Reason Weekly Contest: Trigger a Campus Protest

Last week's winners revealed.



With college students debating whether "God bless you!" after a sneeze constitutes a microaggression—the jury seems to be out—come up with the next phrase to be outlawed on campus.

How to enter: Submissions should be e-mailed to contest@reason.com. Please include your name, city, and state. This week, kindly type "MICRO" in the subject line. Entries are due by 11 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday, Dec. 14. Winners will appear Dec. 18, 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!
