Meet Nick Jonas!

Been dreaming of meeting rock star — and fellow person with diabetes — Nick Jonas? Well, now’s your chance.

“Simple Inspirations,” a contest sponsored by Bayer HealthCare, is challenging those who have diabetes to motivate people who are newly diagnosed by sharing their most inspirational thoughts on living with the condition and demonstrating that people with diabetes can “live a full and engaged life by actively managing their condition.”


The contest is open to people with diabetes age 13 years and over. Entries should be in the form of lyrics, a poem, or a short essay of up to 140 words, along with an optional image, and will be accepted until October 3, 2011. The grand prize winner will meet Nick Jonas at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Los Angeles Walk to Cure Diabetes and will also appear in a video with Nick to be launched on November 14, 2011. Twelve runners-up will receive a calendar full of the top inspirational thoughts and images submitted to the contest.
