3. SWEEPSTAKES DRAWING: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose
decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes, the selection of the potential
winner, and all matters related to the Sweepstakes, are final and binding. Administrator will select
potential Sweepstakes winner in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received in
accordance with these Official Rules through both entry methods combined on or about
November 19, 2019. The potential winner will be notified by email or phone. The potential winner
(or his/her parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) must execute
and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Release and, where permissible, Publicity
Release (“Declaration”) within five (5) days of attempted delivery or potential winner forfeits the
prize and it may be awarded to an alternate winner in a random drawing from among all remaining
eligible entries. The return of any prize/prize notification as undeliverable or if the potential winner
fails to comply with any of these requirements or with the Official Rules in any way may result in
disqualification and an alternate winner may be selected in a random drawing from among all
remaining eligible entries. Failure by potential winner to provide the requested information within
the stated time period may result in the automatic forfeiture of the prize. If potential winner of
prize cannot be contacted or the prize is rejected or returned as undeliverable, or potential winner
fails to provide any requested information within the required time period, the potential winner
forfeits his/her prize. Receiving prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In
the event that potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the prize to an
alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3)
alternate drawings will be held if necessary to award an unclaimed prize, after which the prize will
remain un-awarded. Prize will be fulfilled within approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of
the Sweepstakes and verification of winner.
4. PRIZE: One (1) Grand Prize: A $50,000 check. Prize is non-transferable. Winner is
