‘Sing It to Win It’ vaccine jingle contest opens

Be the (K-12) star in a statewide radio campaign

ENTRY DEADLINE: Tuesday, January 31, 2022

The South Carolina Department of Education and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control are teaming up to help stabilize in-person learning across the state.

Both agencies recognize that the best way to keep learning on track and students in schools is having teachers, students, parents, and administrators getting vaccinated.

The website (www.singittowinit.com) has more information, including the official rules, judging rubric and the submission form.

To get students excited and talking about the vaccine, the Sing It to Win It Vaccine Jingle contest will be open to all S.C. students (K-12) in any public, private, or online/home school. Students will be challenged to create an original :15-:30 second advertising jingle to promote vaccination in South Carolina. Entries will be judged based on originality, messaging, rhythm/flow and overall sound.

Winners of the contest will be invited to a professional recording studio to record their jingle, which will then be used in a state-wide radio campaign to promote vaccination. Additionally, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will receive a donation to support their school’s music program.

Organizers from SCDE and DHEC hope that music educators across South Carolina will use this contest to help reinforce the importance of the arts, music composition and the creative process.

Contest is running now through Monday, January 31, 2022.
