Professional Pets Contest

When one thinks of the word career they think of professionalism, which used to be another term confined to a small set of norms. We want to change that; professionalism can look very different from one person to another, so we want to give you an opportunity to share what professionalism means to you..but with a twist!

Show us professionalism with your pet!

Starting January 4th, you can submit a picture of your pet being professional. This could be of your pet dressed in work clothes, sitting in front of a computer or at a work desk. The choice is up to you on how you want to display your professional pet (finalists & contests winners will be displayed in the student newsletter, so you must be okay with this).

Submissions can be emailed to The deadline is January 11th, 2022 at 11:59pm. You can only submit one picture, however, it is okay to have multiple pets in the picture (if you participated last year, please submit a different picture).

The ASC team will review the submissions and vote on their 4 top favorites based on creativity, cuteness, silliness, and originality.

The 4 finalists will then be displayed on January 18th in our student newsletter and on our Instagram (again you must be okay with your pictures being shared with the PLU community).  PLU students will now have an opportunity to vote until January 21st. Votes will also go to the CPE email:

Votes will be tallied and we will announce the top 2 winners on Monday, January 24th. The winners receive a $25 Lute Locker gift card prize.
