HOW IT WORKS: 
During the Promotion Period, go to  HYPERLINK “http://www.quakerbacktoschool.com”
www.quakerbacktoschool.com (the
“Website”), follow the on-screen
instructions to complete the registration form as directed, and submit
your entry to see whether or not you are a prize winner, subject to
verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.
Limit one (1) entry per person per day. For purposes of these Official
Rules, a “day” is defined as any twenty-four (24) hour
period during the Promotion Period beginning at 12:00:00 a.m. CT and
ending at 11:59:59 p.m. CT. One (1) computer generated winning time will
be randomly generated each day of the Promotion Period for each of the
“Daily Prizes” (as defined below) available and one (1)
computer generated winning time will be randomly generated throughout
the Promotion Period for each of the “Grand Prizes” (as
defined below) available. If you are the first entrant to enter the
Promotion at or after one of the randomly generated times, you will be a
potential winner of the prize indicated, subject to verification of
eligibility. To claim a prize, follow the instructions provided. If you
receive a message that contains any message other than a winning prize
message, you are not a prize winner. In the event
of a dispute as to any online entry, the Authorized Account Holder of
the email address used to submit the entry will be deemed to be the
participant. The “Authorized Account Holder” is the natural
person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access
provider, online service provider, or other organization that is
responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated
with the submitted e-mail address at the time of entry, provided that
person meets all eligibility requirements set forth in these Official
Rules. Participants may not participate with multiple e-mail addresses,
nor may participants use any device or artifice to enter multiple times
per day or as multiple participants. Any participant who attempts to
participate with multiple e-mail addresses, under multiple identities or
uses any other device or artifice to enter multiple times per day will
be disqualified from participation in the Promotion. 
If due to printing, production or other errors, more prizes are claimed
than intended in accordance with Rule 4, the intended prize(s) will be
awarded in a random drawing from all those submitting purportedly valid
claims. No more than the number of prizes set forth in these Official
Rules will be awarded. ALL POTENTIAL WINNING GAME PLAYS ARE SUBJECT TO
VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING. A
“SCREEN SHOT” IS NOT PROOF OR EVIDENCE OF A WINNING GAME PLAY
AND/OR PRIZE. A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE
WEBSITE SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL SAID PARTICIPANT’S
ELIGIBILITY AND THE POTENTIAL WINNING PLAY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND SAID
PARTICIPANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. SPONSOR
WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS
VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY PLAY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR
ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE PLAY AND IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE
HONORED. The submission of a prize claim is solely the responsibility of
the participant.

The odds of winning a Daily Prize depend on the total number of eligible
entries each day, the number of prizes available each day at the time of
entry, and the time and date upon which entry occurs. The odds of
winning a Grand Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries
during the Promotion Period and the time and date upon which each entry
occurs. The number of prizes available will diminish as they are claimed
throughout the Promotion Period. Sponsor disclaims any and all liability
for continuing to advertise such prizes. If a potential winner is found
to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules,
declines to accept a prize, is unable to accept a prize, or Sponsor is
unable to contact a potential winner within a reasonable period (as
determined by Sponsor), or in the event that a prize confirmation or
prize is returned undeliverable, the prize will be forfeited in its
entirety and, at Sponsor’s discretion and time permitting, may be
placed back into the prize pool.
 
Limit one (1) Grand Prize and one (1) Daily prize per person. Each
winner is subject to verification of eligibility before being awarded a
prize.
Winner is solely responsible for paying all applicable federal,
state, and local income taxes, if any, and all other unspecified
expenses associated with the acceptance and/or use of prize.
Any difference between stated ARV of any prize and its actual value at
the time it is claimed will not be awarded. Prizes are not transferable.
Prizes are not redeemable for cash and prize substitutions will not be
allowed, except at sole discretion of the Sponsor who reserves the right
to substitute a prize of equal or greater value if an advertised prize
becomes unavailable. Any prize pictured or mentioned in point-of-sale,
online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging and
other Promotion advertising or Promotion materials is for illustrative
purposes only and may not be the actual prize awarded. Thus, actual
prize may vary from the prize pictured.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: Prizes will be awarded only if the potential winners fully comply
with these Official Rules. All details and other restrictions of prizes
not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in
its sole discretion. The potential Grand Prize winners will be required
to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where
imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively,
“Prize Claim Documents”) as a condition of
being awarded a prize.  If any potential Grand Prize winner fails or refuses to sign and return
all Prize Claim Documents within three (3) days of prize notification
(or such shorter time if exigencies so require), the winner may be
disqualified.
