Most of you know by now, I love my coffee. I can’t start my day without one. On rare occasions that I do, it’s going to be a drag. A long one. So I always make it to a point to enjoy my favorite blend. Want to know what else I enjoy? Supporting brands with a great cause – just like Folgers! Are you familiar with their iconic ❝ Best Part of Wakin’ Up ❞ jingle? They’re inviting any and all aspiring musicians to join Folgers Jingle Contest and create their own version and stand a chance to win the grand prize of $25,000! 💕 On top of that, you will also get a mentoring session with Grammy-nominated country music artist Chris Young – you definitely wouldn’t want to miss this!

Across our generation, Folgers Jingle has been heard, remembered and has become a piece of pop culture. Now it’s your turn to embrace the well-known tune and make it your own! Check out the details below to see the mechanics of this contest:

    » Start by creating a video of your best version of the jingle and submit it on Folgers website: folgerscoffee.com from January 30th through February 27th. The version you created of the Jingle must include the complete melody as well as the full lyrics ❝ The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup ❞.
    » Starting February 27th until March 19th there will be 5 semi-finalists chosen, and each will have a mentor session with Chris Young before the online vote.
    » From March 27th all the way up to April 24th, fans across the country will get the opportunity to vote daily for their favorite jingle. Each vote automatically enters the participant (which is YOU) to win prizes up to $10,000.

    I am a coffee junkie myself! I’ve only been away an hour and I’m on my second cup as I type this. Awe, I will miss the old jingle, it’s what I grew up with. Although I can’t wait to see what people come up with either!

  • Kindness in Demand

    How cool! I can’t sing to save my life but what an exciting opportunity for others. Also your blog is so cute, I love how bright it is.

    What a fun contest! Oh man I love how jingles get stuck in my head, that is how the company knows they have a good jingle!

    I am not by any means musically inclined, but I sent this to a good friend who is so maybe he will have a shot!

    How fun would this be? Although I don’t drink coffee so that might be a little rough.

    2 things I love, coffee and a catchy jingle. Folgers is defiantly one of those cheerful jingles that sticks with you and you find yourself humming as you pour your 2nd cup of coffee. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

    What a fun contest. Curious to see who wins! I can’t sing for my life so I won’t be entering but the idea is a good one for sure. I’m off to get another coffee!

  • melissa

    I am not a musical person but my son and daughter both play the piano and my son composes his own lyrics too- I may have to get him to try and come up with a new coffee jingle- while I am drinking my coffee this weekend! Thanks for putting this contest on my radar!

  • Terri Steffes

    That is so much fun. I can’t wait to see what entries they get. I hope they put their favorites on social media.
