PRESTON, Wash. — Sparkling Ice, part of the Talking Rain Beverage Company portfolio, is proud to announce the brand’s third consecutive year as the official beverage sponsor of the High School Nation (HSN) Tour.
Demonstrating the initiative to introduce students to opportunities in the arts, the High School Nation Tour is a Music & Arts Festival that travels to high school campuses across the country. Designed exclusively for public school students, the High School Nation Tour is a first-of-its-kind program aimed to provide students with an engaging event featuring live music and interactive presentations that educate teens about careers in the arts. Now in its seventh year, the spring and fall tours will span across 50 high schools, engaging approximately 150,000 high school students across the nation.
“To have the opportunity to impact so many schools nationwide with our traveling teen music festival is a true passion of ours at High School Nation,” said Jimmy Cantillon, Founder of High School Nation. “Donating 50 full music recording studios to high schools in 2018 is how we will continue our mission of keeping the arts alive in public schools. The support Sparkling Ice has shown HSN over the past two years is unparalleled, and we’re thrilled to have them on board this year once again!”
This year, Sparkling Ice will bring back the popular “Spin Art Stations,” where participants will have the opportunity to create bold spin art on LP records. As a new element to the tour, students will also be invited to the Sparkling Ice Mix Station, where they can create a custom recording using DJ mixing boards by Pioneer. In addition to the creative components, students can sample various flavors of Sparkling Ice, including a new flavor set to debut this spring.
Sparkling Ice will also host the High School National Dance-Off, where students are encouraged to showcase their best moves in a 30-second, on-stage dance competition in front of the whole school. A winner is selected based on crowd reaction.
“Sparkling Ice is thrilled to have the opportunity to support music and arts in schools as a three-time sponsor of the High School Nation Tour,” said Nina Morrison, VP of Community and Customer Relations at Talking Rain Beverage Co. “We admire HSN’s mission and the impact it has had on students and local communities, and we’re proud to continue supporting these initiatives through our partnership with this wonderful organization.”
