*MADISON, WI -– American Family Insurance has launched its second annual Jingle Dreams contest, giving consumers a chance to share their dreams and win an all expenses-paid weekend of inspiration to Indianapolis, Feb. 3 – 5, 2012. Two lucky winners and two guests will receive tickets to Super Bowl XLVI and VIP access to major events including the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration and Leigh Steinberg’s Hall of Fame Awards Dinner, plus the chance to mix and mingle with celebrities, professional athletes and team owners. The contest runs through January 13, 2012 at www.jingledreams.com.

American Family Insurance protects the dreams of millions of Americans and supports the communities it serves. “Caring for our customers and protecting their dreams is integral to the way we do business,” said Telisa Yancy, advertising director, American Family Insurance.  “We are proud to give all consumers the chance to share their dreams with the world in our Jingle Dreams contest, now in its second year. The contest is a fun, inspiring way to engage people from all walks of life in thinking about and acting on their dreams.”

Jingle Dreams contest entry is simple. Consumers are asked to record their dreams using a video camera or webcam, then visit www.jingledreams.com to upload their video. Contest entrants can sing, dance, recite a poem, talk or express their dreams in the most creative and compelling way possible. Online viewers will then vote for their favorite video.

Last year’s Jingle Dreams contest winner, Mark Patterson, an Atlanta-based contemporary gospel singer/songwriter and owner of a small business, believes strongly in the power of dreams. “I have been blessed to sing with some of the most prolific gospel artists of our time that have inspired me since childhood and I have traveled to places that I would not have imagined, yet I am still amazed that I won the 2011 Jingle Dreams contest,” said Patterson.

“It’s as though the thousands of people who voted for me could feel my passion as I work everyday to live out my dreams. This year’s winners will be amazed at how exciting and inspiring it is to be in the company of greatness during Super Bowl weekend. This is a true blessing for everyone involved.”

One of the many highlights of the weekend of inspiration is the opportunity for Jingle Dreams contest winners to be part of the 2012 Super Bowl Gospel Celebration, named by USA Today as “One of the best Super Bowl events to attend.” This year’s event will celebrate 13 years of inspiration bringing together top NFL players and Grammy Award-winning artists.
