Folgers Jingle Contest 2017 ~ Win $25K and Mentoring Session with Chris Young

This post was sponsored by Folgers as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines concerning the use of endorsement and testimonials in advertising. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Every weekend I get to sleep in late as the kids are with grandma.  That lets me make my cup of Folgers coffee.  I can savor the taste longer with all the peace and quiet. Nowadays, when you turn on the television, you cannot go a day without hearing the Folgers jingle.

This jingle has become synonymous with coffee.  The jingle is a piece of pop culture. Generations after generations have heard the tune and sang along to the words. Folgers has a tradition of inspiring musicians to follow their dreams, and this year, they have teamed up with country music singer/songwriter Chris Young to encourage aspiring musicians to create their own version of the iconic Best Part of Wakin' Up™  Jingle in the Folgers Jingle Contest.

Here are the details:

* Submit a video of your best version of the jingle on the Folgers website from January 30th through February 27th.  Your version of the Jingle must include the complete melody and complete lyrics of “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup.”

* From February 27th to March 19th, 5 semi-finalists will be chosen and each will have a mentor session with Chris Young before the online vote.

* From March 27th to April 24th, fans around the country will get the chance to vote daily for their favorite jingle. Every vote automatically enters you to win prizes up to $10,000.

* Finally, in May, one winner will be selected to win the grand prize of $25,000!

Now it is your turn to put your twist on this classic jingle and your chance to win $25,000 and a mentoring session with country singer/songwriter Chris Young.  

What are you waiting for? Enter here now and don't forget to vote for your favorites.
