3. Entry. During the Sweepstakes Period, eligible persons can enter by logging into
his/her Twitter account and tweeting a photo featuring activity in their field, with the
hashtags #PlacedToPerform and #Contest and @mention of their Channel Seedsman
(the “Entry Tweet”). If the @mention for a Channel Seedsman is not known, entrants
should contact their Channel Seedsman to determine the appropriate Twitter handle. To
be a valid entry, all Entry Tweets must:
• Include one (1) photo featuring activity in the Entrant’s field;
• Include the hashtags “#PlacedToPerform” and “#Contest”;
• “@mention” their Channel Seedsman
• Be original, and not include or reference any persons other than the

SLC-8276146-v1

• Comply with all Twitter Terms of Service and Rules and these Official
Rules.
By sending an Entry Tweet that complies with the above, a person will have one entry in
the Sweepstakes. An eligible person can enter up to one time per day during the
Sweepstakes Period; however, Entrants wishing to submit multiple Entry Tweets during
the Sweepstakes Period should submit different photos, rather than re-entering photos
that have been previously submitted. Sharing an Entry Tweet will not count as an
additional entry. No Entrant may use more than one Twitter account to enter the
Sweepstakes.
By entering, a person agrees to adhere to these Official Rules and all rules established
by Twitter. Each Entrant hereby grants a complete release of Twitter from all claims,
losses and harms that the Entrant may allege or incur relating to this Sweepstakes, and
acknowledges and agrees that this Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored, endorsed or
administered by, or associated with, Twitter.
All entries will become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or
returned, and no correspondence will be entered into regarding the status of any entry;
provided that, Sponsor may in its sole discretion decide to correspond with entrants on
a case by case basis regarding entry requirements. Entries that do not comply with the
rules of the Sweepstakes on the applicable Drawing Date (as defined below) will result
in disqualification. Incomplete or illegible entries or entry material will not be considered.
Entries will be void if electronically or mechanically reproduced, forged, defective,
altered or obtained through unauthorized channels or if they contain production,
typographical, electronic, mechanical or other errors. Sweepstakes is subject to change
without notification in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole
discretion to disqualify any entry at any time which, in Sponsor’s opinion, is offensive,
contains unsuitable material, endangers the safety or well-being of any person, or if it is
determined the Entrant has not complied with these Official Rules. Sponsor is not
responsible for lost, late, stolen, damaged, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled,
delayed, not visible or misdirected entries; all of which will be void in Sponsor’s sole
discretion. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the Authorized Account Holder of
the email address associated with the Twitter account used to enter will be deemed to
be the Entrant. The “Authorized Account Holder” is the natural person assigned an
email address by an internet access provider, online service provider or other
organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with
the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the
Authorized Account Holders.
4. License Grant / Release. Entering this Sweepstakes constitutes Entrant’s full
agreement to give Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive
license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and
display the Entry Tweet in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to
incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or
later developed, including without limitation by re-tweeting an Entry Tweet for
promotional or marketing purposes or otherwise using it in connection with
SLC-8276146-v1
Sponsor’s social media accounts. Entrant also grants a waiver and full release
relating to the Entry Tweets, including without limitation waiving rights of
publicity or privacy of Entrant. If requested, Entrant will sign any documents that

all components thereof. By entering, you warrant and represent that you are the

winner for any particular Prize is inadvertently named, Sponsor will randomly select one
winner from among such persons to be deemed the winner. Except where prohibited by
law, the winner also grants Sponsor the right to use the winner’s submission, full name,
