The Georgia Lottery gave Georgia high schools the opportunity to win additional money for their theatre department by performing the “HOPE” Jingle and submitting their own, original version of the song! Groups of two or more people were invited to put their talents to the test, creating videos of themselves performing the jingle in their own creative, unique way. Ten semi-finalist groups were posted online for Georgia to help choose five winning favorites.

Pictured below are the winning schools accepting their checks!
