Diabetes Creativity Contest Offers Young People the Chance to Meet Nick Jonas

Apr 30, 2009

Next October, following the end of the contest, the top three favorite videos will be picked by a team of judges and those entrants will get to meet Nick in person. the contest is open to kids with diabetes between the ages of 6 and 18.

Nick Jonas, who has type 1 diabetes, and Bayer Diabetes Care are working to inspire young people with diabetes to achieve Simple Wins: small, everyday victories for managing diabetes that can lead to big differences over time. Their "Express Your Simple Win Creativity Contest" is designed to show kids that, like Nick, they don't have to let diabetes get in the way of their dreams. Nick wrote the song  "A Little Bit Longer" about having diabetes, and he considers his Simple Wins to be writing lyrics, performing, and making music.

To enter the Bayer "Express Your Simple Win Creativity Contest," young people with diabetes between the ages of 6 and 18 are asked to record a 15-30 second video that demonstrates their Simple Win in an artistic way. The personal video submission can be a visual demonstration of original song lyrics, photography, painting/drawing, acting or another form of creativity. Once the video is complete, entrants can go to www.NicksSimpleWins.com and upload and complete the eligibility criteria to enter the contest.

During the last week of each month from April through September, the top three videos will be posted on www.NicksSimpleWins.com and the public will vote on the best one, which will be announced at the end of the month. Each monthly winner will win a prize and be eligible for the Grand Prize drawing. In October, following the end of the contest, the top three favorite videos will be picked by a team of judges and those entrants will get to meet Nick in person.

The contest is open to eligible U.S. residents between the ages of 6 and 18 who have been diagnosed with diabetes. Restrictions and limitations apply.  See official contest rules for more information.  Only online entries via www.NicksSimpleWins.com will be accepted. All monthly winners will be required to provide a letter from a physician confirming the winner's diagnosis of diabetes. Grand prize winners will be notified on or about October 30, 2009.
