An interesting press release came to my attention that talks about money and coffee giveaways to students who are looking to take a break from the end of semester stress. As one correspondant wrote, “With finals around the corner, college students are drinking coffee to stay awake for long hours of studying. Take a coffee break and enter to win a grand prize of $10,000 and weekly prizes. This money can take you away on an extravagant Spring Break, pay student loans, travel or save for your first place when you graduate.”
