Express Your Simple Win Creativity

Nick Jonas’s “Express You Simple Win Creativity” contest open to those aged 6-18 with diabetes. Nick, who has type 1 diabetes and uses the Bayer CONTOUR meter, has taken steps to inspire young people with diabetes to achieve Simple Wins: small, everyday victories for managing diabetes that can lead to big differences over time.

Nick’s Simple Wins are writing lyrics, performing and making music. Now he wants to encourage other young people with diabetes to share their creativity and their own personal Simple Wins through the Bayer ‘Express Your Simple Win Creativity Contest.’

Nick: ‘With this contest, I hope people are inspired by others’ entries, as well as encouraged to submit and share their own, but most of all, I hope that everyone has fun with it. Diabetes can be hard to live with, but when you manage it well, you can still do the things you love most in the world.’

To enter, young people with diabetes between the ages of 6 and 18 are asked to record a 15-30 second video that demonstrates their Simple Win in an artistic way. The personal video submission can be a visual demonstration of original song lyrics, photography, painting/drawing, acting or another form of creativity.

Once the video is complete, entrants can go to and upload and complete the eligibility criteria to enter the contest.

Good luck to everyone!
