The votes have been cast, and the team taking the title of first place in the Scale Back Alabama Most Creative Team Name Contest is “Baby Got Back No Mo!”. A panel of statewide media judges selected ten names from nearly 7,000 statewide. Those ten were then placed on the Scale Back Alabama website to be voted on by the public March 8-18. Taking second place honors was “We are never, ever, ever, getting fat together!”. Prizes include $100 each for members of the first-place team and $50 each for the second-place team members.
