Create artwork to showcase your love of laboratory science: a microbe, microbial colony, biochemical analyte, chemical agent, anything! Sketch, paint, sculpt, bake, knit – use any technique you like. Anyone who works for a local, state, federal or territorial public health laboratory is eligible to enter. When we say “public health laboratory,” we are including environmental health, agricultural and food safety labs too!

Send your entry to by midnight (UTC) on September 30, 2023.

  • Every entry gets a submission gift. Please include your shipping address with your submission.
  • Winners will be chosen in three categories: Most Creative, Most Realistic and Most Inspiring. These winners will receive a choice of a QIAGEN Gut Check Board Game or a T-shirt.

Share your submission on social media with the tags #ThanksPHLabs and #QIAGEN so others can see!
