Livescribe to Award Over $10K in Scholarships and Pulse Smartpens to College Students

Winners Will Be Selected Based on Their 140-Character Statement on Facebook

OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2009) - Livescribe Inc. ( is offering an easy and fun way for students to win over $10,000 in scholarships and Pulse smartpens with a Facebook application called "Where are you going to college?"

The "Where are you going to college?" application is an interactive map that allows Facebook users to see who is going to their college, and what schools their friends are going to. Students can apply for the scholarship by putting their college on the map and writing a 140-character statement on how they will make their mark in college. Students can submit their witty story or personal aspiration for a chance to win a college scholarship and Pulse smartpen at:

In addition, the college with the most students on the map will win a campus giveaway of up to 200 Pulse smartpens from Livescribe.

The Pulse smartpen is a computer in a pen that captures notes and simultaneously records and links the audio to the notes. College students can record their professor's lecture while taking notes in class, and tap on their notes to play back what the professor said at the exact moment in time. Over 30 percent of Pulse smartpen owners are college students who frequently use their Pulse to take class notes and to review their notes and recordings for mid-terms and finals.

"My Pulse smartpen has been invaluable to me in my classes, particularly my pre-med classes, where I need to take very detailed and accurate notes," said Kal Shah, a junior at University of California, Berkeley. "With my Pulse smartpen, I can pay more attention to what my professor is actually saying rather than scribbling down every single word. It's also awesome to use when I'm studying for tests."
