month, ever-increasing online orders are near doubling the regular workload. Providing an event where camaraderie and competition interlace in an atypical environment, the contest allows employees to express themselves in a unique, entertaining fashion.
“Having a Halloween costume contest seems like a natural way for us to celebrate the holiday,” said Jared Zabaldo, USAMM, LLC president of business operations. USAMM owns and operates USA Military Medals along with various other military uniform e-commerce stores.
“There may only be two winners, but we think everyone who dresses up will leave in good spirits, which really helps us blow off some steam during the busy season,” said Zabaldo.
Although first of its kind, USAMM hopes to hold the affair as an annual tradition.
“Halloween really gives our employees an opportunity to let their imaginations run wild, so this would be pretty cool to do every year,” observes Zabaldo.
Voting will take place throughout the day, and the winners will be announced at the end of the work day.
