About the Nationwide Challenge Contest
The Nationwide Jingle Challenge High School Music Contest gave U.S. high school choirs, bands, glee clubs and similar musical performance groups a chance to put their own creative mark on the Nationwide jingle.
“Nationwide has supported education and educators for decades,” said Ramon Jones, Nationwide's Chief Marketing Officer. "Through programs like Prom Promise, the Golden Owl Award and many others, Nationwide has helped teachers provide an extraordinary education for students of all ages, and in turn created awareness about insurance, financial services and planning for retirement once their time in the classroom is over. The Nationwide Jingle Challenge is the latest such program.”
