WATSONVILLE, Calif. — California Strawberries kicks off peak season with the launch of its national ‘Love, Strawberries’ Jingle Contest. Starting April 1, 2022 through April 22, 2022, aspiring musicians and strawberry enthusiasts alike are encouraged to write, record and post their original 45-second jingle masterpieces highlighting the love people have for the famous heart-shaped berry via social media. California Strawberries will award one talented winner $10,000 plus an all-expense-paid trip for two to California.
‘Love, Strawberries’ launched in February as a new, year-long campaign platform inspired by the love and the care the heart-healthy berry provides. By design, the campaign taps into and celebrates the love that consumers have for this vibrant, sweet and juicy berry, and the millions of ways people enjoy them every day. The ‘Love, Strawberries’ Jingle Contest aims to elevate the reputation of California Strawberries, while aspiring to reach new iconic standards within pop culture.
