you this cold one 'cause you look really hot." Prizes for winning entries

Panama City for a week in 2009.
Pentel of America, http://www.pentel.com, a leading provider of writing
instruments, office products, and art materials, wants to hear your
"Smoothest Line." The contest was born out of the idea that the Pentel
HyperG pen is one of the smoothest writing pens on the market.
A panel of judges will review the videos and the selected videos will
move to the next round until the finalists are chosen. Peers will also have
the opportunity to vote for their favorite "Smoothest Line." Participants
aged 18 and older can upload their own smoothest line to a dedicated
website beginning August 15. Go to http://www.yoursmoothestline.com to
access "The Smoothest Line" contest site**.
Perfect for taking notes in class, or writing a "smooth-line" note to
pass to that favorite person during class, the HyperG pen uses
high-performance archival-quality gel ink that makes it write smoothly.

it's a pen, highlighter, or marker," said De Verges Jones, Director of
Marketing for Pentel. "The HyperG pen, known for its smooth writing style,
is also known as a pen that won't hurt the environment. It's made from
recycled plastic but it's also refillable so the user can keep the pen and
it won't end up in the landfill. It's an easy way to go green at school!"

environmentally friendly benefit. The HyperG is made from 57% Recycled
