Union sponsors contest to help the economy

Have an idea on how to preserve the American dream? It could be worth $100,000.

A contest sponsored by the Service Employees International Union is looking for ideas that will help the economy grow, encourage existing companies to expand and create well-paying jobs. The winning idea will be worth $100,000 and two runners-up will claim a second prize of $50,000 each.

The country needs new ideas for how to strengthen its economy and compete in the fast-changing international marketplace, said SEIU President Andrew Stern. And he thinks ordinary Americans are the best people to ask for those ideas.

The contest entries should outline, in 175 words or less, a problem or issue, how it should be fixed, and how fixing it will benefit working men and women. A panel of two dozen judges includes Democrats, Republicans, economists, chief executives and interest group leaders.

Entries should be postmarked by Dec. 5, 2005, and mailed to The Best Idea Since Sliced Bread, SEIU, Fifth Floor, 1313 L St. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20005. Details of the contest are available at a special Web site set up by the sponsors: http://www.sinceslicedbread.com.
