Enter the Sing Your “Frozen” Heart Out Contest!

Disclosure – I participated in an Ambassador campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received promotional items and product samples as a thank you for participating.”

Sing Your Frozen Heart Out

How would you or you and your family like to appear in a Kohl’s holiday commercial that will air during the 2014 American Music Awards broadcast? I took my five kids to see Frozen in the theater last winter and they all absolutely loved it, boys and girls alike. Then during summer camp this summer Frozen became the “go to” movie to show the kids on those rainy afternoons when the kids couldn’t go outside to play. It cracked me up all summer long that the kids would come home singing “Let It Go” in the car all the way there.

I’m getting my kids together to do a video entry to submit and if you’d like to do a video of yourself, your kids, or your whole family to enter then it’s super easy to submit. Head over to the Disney Frozen Friday page by September 29th and “Let It Go” using the karaoke lyric video posted on the page if you need any help with the lyrics. You can be original and put your own spin on the song if you’d like, just be sure not to show any brands or logos in your video and don’t wear revealing clothing or do any suggestive moves (consider the audience here). Your video should be a minimum of 60 seconds and no longer than four minutes. Apart from the lyrics your video must be 100% original and remember to get your parent’s permission if you’re a minor. Check out all the contest rules here!

Voting will start on the submissions on November 10th and the winning video will be revealed during a Kohl’s commercial during the American Music Awards on Sunday November 23rd at 8/7c. Get practicing, have fun and good luck with your video entry – I can’t wait to see the commercial in November!

There wasn’t a lot on my list this week and I decided to get the BOGO candles in order to hit $30 so I could use my $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon but I thought I’d check out the BOGO wine while I was in the store and I noticed the $25 rebate peelie on a lot of the beer packages with a total purchase of $50 or more so I figured that would make both the beer and wine free!
