Nick Jonas and Bayer HealthCare Announce "Simple Inspirations" Contest to Motivate and Support Those Newly Diagnosed with Diabetes

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- "Simple Inspirations," a new contest, sponsored by Bayer HealthCare, challenges people living with diabetes to motivate newly diagnosed patients by sharing their most inspirational thoughts about living with the disease. The goal of the contest is to enrich the lives of everyone who has diabetes -- regardless of how long they've been diagnosed -- and to demonstrate that people with diabetes can live a full and engaged life by effectively managing their condition. One grand prize winner will meet international singing sensation Nick Jonas at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Los Angeles Walk to Cure Diabetes. The winner will also appear in a video with Nick to be launched on November 14, 2011 -- World Diabetes Day. No purchase is necessary or required to claim a prize.


Bayer's "Simple Inspirations" contest invites entrants to visit and submit up to 140 words, with an optional accompanying image, detailing what inspirational thoughts they would share with someone recently diagnosed with diabetes. Entries can be lyrics, a poem or short essay and will be accepted until October 3, 2011. The contest is open to people with diabetes aged 13+ years. Nick and a team of judges will select one grand prize winner. Twelve runners up will receive a 2012 calendar featuring the inspirational thoughts and images from the winner and runner-up entries. The top inspirational thoughts and World Diabetes Day video will be posted on

Nick Jonas, now 18, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 13. Since he publicly announced his diagnosis, he has become widely recognized and applauded for speaking out passionately to help other young people with diabetes through efforts to educate, support and inspire. Nick uses Bayer's CONTOUR® USB meter and knows how important good diabetes management is.

"Through my work with Bayer, I am continually moved by the feedback I get from people who tell me that I've inspired them because of my diabetes," said Nick. "In turn, I am just as motivated by their diabetes stories. It's important to me to give back to others and support the diabetic community with opportunities to learn about diabetes and how to live a full life in spite of it. Through this Simple Inspirations contest, Bayer and I invite people already living with diabetes to use creative expression to help motivate newly diagnosed persons to manage their diabetes properly."

Nick is a paid spokesperson for Bayer Diabetes Care. He has been working with Bayer to inspire people with diabetes since 2008. Nick blogs about his personal experiences with diabetes on where he writes about his latest activities.
