Fuel your passions with Starbucks … and you could win a scholarship!

Last month, we told you that Starbucks is sponsoring Dad 2.0, but we haven’t begun to tell you all the cool stuff they have planned. As you’d expect, there will be plenty of free coffee—including the delicious new VIA Lattes—on hand at the Starbucks Station right across from the main ballroom. These folks know conferences like ours are all about pacing yourself, and staying fueled for all the amazing activity.But there’s so much more.

On Thursday afternoon, Starbucks has organized an hour-long photo-walking tour of the French Quarter, in association with the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau! So if you get in early, up to 25 can join an expert tour guide to explore our amazing host city before the Welcome Party later that evening.

And during the conference, Starbucks has an extra special treat in mind—a contest to fuel our passions as well as our bodies:

  • At any point on Thursday or Friday, whether you’re at the conference or out on the town, tweet or Instagram a photo of yourself going on a #StarbucksRun with a VIA Latte.
  • Be sure to include an image or mention of VIA Latte in your post, and reference both the @Starbucks name and #StarbucksRun hashtag.
  • Post your photo by Saturday, February 1, 2014, at 12:00 am CST.
After that, this contest has a Bang and a Boom. If you stop by the Starbucks Station and show them your entry, you’ll get a $5 Starbucks gift card. (Bang!)But one winning entry, to be announced at the co-sponsored breakfast on Saturday morning, will win a $500 Writer’s Grant, toward keeping your killer content flowing … and subsidized! (BOOM!)

We’re glad to have such an esteemed brand as Starbucks on board to support dads. As you’ll see at Dad 2.0, they stand for so much more than a mere hot cup of Joe.
