Playing off the Yellow Springs News name tag promotion that starts in next week's paper, A Yellow Springs Blog will be holding a contest to see who can come up with the most creative alias and follow-up question. The rules are pretty simple: in order to be eligible, contestants must use the newspaper's official name tag as distributed by the YS News; contestants may not use their real name; only one name tag may be worn at a time, but different name tags may be worn on different days; contest is not open to staff of the Blog or Gunch Press, their relatives or pets, however, employees of the News are eligible. The contest will run during the one-week period specified in the YS News for the wearing of the name tags, starting with the June 30 issue.
Agents of the Blog will be combing the streets with their cameras, taking photos of contestants and their name tags. A panel comprised of the usual Blog suspects will do the judging. The winner will be announced on the Blog on or about Bastille Day (July 14) and will receive a prize of $20. Check the Blog regularly for rules changes or other random silliness.
My dog barked for joy when she heard about the name tags. Let's have some fun and sell some newspapers. And remember, judges of the Fun City contest may be in town, so put your best name tag forward.
