Meanwhile, the national office of the Cult Awareness Network reports that "a Scientology front group called the Concerned Businessmen's Association is sponsoring a Set a Good Example contest aimed at schools and youth groups, which centers around a booklet titled The Way to Happiness by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard." (Many Clearwater residents have been sent that booklet in the mail.)

When a similar contest was conducted in England, children were required to read the booklet and then carry out a project that sets a good example. The London Daily Mail reported that "several civic leaders who had initially endorsed the contest withdrew their support upon learning of the connection to Scientology."
