Summer Fun Sweepstakes

OFFICIAL RULES

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WINA PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.

The Summer Fun Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”) begins on June 12, 2017 at 12:01PM Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on July 16, 2017 at 11:59PM ET, unless noted otherwise in Schedule A (“Promotion Period”). The time shall be determined by Sponsor’s timekeeping systems, and Sponsor may also rely on the time processing functions of Facebook, as relevant. Sponsor shall have the sole discretion in determining the timeliness of any action or inaction related to this Sweepstakes. All times mentioned in these Official Rules are Eastern Time unless expressly noted otherwise.

Open only to legal U.S. residents who are at least 18 years of age or the age of majority in the state of residence, whichever is older, as of date of entry and reside in the United States and District of Columbia in a Scripps Media Market Geographic Area (“Scripps Market”) as indicated in Attachment A*. Void wherever prohibited by law. Employees of Scripps Media, Inc. (“Sponsor”), their respective affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising and promotion agencies, prize suppliers, including any vendors providing services in connection with this Sweepstakes (collectively, the “Sponsor Affiliates”) and the immediate family members (spouse, mother, father, in-laws, grandmother, grandfather, brother, sister, children and grandchildren) and/or those living in the same household of Sponsor or Sponsor Affiliates are not eligible. By participating, entrants agree to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor.

TO ENTER: During the Promotion Period, go to one of the Entry Site URLs or Entry Site Facebook page URLs (each, an “Entry Site”) listed in Attachment A to these Official Rules and follow the on-screen instructions to enter. Eligible individuals that reside in a Scripps Market are eligible to win the National Prize selected from entrants in all participating Scripps Markets across the U.S. and may also be eligible to win additional Local Prize(s) (each a “Local Prize”), if applicable, selected from entrants in that specific Scripps Market only. If you are eligible to win a particular Local Prize, you must submit your entry through the corresponding Entry Site for the applicable Scripps Market in which you reside. Please see Attachment A to these official rules for a list of Entry Sites, whether a Local Prize is available for each Entry Site, and the Scripps Market eligible for that Local Prize, if any.

All information you provide must be truthful, accurate and complete. Upon successfully submitting your entry to Sponsor as described above you will receive one (1) entry in the Sweepstakes.

Limit one entry per day, per person, per household address and per Facebook page regardless of the Entry Site the entrant uses. No mechanically reproduced entries of any kind permitted. Illegible and incomplete entries are void. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, mutilated, misdirected entries or entries not received. If there is a dispute over who submitted an entry, the entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the Facebook account or email account identified on the entry form. The authorized account holder of an email account is deemed to be the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, service provider, or online organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. The authorized account holder of a Facebook account is deemed to be the natural person who is assigned to a Facebook account by Facebook. Received entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned.

WINNER SELECTION: Winner(s) will be selected by random drawing on or about July 17, 2017, unless otherwise noted in Schedule A, from all eligible entries received. Decisions of Sponsor are final on all matters. Limit one (1) prize per person and per household address and per Facebook account. Odds of winning will depend upon the number of eligible entries received.

WINNER NOTIFICATION AND RELEASES: On or around the Winner Selection Date, Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner(s) via phone and/or email. If a potential winner: (a) does not respond after the first attempted contact from Sponsor within 5 days, (b) is not in compliance with these Official Rules, (c) does not meet the eligibility requirements, (d) declines the prize, or (e) does not sign and return required documents or provide required identification by deadlines established by Sponsor, he or she will be disqualified and the prize awarded to an alternate winner as determined by random draw from the remaining eligible entries. Sponsor will conduct up to two alternate drawings for the prize, time permitting. The potential prize winner(s) may be required to send the Page a private Facebook message to communicate further and asked to provide confirmation that he or she is the owner of the relevant email address and/or Facebook page. Each potential winner may be required, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, to complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility & Liability/Publicity Release (TN residents need not sign Publicity Release) and a scan or photo of legal ID, and also to have any companion(s) who will participate in the prize activities, if applicable, return the same documentation before claiming the prize or being allowed to participate in any prize activities. If any of the potential winner or the companion(s), if applicable, is under the age of majority in his or her state of residence, then the parent or legal guardian of the minor potential winner or companion(s) must sign and return all required forms. All forms must be postmarked within 10 days of the date on notification materials if return is requested via mail or forms must be completed before receipt of any prize if prizes are picked up in person.

 

PRIZE(S): One (1) National Prize – the National Prize winner will receive one (1) Visa® gift card in the amount of $1,000 (ARV: $1,000). 

A list of the Local Prizes, if any, is provided in Attachment A. All Local Prizes are subject to the terms of these Official Rules.

No substitution or transfer/assignment of prize by winners permitted. Subject to all terms, conditions and restrictions on face of tickets, gift cards or imposed by issuer. If by reason of printing or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules, a random drawing will be held to award the advertised number of prizes in the relevant category. All properly claimed prizes will be awarded, but under no circumstances will more than the advertised number of prizes be awarded. Prizes are awarded “AS IS.”

Federal, state, and local taxes on prizes, if any, and any other costs, fees and expenses not listed above as specifically included as part of the prize are the sole responsibility of winner. An IRS form 1099 and other tax-related forms and documents may be issued by Sponsor if required by law.
