We're so happy that the new school year is starting, we've decided to give one lucky winner a Neo smartpen to celebrate! And believe us, this pen is the smartest writing utensil out there; it converts your handwritten notes into a digital format as you write (or doodle — no judgement here!).

If you don't want to bring your phone or tablet to class with you, the pen can even store your notes for uploading later. It's a handy tool that will help make you #gladtogoback to school for another year of learning.

For a chance to win this cool gadget, just show us your favorite place to study. All you have to do is follow these two simple steps:

Neo Smartpen

  1. Take a picture of your favorite study spot. It could be a local coffee shop, the floor of your dorm room, a library, or a grassy area at the foot of an old tree.
  2. Post the picture to Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, tag Scribendi, and use the hashtag #gladtogoback.


We'll compile all the entries and randomly select a winner. Be sure to enter before September 19, 2016. Happy studying!
