HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. — OFM, one of the nation’s leading office and school furniture manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers, announced today it is launching a contest from August 1-September 22, 2011 to encourage workers to take time off from work. Playing off the classic homework assignment, the “How I Spent My Summer Vacation” contest asks American workers to share their stories of traveling, spending time with family and friends, or heading to the great outdoors.

“At OFM, we fundamentally believe when employees take vacation and time off from work they are more productive in the workplace when they return,” said Blake Zalcberg, chief operating officer of OFM. “This is a contest to showcase the amazing places people go and the things they do when they take a break from their day-to-day work.”

The winner of the contest will receive two of OFM’s NET Series indoor/outdoor chairs and a matching table to spruce up their outdoor space. To enter, contestants must take a photo illustrating their vacation or event and email it along with a 250-word essay about their experience to summmer11@ofminc.com. They must also become a fan of OFM on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ofminc. The contest is open to any U.S. citizen who is 18 years of age or older.

“Summer vacation keeps American businesses running all year long,” adds Zalcberg. “Workers who take time off in the summer are happier, healthier, and more productive the rest of the year. We want this contest to help remind everyone of the importance of spending some time with their families and doing what they love to do.”
