Drawing will be conducted by Administrator, an independent judging organization. Administrator will attempt to contact potential winner by phone. Potential winner must respond by telephone within twenty-four (24) hours of the Administrator’s first attempt to contact him/her in order to be eligible to claim the prize. If the potential winner timely responds, Administrator will orally request information from the potential winner to preliminarily confirm eligibility, including potential winner’s availability to attend the 2014 World Finals. If the potential winner is deemed potentially eligible based on his/her responses to the preliminary questions, Administrator will send an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability and, unless prohibited by law, a Publicity Release form (“Affidavit/Release”) to the potential winner by email or facsimile to be executed and returned by email or facsimile within forty-eight (48) hours from the delivery of Administrator’s email or facsimile. Potential winner understands and agrees that an executed email or facsimile version of the Affidavit/Release shall have the same effect as an executed paper copy of same. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within the specified time after the first attempt to contact him/her, if he/she fails to execute and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, or if he/she is otherwise ineligible to receive the prize, such individual will forfeit the prize and an alternate will be selected in his/her place and Administrator will attempt to contact and obtain the required Affidavit/Release from the alternate potential winner. Except where prohibited by law, acceptance of prize constitutes permission for Sponsor to use winner’s name, hometown, likeness, statements and other personally identifiable information for promotional, advertising and marketing purposes in any media throughout the world without additional prize, incentive, consideration, consent or review. Potential winner may be subject to a background investigation at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Potential winner agrees to cooperate fully with Sponsor and its designees with regard to the conduct of the background check, providing all necessary consents, information and/or materials upon request. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify potential winner based on its review of the results of the background check or if potential winner fails to fully cooperate in the conduct of the background check. Should the potential winner be disqualified in conjunction with the background check, he/she will forfeit all rights to the prize and will not receive compensation or an alternate prize of any kind. Sponsor's decisions with regard to the background check are final and binding in all respects. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received for the drawing.

If Entrant chooses to nominate a charity, he/she can nominate as a charity any entity whose mission is to improve society or the public good, or some segment thereof, in some meaningful way (that is, the entity has a bona fide objective OTHER THAN its own profit/commercial gain), regardless of whether the entity has been formally recognized under Internal Revenue Code Sec. 501(c)(3) or other applicable law as a not-for-profit entity. All decisions as to whether an entity ultimately qualifies for nomination and will receive Good Works Charitable Prize will be made by Sponsor/Administrator in their sole discretion, without liability of any kind.

Regardless of whether or not entity nominated by Grand Prize winner receives Good Works Charitable Prize, Grand Prize winner will NOT receive any charitable deduction or tax benefit in conjunction with award of Good Works Charitable Prize. For the avoidance of doubt, while Grand Prize winner will nominate a charity to receive the Good Works Charitable Prize, the final decision as to which charity will receive the Good Works Charitable Prize will be made by Sponsor in its sole discretion and Sponsor (NOT the Grand Prize winner) will donate the Good Works Charitable Prize to charity.
