YOVASO is excited to announce the winners of the 2023 Jingle Your Way to a Safe Holiday: Buckle Up and Celebrate Responsibly Contest! Scroll down to view the winners or check out the contest landing page at the link above!
This contest is an educational and fun initiative for Virginia high and middle school-age students to promote safe and responsible driving throughout the high-risk holiday season. The goal of the contest is to encourage buckling up and celebrating and driving safely during the period from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. As part of the contest, students will compete individually or in groups by creating a safe driving jingle (short song or tune) that promotes a seat belt and/or safe driving message for the teen audience.
Schools and youth groups that participate may also register for posters, vinyl banners, winter driving tip cards, and mini ice scrapers to promote the contest and driver/passenger safety throughout the holiday season!
Registration for this campaign is closed and will reopen in November 2024! Contest dates and other details will be made available later this year.
The jingle entries should be submitted in video format to YOVASO and must incorporate a creative seat belt and/or safe driving message related to the contest theme. The top six jingles in both the high and middle school division, as selected by YOVASO staff, will be shared on the Holiday Contest Page (and social media) for public voting in December. The overall winning jingle in both divisions will then be shared on social media to remind students to buckle up and drive safely throughout the holiday season. Prizes funded by State Farm are awarded to the top three winning jingles in the middle and high school divisions.
Students who submit a jingle entry to YOVASO will be asked to share their jingle on their personal social media pages, include #SafeHoliday23, and tag YOVASO.
