Winner must first sign an affidavit, to be administered by e-mail or mail, and his/her entry must be verified by Sponsor. Sponsor reserves the right to require proof of age and state of residence prior to awarding any prize.

PRIZES: One (1) prize in the form of a $100.00 Goodwill Easter Seals Minnesota gift card to Goodwill will be awarded each month to the entry selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries. The prize will be delivered by mail to the winner at the address identified in the entry.

WINNER NOTIFICATION: Winner(s) will be notified by mail, email or phone within 48 hours of the drawing.

Winners will be required to acknowledge by phone, or in writing receipt of notification, and will be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility and release and any other prize acceptance documentation that Sponsor provides and return them to Sponsor within ten (10) business days of the date on which it is sent to the winner. If the acknowledgement and signed affidavit and release are not received by Sponsor within ten (10) business days of notification at the address specified in the notification, the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected in a random drawing from the remaining eligible entries for the month. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.
