Student Scavenger Contest 2009

American Fork, UT (PressExposure) October 13, 2009 -- The contest asks readers to share their original “starving student” stories of how they successfully foraged for free food. The first-prize-winner will receive a $100 restaurant gift card, a $200 Wal-Mart gift card, and a case of Top Ramen. Second place will win a Wal-Mart gift card and a case of Top Ramen. Third place gets a case of Top Ramen.

Students share their shameless experiences of getting food from Costco samples, mooching off of a girlfriend’s cooking, or eating leftovers at the restaurants they worked at.

“Ok, this is going to sound really bad… but you can get great free food from the food pantries at local churches,” said Karen Meyers, a contest entrant and a student at Southern Virginia University.

“We wanted to reward our users and have some fun in the process,” says Adam Sorensen, director of SEO at “So we created this contest where students can be a part of something, share a good laugh, and win cool stuff.”’s new College Life portal features posts, videos, podcasts, and contests about everything college life. More contests will follow on a monthly basis.

Sorensen continues, “When I was in college, I would completely run out of money by the end of the semester and all I could afford was Top Ramen…I think almost every college student can relate to that.”

The contest ends at midnight on October 31, after which a random drawing will be held to select the winners. Winners will be announced November 2. To enter the contest and see contest entries, visit:
