absolute discretion, to substitute a prize with a prize of comparable or greater value or cash value. In the event
that a prize cannot be awarded for any reason, or a winner is not capable of redeeming a prize for any reason,
Family Dollar shall not be obligated to award any prize. If, for any reason, more than the stated number of prizes
are claimed, Family Dollar reserves the right to award the prizes in such category by random drawing from among
eligible prize claimants in such prize category or in a manner to be determined by Family Dollar in its sole and
absolute discretion. All decisions of Family Dollar relating to this Promotion will be final.
HOW TO ENTER
To enter, Entrant must provide us with their school email address, name, address, and phone number on the
campaign webpage (the “Entry” or “Entries”). One Entry will be allowed per person or email address into the
Promotion for a chance to win. Customers submitting multiple names and/or multiple email addresses will be
disqualified. The award of a prize is contingent upon Entrant complying with all conditions and fulfilling all
requirements set forth herein. Entries must include all of the required information as set forth in the submission
form and herein or will be deemed ineligible.
Between July 10 and September 17, twenty (20) potential winners — two winners each week — will be selected
at random from among all eligible entries received to date during the Promotion period. The odds of being
selected as a potential winner depend on the number of eligible entries received. Winners will be announced by
October 7, 2022. Winning entrants may be subject to additional teacher verification.
HOW TO CLAIM PRIZE
Potential winners will be notified via email through the email address supplied during the Promotion entry and will
be asked to provide their full name, age, additional teacher verification, and mailing address within a specific time
period. Prizes will be mailed within three (3) weeks of receipt of winner’s details. If a potential winner cannot be
contacted within three (3) days of the first attempt to contact him/her, or does not respond within the timeframe
stated in the notification, Family Dollar may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place.
