The contest, called the Office Liquidators $35,000 Office Makeover, officially begins tomorrow, with the company and its judges accepting nominations on the Office Liquidators website, The winning organization will receive $30,000 worth of furniture and design/installation services from Office Liquidators, with another four runner-up organizations each receiving $1,250 worth of furniture. Office Liquidators' sister company, Corporate Environments, will handle the design and space planning requirements for the contest.

Nominees will be judged on the basis of their devotion to ethical business practices in pursuit of the non-profit's mission, on the positive influence the organization has made on the community, and on the organization's need for efficient office space.
