Competition: Compose a Science Festival Jingle

USA Science and Engineering Festival
Submission Deadline: March 31, 2010. Prize for the winning Jingle: $500

Create a Jingle for the USA Science & Engineering Festival

This competition is to create a Jingle for the USA Science & Engineering Festival. It will be heard and sung by hundreds of thousands of science enthusiasts across the country.

It can be sung solo or with friends, with a choir or band, in unison or harmony, with accompaniment or a cappella, as long as the words and music are the submitter(s)’ original idea and the entire Jingle is original.

The Jingle should…

  • capture the spirit of curiosity, innovation and discovery that the Festival is all about
  • be so memorable that people can’t stop singing it!

Imagine hundreds of thousands of people humming the Jingle on their way to the USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo Day in the National Mall!

The following criteria will be considered for the winning Jingle:

  1. Creativity: Does the Jingle capture the spirit of the Festival? Is it unique? Interesting? Fun?
  2. Simplicity: Can people easily remember and sing it?
  3. Functionality: Is it appealing to people of all ages and backgrounds?
