Harris Teeter Together in Education Schools Sing My Jingle and earn $21,000
Thirty-three schools competed for prize money through the competition launched in January

Charlotte, NC – Harris Teeter Together in Education is announcing today the results of its annual Sing My Jingle contest, a competition through which schools were given the opportunity to earn prize money for submitting what was determined to be the best version of the company’s my harris teeter jingle.

Harris Teeter Together in Education awarded six prizes in the contest, one for each entry level. A panel of Harris Teeter judges determined the winners of five of the six categories; community votes chose the people’s choice winner:

• Trinity Lutheran School in Newport News, VA: Overall Winner, $10,000
• Davidson Day School in Davidson, NC: Pre-School Winner, $2,500
• Highland Elementary in Sanford, NC: Elementary School Winner, $2,500
• Wesleyan Christian Academy in High Point, NC: Junior High School Winner, $2,500
• Wesleyan Christian Academy in High Point, NC: High School Winner, $2,500
• Peace Preschool in Charlotte, NC: People’s Choice Winner, $1,000 

The my harris teeter jingle contest is an extension of the my harris teeter campaign developed by the company during the fall of 2005 and is another way Harris Teeter shows support for its community.  The jingle’s lyrics reflect the ownership shoppers take in Harris Teeter; the way they refer to Harris Teeter stores as “my harris teeter,” and to associates as “my store manager,” “my pharmacists,” and so on.
 
Together in Education is the company’s program through which it supports schools financially in the markets in which it is located.  Since Harris Teeter launched Together in Education in 1998, it has donated over $15 million dollars to participating school.
