the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and binding in all
matters related to the Sweepstakes.  Administrator
will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries
received during the Promotion Period, on or around October 2, 2020.  The potential winners will be notified by email.  Each potential Grand and First Prize winner (or
parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence)
will be required to sign and return
a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and where not prohibited a Publicity
Release (“Declaration”) which must be received by Administrator within
seven (7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize.  Further, each Grand Prize winner will be required
to designate a U.S. K-12 public school and provide the contact info for the school,
its principal and the school district’s superintendent, including valid email

the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner or the designated
school forfeits the applicable prize.  Receiving
