MEDIA ALERT: CourseSmart and CollegeHumor Team Up to Find America's Smartest Slacker

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - January 18, 2011) -

CourseSmart and CollegeHumor are teaming up to find "America's Smartest Slacker."

CourseSmart, the largest provider of eTextbooks and digital course materials, and CollegeHumor, are looking for students who work smarter, not harder -- otherwise known as, the smartest slackers.

The contest provides students with the opportunity to submit a brief written essay about their best "slacker" story, for the chance to win $1,000, a year of free eTextbooks from CourseSmart, the reigning title of "America's Smartest Slacker," and have their story turned into an animated video on CollegeHumor.

CourseSmart and CollegeHumor will select the winning essay based on how smart and creative the academic shortcut (with big results) was and, of course, humor.

College students enrolled in an accredited university in the United States and who are 18 years of age or older.

Submissions accepted beginning on Tuesday, January 18th through Monday, February 7th.

To enter, visit and complete the entry form on the contest page with the information requested and follow the online instructions to email submissions.
