Virtual EAD Activity – Virtual Selfie Bingo!

Virtual selfie bingo is back again for its third year as a virtual EAD opportunity for employees who work from home or can’t make it to the in-person event. Virtual bingo can be accessed on the Bingo tab located on the menu on the left, and will be open EAD week starting Monday, September 19 through Friday, September 23.

How to play: Each bingo square will present an opportunity to take a selfie! For example, “Take a photo with your favorite animal coworker” or “Making a U Block with Your Hands.” You will then upload the selfie to its corresponding bingo square. The goal is to get at least 5 selfie squares in a row. Anyone who submits a completed bingo card with at least 5 selfies in a row, (horizontally or vertically), will be entered into a raffle to win some University of Utah swag!

Prizes: This year’s virtual bingo prizes are presented by the Ken Garff Scholarship Club!

  • Grand Prize – 2 home game tickets to the Oregon State football game on October 1 with field club entry pre-game (you get to watch the Utes run out onto the field!)
  • 2nd Grand Prize: $100 to the Ken Garff Scholarship Club restaurant;
  • 3rd Grand Prize: $50 to the Ken Garff Scholarship Club restaurant;
  • Plus additional U of U athletics swag for 15 additional bingo participants!
