Back2School Social Contest from Digi-Key Offers Higher Education Students a Chance to Win an InstaLab

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Back2School social media contest being run by Digi-Key
Electronics, a global electronic components distributor, is offering
students in the US and Canada a chance to win a Digi-Key InstaLab kit
and other prizes. Students with a valid university or college email
address can enter by visiting Digi-Key’s official Back2School

“Digi-Key is very excited about this new academic year as students at
colleges and universities in North America will learn valuable design
skills and offer great new innovative ideas that will positively impact
and benefit humanity in a number of ways,” added Bob Brown, Director of
Academic Business Development. “We are dedicated to helping students
bring their ideas and concepts to life and contribute to their success.
We are pleased to offer this drawing for an InstaLab and other design
tools to students who will be able to take advantage of them for years
to come.”

The InstaLab was created with the intention of providing enough gear to
turn an electronics student’s dorm room into their own maker space. The
kit includes over 20 different products from many of Digi-Key’s trusted
supplier partners.

“Digi-Key is a strong supporter of students in their pursuit of science,
technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education,” said Dave Doherty,

necessary tools they need to design and create technologies that will
significantly impact our connected world.”

The Back2School contest features three tiers of prizes including
Digi-Key “swag” backpacks, educational kits that feature dev boards, and
one InstaLab kit. Participants have from September 6-30 to register with
the winners being announced the week of October 3rd. Official
