On Monday, October 3 the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2016 will be announced. We’re always excited to learn who is chosen as the winner and to reflect on the impact such esteemed people have had on science, technology, and our everyday lives. We’re surely not the only ones for whom this is a fun spectator sport, and nothing can make it even better than a guessing contest to spice things up.
The winner will receive an out-of-the-box Eko Core digital stethoscope that we recently reviewed and really loved.
Now, onto our rules… Simply “Like” Medgadget on Facebook and leave your guess in the comments there to this post. Here’s the link…
The guess should be in the form of a name or names of the scientist(s) you believe will win the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2016, and the achievement for which they’ll be awarded. Only one guess is allowed per person and in case of multiple scientists sharing the Nobel, the person(s) whose answer is more complete will be used to select the winner. Because there’s a high chance that more than one person will guess correctly, we’ll be choosing the winner randomly from all the correct answers.
The contest is free and open to anyone with a Facebook account and, to receive the prize, lives in an area where UPS or FEDEX deliver.
Please make your submissions in the comments section of this post on Facebook by 11:59 PM Sunday, October 2 New York time (EDT). And don’t forget to “Like” our page to qualify. The winner will be announced on Friday, October 7.
