I Don't Want to Miss Contest With Danny Gokey and Clorox


Clorox is spreading the word about flu prevention with American Idol finalist Danny Gokey. Together they have launched the I Don’t Want to Miss…, a national campaign designed to get teens and their teachers involved in flu prevention. Clorox is calling on school musical groups nationwide to develop a video performance of a song written by Berklee College of Music student, Will Wells, on what teens would not want to miss out on if they were home sick and why prevention is important. School groups are encouraged to be creative and put their own spin on the song.

Contest Details:

  • Download the song I Don’t Want To Miss…
  • Get your music class, group or glee club to learn the song and create a video
  • Include a video introduction and be sure that your teacher is in the video
  • All students must sign consent forms
  • Upload your entry onto School.Tube
  • Open to USA middle schools and high schools that are not-for-profit schools
  • Entries can be submitted up to March 4 at 11:59 ET
  • See complete rules for more information


And guess, just guess, what the winning school will win???? A music class led by former American Idol finalist Danny Gokey! Now how cool is that, I ask you?

Plus, for each entry submitted, The Clorox Company will donate $100 (up to $10,000) to the Sophia’s Heart Foundation, a charity founded by Gokey in honor of his late wife, Sophia, and dedicated to helping children achieve academic success via musical training and restoring musical dreams in children.

As for my own pre-teen, I know she misses socializing with her girlfriends at school when she is sick! When she was little, sick days were much more fun for her (as long as she wasn't feeling too bad, of course!) then she loved laying around in bed and watching her favorite shows and eating in bed. Now though, she gets pretty miserable when she has to miss school and her friends. And to be fair, I think she also realizes now that missing school will mean having to 'catch up' on all her class work that she missed when sick....never any fun! Luckily my daughter is much more cooperative as well as aware of the importance of preventing colds and flu. For example, she will wash her hands more, agree to wearing a sweater on chilly days, and getting more sleep.

To help Clorox and Danny Gokey with this important campaign, you can also visit the contest page on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/Clorox) and learn more. And note that for the first 100 groups to submit, the teacher will receive a wellness care package from The Clorox Company.
