the application of the following criteria: Entrant’s ability to convey a compelling MoonPie
Memory via the Story or Photo submission (60% of total score); the Entrant’s ability to
describe or illustrate the MoonPie Memory in a creative manner (40% of total score). The
Entrant receiving the highest score from the panel of judges will be declared the potential

highest score from the panel of judges will be declared the potential Second Prize winner,
subject to verification of eligibility. The Entrants receiving the third (3rd) through fiftysecond
(52nd) highest scores from the panel of judges will be declared potential Second Prize
winners, subject to verification of eligibility. The Entrants receiving the fifty-third (53rd)

Third Prize winners, subject to verification of eligibility. In the event of a tie, the Entrant
scoring highest in the “Entrant’s ability to convey a compelling MoonPie Memory via the
Story submission” judging criteria will be used to determine priority.
All decisions of Sponsor shall be final and binding in all respects. The potential prize winner
will be notified on or about July 31, 2017 by email or phone call from the Sponsor or
Sponsor’s representative, depending upon the potential winner’s method of entry. In response
to the prize notification, potential winner must reply to the Sponsor via email or via
telephone to the Sponsor within forty-eight (48) hours of notification by the Sponsor. Failure
to reply within forty-eight hours will result in the potential prize winner being disqualified
and an alternate prize winner may be selected. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will attempt to
contact up to three (3) potential winners of each prize in accordance with the above
procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed.
Potential Grand Prize winner and First Prize winner will be required to sign an Affidavit (or
Declaration) of Eligibility/Release of Liability/Publicity and Advertising Consent and

required by Sponsor and return such documents within ten (10) days of prize notification or

potential winner is disqualified for any reason, the Entrant who submitted the next-highest
scoring Story will be contacted by Sponsor’s representative in the same manner as described
above. The Contest Entrant is solely responsible for entering the Contest during the Contest
Period and properly claiming a prize if selected as a winner. The reporting and payment of
any required tax liabilities (federal, state and local) incurred by a prize winner as a result of this

discretion. ARV for travel prize may vary depending upon point of departure and destination
and fare fluctuations. If the closest airport to prize winner’s home is in close enough
proximity to prize destination city so that, as Sponsor may determine in its sole discretion, a
flight is unnecessary, such prize winner will receive alternate ground transportation from the

compensation will be awarded to the winner and any portion of the First Prize allocated to
the guest that is not used will be forfeited. In the event any scheduled First Prize event and/or
any other component of the prize is cancelled, delayed, or postponed for any reason outside
the control of the Sponsor, Sponsor will have no further obligation, other than to award the
remainder of the prize. In the event First Prize winner and/or his or her travel companion
engage in behavior that (as determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion) is
obnoxious or threatening, illegal or that is intended to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any
other person, Sponsor reserves the right to terminate the trip or other applicable experience
early, in whole or in part, and send First Prize winner and/or his or her travel companion
home with no further compensation.
The First Prize winner must complete travel by June 30, 2019. Dates of departure and return
are subject to change at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Should the need arise to change the dates
of travel, Sponsor will provide the First Prize winner with 30 day advance notice of the
revised travel plans. If the First Prize winner is unable to participate in the First Prize trip
during dates approved by Sponsor, the First Prize will be forfeited in its entirety.

Any participant who is notified that he or she has won is the potential winner until Sponsor
determines, in its sole discretion, that the participant is eligible to win in accordance with
these Official Rules. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not

prize (if awarded to him/her) shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of
class action, and exclusively by the appropriate state or federal court located in Hamilton
