Just for the health of it Photo Contest

To support the university’s commitment to a healthy workplace, the university’s Healthy Workplace Committee (HWC) will once again hold the Just for the Health of It Photo Contest.

This initiative promotes physical fitness, mental well-being and fun!

This summer, snap photos of yourself participating in any type of physical activity or mental well-being activity benefiting your health and share them with us.

This year’s theme is Ontario—Yours to Discover! Submit photos in one or more of the categories listed below, together with a caption about how your photo celebrates your discoveries in Ontario this summer. You could win a prize and be acknowledged within the university community.
