USG announces winner of Strength Beneath the Surface contest

Chicago — USG, a leading building products company, is pleased to announce the winner of its Facebook Strength Beneath the Surface photo contest, which required contestants to submit an “on-the-job” picture of themselves and USG Tile and Flooring products.

Chad Nickless, of Signature Tile in Renton, Wash., is the Grand Prize winner of a $500 gift card with his entry titled, “Not Afraid of the Big Tiles.” The four runner-ups will each receive a $100 gift card, and all the entrants received a free t-shirt.

“Our first ever Facebook photo contest was a big hit both internally and externally,” said Steve Bjorklund, director, Tile and Flooring Installation Solutions. “It was especially inspiring to see a wide range of USG Tile and Flooring products being used on the job. At USG, we like nothing better than seeing our products put to work.”

The contest was open to professional contractors, subcontractors, do-it-yourselfers and others who are engaged in the construction or remodeling industry. The five finalists were selected from more than 25 entries based on craftsmanship, creativity and use of USG Tile and Flooring Installation Products.
