8/22/14 1:14 PM
Impact of the money win/milestone on the individual (25 %)
Sentiment and Tone (25 %)
Entries that do not contain all required entry information or are considered inappropriate for any
reason are not eligible. The Ten (10) Entries with the highest scores from the Judges will be deemed
the potential Grand Prize winners. In the event of a tie, an additional “tie-breaking” judge will be
brought in to evaluate the tied entries, based on number of social media followers. If there is still a tie,
an additional tie-breaker will be based on time of entry into the Promotion. Sponsor reserves the right
not to award all prizes or to choose fewer than ten (10) if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a
sufficient number of eligible and qualified Entries. Prize awards are subject to verification of eligibility
and compliance with these Official Rules.
4. WINNER NOTIFICATION: Potential winners will receive prize notification via direct messages to the
Instagram, Facebook or Twitter accounts in which they used to enter, within one (1) day of the winner
selection or as soon as reasonably practicable. The potential winners will be required to respond to
the direct message to claim their prize within two (2) days. The potential winner then and only then
becomes the “winner.” If such potential winner cannot be contacted within a reasonable time period, if
the potential winner is ineligible, if any notification is returned undeliverable, or if the potential winner
otherwise fails to fully comply with these Official Rules, he/she will forfeit that prize and an alternate
winner will be selected from among all remaining eligible entries using the judging criteria listed
above.

discovered during prize verification you have entered, attempted to enter, or used multiple accounts
to enter more than the stated limit, you will be disqualified at the discretion of the administrator, or will
be void. Entries generated by script, macro, or other automated means or which subvert the entry
process, are void. All Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or
