Desk messy?

For those whose desks aren’t spotless, have we got a contest for you.

A Seattle business organization and productivity consulting firm is opening nominations for its second-annual Messiest Desk Contest.

Beginning Wednesday, local office workers are encouraged to nominate a friend, co-worker, family member, boss or themselves at www.innovativelyorganized.com. The top five messiest finalists will be announced Jan. 22 and the public can vote online for a winner between Jan. 22-26.

The messiest desk contest winner will be revealed Jan. 28. In addition to an organization overhaul from the Innovatively Organized team, a gift basket of tools and products will be awarded.

Entry forms and contest rules can be found at www.innovativelyorganized.com starting Tuesday. The winner must meet eligibility requirements.
