Add to calendar

The agency vs. agency Lip-Sync Battle is returning this year for the State Employees' Community Campaign (SECC)--and due to last year's success we're going virtual again!

This year's competition will start at noon Wednesday, Sept. 22, and will feature up to eight teams from state agencies competing in a creative performance that can include dancing, nods to famous music videos, props, costumes, and all kinds of hilarious surprises!

No actual singing (or even dancing) talent is required, but that shouldn't stop you from putting on a show-stopping, unforgettable performance destined to be the stuff of lip-sync legend.

The Indiana State Personnel Department (INSPD) is now accepting team registrations! The entry fee is $20 per team. The winner of the competition will be determined by donations made to the host charity. The act with the most donations in their name will be declared the winner. All proceeds will be donated to the Indiana Dept. of Child Service's 501 (c) (3) charity of choice for SECC, Isaiah House 117.

The competition will be fun and fierce.  You'll remember last year the Department of Financial Institutions won with a spot-on rendition of Pharrell Williams' "Happy." We need your team to challenge them!  You can see all of last year's entries by clicking here.

REGISTER YOUR TEAM

You can register your team by emailing spdcommunications@spd.in.gov.

Once your team is confirmed by INSPD Communications, your team will be provided with a link to a registration page where you will be able to submit your entry fee online.

Only one team per agency business unit can compete so choose your competitors wisely (that means separate field offices of the same agency can each have an entry). Please be aware of these competition guidelines.

  • The Indiana State Personnel Department (INSPD) will accept one team per agency business unit until all eight slots are filled. You must have your team's song choice identified before you submit your team’s registration. A spot is reserved for last year’s winner.
  • If multiple teams from an agency register, preference is given to the first team to register via email with their completed information. Remaining teams are placed on an alternate list and notified if a spot opens. INSPD reserves the right to expand the field if there is an overwhelming number of registrations.
  • The winner of the competition will be determined by the amount of donations to the host charity, made in the name of each act. The act with the most money raised for the charity will win. Details on how to vote/donate will be announced prior to the event.
  • Performances must last no more than five minutes.
  • Costumes, dancing, and props are fair game, but remember to keep it classy. Pre-recorded presentations can be as creative as you want, but must include the team, and be delivered to organizers (electronically) with video and audio in a pre-approved video format. This is a fun event, but it is also a work event, even outside of a professional setting, so please conduct yourself accordingly. 

Spectators

Because this year's Lip-Sync Battle is once again completely virtual, there will be no spectators. The live stream link will be provided prior to the event, and is open to anyone who wants to watch and virtually cheer on the participants. 

Shortly after the show ends, a video of the full event will be available on YouTube. There is no charge to watch the live stream, but viewers are encouraged to vote for their favorite performance either during the live event, or after watching the YouTube replay. Again, directions on how to vote/donate will be announced prior to the event.

If you have questions, email the Indiana State Personnel Department Communications Division at spdcommunications@spd.in.gov.
