WeedAlert.com offers new prize for Weed-of-the-week winners
PBI/Gordon is pleased to announce something new for visitors to the WeedAlert.com Web site – the WeedAlert.com mouse pad. The new mouse pad measures 7 ½ x 8 inches, and is made of cloth with a foam backing, and will be offered as a prize to the winning guessers in the Weed-of-the-week contest. The mouse pad will replace the coffee mugs previously offered as prizes.
The Weed-of-the-week contest introduces a new weed each week to the WeedAlert.com Web site. After the contest each week, the weed is added to the site with a full description, including color picture for easy identification, germination dates and control options. The first five contestants to correctly identify the Weed-of-the-week will win the new mouse pad.
