Smartkit contest aims to compile new, healthy ways for students to capitalize on study sessions learning more in less time.

Boynton Beach, FL — February 22, 2007 — —, a leading website dedicated to providing studying techniques, is hosting a contest to create a compilation of study tips from its readers and help others learn how to study smarter, not harder.

“Almost all students have been forced to pull an all-nighter,” said Dr. R.L. Kaplan, Board Certified Neurologist and author of “But few realize the negative effects sleep deprivation can have on brain function the following day, decreasing the likelihood of performing well on tests.”

According to the journal, Occupational & Environmental Medicine, after 19+ hours without sleep, performance on cognitive tests reached levels equivalent to those associated with a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) of 0.1 percent. In the majority of states, a BAC of 0.08 percent is grounds for a DUI. This means that students pulling an all-nighter don’t have enough brain function to legally drive a car.

“It is important that students learn more effective and healthy study habits,” said Kaplan. “That is the goal of this contest, to educate students on a variety of ways to increase information learned while decreasing study time.”

The contest, which begins on February 22nd, allows visitors to submit their favorite study techniques with a chance to win 1 of 2 prizes donated by Hearthmath Company. The prizes include a/an:
1. emWave Machine
2. TestEdge Interactive Learning Program
