Hello Elio’ers! It’s Tuesdays, so you know what that means. Besides being a little closer to the weekend than Monday, you also have the Elio Preview Tour blog to look forward to! This week we’re following up on our visit to Nazareth College. If you remember, we went to the college in Rochester last month for a jingle competition. We provided the competitors with two videos to score music to and we picked winners for each. We were overwhelmed with the amount of quality entries. As Jerome Vassallo, Elio Motors Vice President of Sales, put it…
“Elio Motors would like to thank Nazareth College and Nancy Strelau for hosting the Elio Jingle contest. We would also like to extend a congratulations to the winners, and thank each student for participating. There were quite a few viable submissions, and we can visualize different applications for several of them. In the end, the selected winners captured the excitement and passion of the Elio project and set the perfect tone to capture the attention of the listening audience. Thank-you all once again for selecting Elio Motors as the inspiration and for sharing your talents to an audience of your peers and Elio Motors fans. Well done and again, Congratulations!”
