organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the
Sweepstakes, including but not limited to the selection of the potential winner,
are final and binding. Administrator will select the potential Sweepstakes
winner by a random drawing from among all eligible
entries received during the Sweepstakes Period through both entry methods

potential winner will be notified by @OREO on the Social Account used to enter after
the date of the drawing and will be directed to an online form to collect their

winner (or his/her parent/legal guardian if winner is a Minor) is required to
complete and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and where not
prohibited a Publicity Release within four (4) days to claim the prize. If: (a)
the potential winner of the prize cannot be contacted, or winner (or his/her parent/legal
guardian if winner is a Minor) fails to provide any requested information
within the required time period including timely completion of the Declaration;
(b) a prize/prize notification is returned as undeliverable; or (c) the potential
winner does not comply with these Official Rules in any way, the potential
winner will  be disqualified and will forfeit
the prize. Odds of winning the prize will depend on the number of eligible
entries received during the Sweepstakes Period through both entry methods combined.
Receiving the prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that the potential winner forfeits the prize
or is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the prize to an alternate
winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.  If necessary, only three (3) such alternate drawings will
be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded if it is unclaimed.

 

5. PRIZE: ONE (1) Winner will receive a check
for $25,000. No substitutions or transfers of prize permitted by

Official Rules.
