Golden Pipettes 2019

A Recap of the 2019 Golden Pipette Awards

The pomp! The circumstance! Even the steady rainfall outside could not dampen the spirits of attendees at the sixth-annual Golden Pipette Awards at the TCF Bank Stadium on Wednesday, April 17. Dozens of students, faculty and staff members donning their finest formalwear walked the maroon and gold carpet of the Indoor Club Room before settling in for an evening of fierce competition, tearful acceptance speeches, and the awarding of the highly coveted tie dye lab coat. This event, the culmination of a year's work for the CBS Student Board, recognized 33 student-nominated faculty and staff members across 11 categories ranging from Most Passionate About Subject to Best Canvas Page. Below, see the nominees and winners of this year's Golden Pipettes.
