Meet the 5 Finalists of the Workplace Makeover Contest


After deliberating on over 100 entries, we have five finalists for the Daily Herald’s Workplace Makeover contest.

In the coming weeks, Rieke Office Interiors, VIDTech and the Daily Herald will conduct site visits to gather information needed to select the Grand Prize winner. That winner will be announced March 21, and they will receive a conference room makeover valued at over $11,000.

Here’s the top five, in alphabetical order. We are so excited to be part of this contest, and we can’t wait to build the winner their new space. Best of luck to the finalists!
