Penn Labs Freezer Challenge

The Penn Labs Freezer Challenge is designed to promote best practices in cold storage management. The Freezer Challenge covers all forms of cold storage, including refrigerators, freezers, and cold rooms. Labs participating in the challenge will be asked to submit an online score sheet. Sign-ups are accepted on a rolling basis. The challenge officially starts January 1, 2022, and we are hoping to have labs signed up by January 15, 2022. The challenge will wrap up on April 15, 2022. First, second, and third place winners will be awarded prizes at the celebratory end-of-challenge party where drinks and snacks will be served!

We also encourage you to enter the International Freezer Challenge. Awards for the international challenge includes financial incentives, a stipend to attend the I2SL conference ( and recognition in the journal Nature.
