One (1) potential winner (“Potential Winner”), whose submission earns the highest overall score from all eligible entries received, will be named for each Entry Pool. In the event of a tie between or among two or more submissions, the judges will reevaluate the tied submissions according to the criteria until the tie is broken.

If you are selected as a Potential Winner, you must, before being declared a winner: (i) if a legal resident of Canada, correctly answer, without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise, a mathematical skill-testing question; and (ii) execute and deliver a Waiver before the deadline provided on the Waiver by the Sponsor and in a form acceptable to the Contest Sponsor, confirming among other things, your compliance with these Official Rules, acceptance of the Prize as awarded without substitution, and releasing the Sponsor and advertising and promotional agencies of the Sponsor and each of their respective subsidiaries and affiliates from any liability in connection with the Contest, your participation therein and/or the awarding and use/misuse of the Prize or any portion thereof.
