We received one comment. The commenter states that contests should be targeted to specific consumer segments, eligibility requirements should be indicated in the rules, and that online communities geared toward problem solving should be engaged to provide solutions. The CPSC contests that are directed toward raising awareness are targeted at relevant populations. For example, the poster contest to raise awareness on carbon monoxide poisoning was directed towards children and their families. In addition, consistent with the commenter's recommendation, CPSC contest materials and the related rules have listed applicable eligibility requirements. Finally, online problem solving communities are not precluded from entering contests open to the general public. Thus, we believe that CPSC's contests are consistent with the commenter's objectives.
