Aspen Capital Company has financed the WSU E-Warrior Digital Life and Learning Program since 2000. Their programs have helped to insure that every WSU student has access to state-of-the-art technology, to include comprehensive service and support, accidental damage protection, and periodic upgrades.

A key component of the partnership established between Aspen Capital and WSU includes Aspen’s commitment to “give back” to the University. Accordingly, Aspen Capital is pleased to provide two (2) $1000 (one thousand dollar) scholarships for the 2012-2013 e-Warrior e-Jingle Competition event. This means that if you have a team of two students you would each get a $1,000.00 scholarship.

About the Event

According to one source, the first radio jingle was created in 1926 for Wheaties and ever since has been a huge part of radio programming and radio & TV advertisements! Everyone has at least one idea for a great jingle and we want to hear what WSU students can create! Singing, limericks, talking, music, effects … all can be used to show off your creativity.

Students may submit up to two entries. All entries are entered into competition under a Creative Commons License. If you do not know what this is please be sure to read about it before you enter.

NOTE: All entries must be created/edited on either your WSU laptop or tablet device. Students that do not have a tablet may check one out at the Front Desk in Somsen 207.

Up to two (2) Aspen Capital e-Warrior Scholarships will be awarded for this competition to one team.
