GRAND PRIZE CRITERIA
Grand prize winner will be selected based on the following criteria in addition to having earned 900+ points for completing and sharing social media challenges (100 points per completed and qualified weekly social media challenge, and 50 points per share on Facebook and Twitter, see submitted and approved weekly challenges for option to share.) Criteria will apply to all challenges submitted by contestant – 25 points:
The Contestant responsible for the Entry receiving the highest score will be deemed the potential Grand Prize winner and subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Rules, will be deemed the official Grand Prize winner of the Contest (“Grand Prize Winner”). The Contestant responsible for receiving the second highest score, after the Grand Prize Winner’s Entry, will be deemed the potential First Prize winners and subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Rules, will be deemed the official First Prize winners of the Contest (“First Prize Winners,” and together with the Grand Prize Winner, the “Winners”), as determined by the Judges on the basis of the criteria stated above. In the event of a tie for the Grand Prize Winner or the First Prize Winners, the Judges will evaluate the tied Entries, and will declare the Winners based on the Entries with the highest score in the essay. In the event a tie still remains, the Judges will re-judge the tied Entries using “Originality” as the only criteria and will assign a score to each such Entry from 0% to 100%. By participating, Contestants agree that the decisions of the Judges are final and binding in all matters relating to this Contest.

The “Authorized Account Holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the e-mail address used to make the Entry. Each Contestant may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any Contestant unable to show proof of being an Authorized Account Holder.
