Reason Weekly Contest: Write a New Warning Label
Last week's winners revealed.
A San Francisco ordinance would require mandatory warnings on sugar-sweetened drinks that say: "WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay." Please come up with the next warning label San Francisco will require on an item—any item.
How to enter: Submissions should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, city, and state. This week, kindly type "WARNING" in the subject line. Entries are due by 11 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday, Aug. 17. Winners will appear Friday, Aug. 21, right here at Reason.com.
In the case of identical or similar entries, the first one received gets credit. First prize is a one-year digital subscription to Reason magazine, plus bragging rights. While we appreciate kibbitzing in the comments below, you must email your answer to enter the contest. Feel free to enter more than once, and good luck!
