Condom competion

    As Natalie Pompilo at the Daily News reports, in an effort to promote condom use, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health’s Division of Disease Control is sponsoring a contest to design its prophylactic wrappers.

    “The winning design, as chosen by online voters, will adorn the wrappers of at least 500,000 condoms that the city distributes. The city hands out about 1 million free condoms each year at health clinics, schools and other locations, and it aims to double that total in 2011.”
