Super Dads Making a Difference

Wednesday, June 22, 2011
5-hour ENERGY Super Dad
Earlier this month, 5-hour ENERGY® put out the call for fans to nominate dads, grandpas, godfathers, stepdads and other father figures as Super Dads. In honor of Father’s Day we thought that the Super Dad Contest was a great way for all 5-hour ENERGY® fans to give their hard working dads the praise they deserve. While some opted to give more traditional gifts like ties, socks, fishing poles and dare we say World’s #1 Dad coffee mugs, 5-hour ENERGY® decided to up the ante and let some fans give their fathers the gift of energy!

Nominations came in from all over the country but in the end we had to narrow the field to ten. The touching tributes some fans gave their dads and husbands didn’t make our job of selecting the winners any easier. In the end, we selected ten winners to receive free 12 packs of 5-hour ENERGY® to get them through their daily duties as Super Dads! We hope that with 5-hour ENERGY® in tow these Super Dads will continue balancing their professional and personal lives, making a difference for their communities and families alike.

All the entries we received were heartfelt and we had a hard time determining the winners, but the stories of these amazing men stuck with us. Steve Kozloff builds houses, updates his own home and still finds the time to spend time with his daughter, new puppy and wife. Barry Chupp was nominated by his daughter for being an all around handyman, loving father and excellent listener, even when it comes to her boy problems. Here at 5-hour ENERGY®, we would like to say cheers to Steve, Barry and all the other winners of the Super Dad Contest. Check out the tribute video below to see some of the Super Dad stories that earned these men the title of 5-hour ENERGY® Super Dads or email us for a full list of winners at contests@5hourenergy.com


It's a New Flavor of 5-hour ENERGY®!

Thursday, June 9, 2011

Take a screenshot of this and scrapbook it - because this is the official announcement of the newest addition to the 5-hour ENERGY® family: Grape Extra Strength 5-hour ENERGY®. Our bundle of joy bodes a striking resemblance to the rest of the 5-hour ENERGY® crew: it's under 2 ounces, sugar free and 4 calories, but this little punch of purple power is, well … purple! Our mini guzzle of grape may be brand new, but the future of new Grape Extra Strength 5-hour ENERGY® is already clear - just like the rest of the brood, this energy shot will provide hours of energy for busy, hard working people.

To celebrate the arrival of our new flavor of 5-hour ENERGY®, we're not sending out purple cigars or adorable postcards with our little tot in some sort of themed outfit. Instead, we're giving our fans the opportunity to get their hands on Grape Extra Strength 5-hour ENERGY® before it hits shelves this summer. That's right - we're giving away free samples to the lucky winners of our online contests. Truth be told, we heard what other celebs were being offered for an exclusive peek of their new bambinos, we did rethink the "free" part, but because we love our fans, we stuck to our guns.

Nominate a 5-hour ENERGY® 'Super Dad'

Friday, June 3, 2011

Father's Day is almost upon us. Come June 19, dads, grandpas, godfathers, stepdads and other father figures the world over will be celebrated for their dedication to their families. We know that homemade #1 Dad tee shirts, snazzy ties, tools and fishing gear make great gifts, but this year, 5-hour ENERGY® is presenting you with the opportunity to give Dad the gift of energy. After all while these "Super Dads”, may seem invincible, even these everyday heroes need an occasional pick-me-up to keep their superpowers from fading.

Nominate an important man in your life to be a "5-hour ENERGY® Super Dad”. Simply tell us in 400 words or less why your "Super Dad" deserves some extra energy and submit a photo of your nominee.

In addition, 5-hour ENERGY® will honor all of these "Super Dads" by sharing their photos and stories in a special online presentation.

Yes, you can still give Paw Paw the #1 Dad tee or add another tie to his growing collection - but follow in his big footsteps by going the extra mile to show your appreciation. Visit The 5-hour ENERGY Contest Page to unmask the superhero dad in your life.

Here are the "5-hour ENERGY® Super Dad Contest" rules:
