Ottawa Students to Star in Nestlé Turtles Grammy Awards TV Ad



    High school students selected as winners of the "Sing the Turtles Jingle
    and Win" contest

    TORONTO, Feb. 7 /CNW/ - Nestlé Canada today announced three Ottawa high
school students - Derek Jones, Justin Elchakieh and Josh Holmes - are the
winners of the "Sing the Turtles Jingle and Win" contest. The trio's creative
interpretation of the classic "Mmm... I Love Turtles(TM)" jingle will serve as
the basis of a Turtles television commercial airing during the 50th Annual
Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 10, 2008 at 8:00 pm (ET/PT).
    "We received lots of great entries and were thrilled to hear from Turtles
lovers across Canada," says John Herbert, brand manager at Nestlé Canada. "For
the contest judges, it came down to creativity, presentation and a sense of
fun. Judging was tough, but Derek, Justin and Josh's entry rose to the top
because it had everything we were looking for - but you'll have to tune in to
find out why!"
    The ad will air twice during the Grammy Awards broadcast on Sunday,
February 10, 2008, once during the red carpet pre-show and again during the
awards ceremony.
    The "Sing the Turtles Jingle and Win" contest invited Canadians to create
a video of them singing the Turtles jingle and submit it on-line at
www.turtles.ca. The contest spanned Fall 2007 and entrants were also eligible
for the chance to win a secondary prize of one of three Sony Home
Entertainment Systems.
