JUDGING: A total of twenty-four (24) prize winners will be selected in this Contest. All Submissions will be initially reviewed by the Sponsor or a Sponsor representative for compliance with these Official Rules (including the Submission requirements). Thereafter, the eligible Submissions will be judged and scored by Marshawn Lynch on or about December 7, 2020. Each eligible Submission will be judged and scored based on the following criteria: (34%) Creativity; (33%) Originality; and (33%) Presentation.

Each Submission will, for each of the above-described criteria, be scored with a raw score between 1-5 (with 5 being the highest). For each Submission, after a (1-5) score has been determined for each criterion, each raw score will be “weighted”, taking into account the relative percentages shown above (in parentheses, next to each criterion). The “total score” for each scored Submission will be the total score of all of the above criteria (taking into account the above-described “weighting”). The Submission having the highest “total score” will be deemed the Grand Prize Winner. The next Submission receiving the next highest score will be deemed the First Prize Winner.  The next twenty-two (22) Submissions receiving the next highest scores will be deemed the second prize winners (each, a “Second Prize Winner”). In the event of a tie for any prize level, an additional judge will score each tied Submission (pursuant to the procedures described above) and the Submission with the highest total score pursuant to that subsequent scoring will be deemed the respective prize winner. In the event of a further tie, Sponsor (as applicable) shall, in their sole discretion, choose a prize winner (as applicable) based on its evaluation of which Submission is superior overall, taking the entire judging criteria into consideration. The potential prize winners will be notified by the Sponsor via direct message to his/her Instagram or Facebook account within one (1) to three (3) business days from the date in which the judging is complete. Each, potential prize winner will be required to supply his/her email address and shipping address for delivery of the respective prize. The Grand Prize Winner and First Prize Winner will be required to complete the prize claims and verification process as further described in the PRIZE CLAIMS section below. Sponsor will only make two (2) attempts to reach a potential prize winner via direct message. In the event the Sponsor cannot reach a potential prize winner after two (2) attempts have been made, the original potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate prize winner (selected via the judging criteria outlined above) will be notified until the correct number of prize winners (within the prize level) are confirmed.

All prizes will be shipped within four (4) weeks or less from the date in which all prize winners are determined and verified via the prize claim process. The names of the prize winners may also be posted on Sponsor’s website and/or social media channels.

If the potential Grand Prize Winner or First Prize Winner fails to return the Required Documents within the time period required, or if the email is returned as undeliverable, such potential Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the respective prize and an alternate will be notified as outlined in the JUDGING section above, even if the disqualified potential Prize Winner’s name may have been publicly announced.  The Potential Grand Prize Winner and First Prize Winner must report income to the IRS.  In the event it is deemed during the verification process that the potential Grand Prize Winner or First Prize Winner does not have a unique, personal and valid social security number for Sponsor to report the tax liability associated with acceptance of the respective prize, such potential Prize Winner will be disqualified and an Alternate will be notified as outlined above.  Valid social security numbers will be determined by IRS requirements. If it is determined by the Sponsor, in its sole discretion, that a potential Prize Winner is not eligible or otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules, the potential Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the respective prize and an alternate will be notified as outlined in the JUDGING section above, even if the disqualified potential Prize Winner’s name may have been publicly announced.  In the event that the potential Prize Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor/Independent Administrator shall have no liability or obligation to such individual.
