Prize Drawings – Winner Selection & Notification (total of 3 winners):  Sponsor shall conduct a series of random prize drawings from among all eligible entries received from all entry methods combined as of the date and time of each drawing on or about 11/17/20, 11/24/20 and 12/15/20 to select one (1) potential winner per drawing date to receive the prize described below.


Note:  Limit one prize per person or household for the entire Sweepstakes Period.  All potential prize winners will be notified initially by phone and/or email following their selection.  If the Administrator is unsuccessful in its attempt to reach and speak directly with a selected potential winner by phone within 72-hours of the initial notification attempt to the phone number or email address associated with that individual’s entry, then that potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries in the applicable drawing pool. Alternate winners (if any) will be notified as per the procedures outlined above. 


During winner notification, the selected potential winner must confirm their eligibility, and indicate their willingness and ability to accept the designated prize.  Upon verification of his/her eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the potential winner will then receive official notification via email.  If any selected winner does not meet the eligibility requirements, or is unable or unwilling to accept the prize or elects to decline the prize, s/he will be disqualified and, at Sponsor’s discretion, an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected from among all remaining eligible entries in the applicable drawing pool and notified as per the procedures outlined above.  Any disqualified potential winner will not receive compensation.  Decisions of the Administrator in the selection and determination of all prize winners and in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes are final and binding. 


All of the following will apply to each winner: 1) Winner will be required to complete and return, within 3-days of date of receipt, a prize acceptance form including an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release and (where permitted) a publicity release;  2) Winner may be required to present proof of identification in any manner deemed reasonable and necessary by Administrator as a condition of receiving a prize;  and 3) Winner is responsible for paying all applicable taxes (including, but not limited to all local, state and federal income taxes) on his/her prize.  Failure to return the required documents within the time period noted above, or to provide proof of identification if requested, will result in disqualification and forfeiture of the prize, which Sponsor may award to an alternate winner selected randomly from among all remaining eligible entries in the applicable drawing pool. Such alternate winner will be notified as per the procedures outlined above.
