Jingle Contest

Calling All Creative 6th, 7th and 8th Graders and Teachers:

There’s Still Time to Enter Essity’s Jammin’ Jingle Contest for Middle Schoolers—Deadline Extended to February 25!

Enter Essity’s Jammin’ Jingle Challenge for the Chance to Win Great Prizes

Jingles are memorable, aren’t they? It’s easy to get a TV commercial with a creative jingle “stuck on repeat” in your head. Or maybe you find yourself singing a catchy tune, over and over for hours.

We need your help to write a memorable jingle that will inspire children to wash their hands for 20 seconds. Are you up for the challenge?

Here’s How It Works

Essity recently launched Handwashing Works!, a hand hygiene education program for pre-K through second graders. Students learn the five steps to follow for effective handwashing and when they should wash their hands. (Browse our Handwashing Works! web site for more information.)

We need your help to create a memorable, jammin’ jingle for the Handwashing Works! hand hygiene education program! Write a 20-second jingle about handwashing, specifically about the importance of scrubbing your hands. The winning jingle submission will be used by teachers and educators across the country when implementing the Handwashing Works! program in 2019-2020.
