#PRStudCast Episode 12.16.10

After a great holiday themed chat last night, here is the follow #PRStudCast episode! Hope you all enjoy it as you try to stay warm during the holidays. Please leave your comments and look forward to more discussions!

How would you benefit from a $200 SWAGG Scholarship?

As a special gift to our community, SWAGG, our December #PRStudChat sponsor, is offering one lucky student a $200 scholarship toward their education!

All you have to is answer the question- How would YOU benefit from a $200 SWAGG Scholarship? Books, webinars, classes, technology, conference costs… Just comment below with your answer, the name of your school and your twitter handle, no later than Friday, December 17th. We’ll be using to select the name of the winner.

Please be sure to give a shout out to #SWAGG & say thanks for taking the time to join #PRStudChat in December, while they are busily in the process of rolling out a mobile app. The app lets friends give and receive gift cards from their smart phones, cutting down on the old-school plastic giftcards — relevant considering 60 percent of Americans will ask for gift cards this year (National Retail Federation). In addition, SWAGG is giving back through its partnership with Stand Up to Cancer. Every time the app is downloaded between now and Dec. 31, 2011, SWAGG will donate $1 to Stand Up to cancer up to $125,000.  You can find SWAGG on twitter @swaggmobile and on Facebook.

Happy Holidays to all. We look forward to seeing you in 2011.
