- Drawing and Notification of Potential Winners: For each daily sweepstakes, one (1) potential winner will be randomly selected from among all eligible Sweepstakes Entries received for that particular daily sweepstakes in a drawing. Non-winning Sweepstakes Entries will NOT be retained for the subsequent daily sweepstakes drawings. Overall Prize winner will be randomly selected from among all verified daily sweepstakes winners in a drawing. All drawings will be conducted by the Sweepstakes administrator, an independent judging organization, at its offices in Burbank, California USA. All daily sweepstakes drawings will be held on or about November 11, 2016. Overall prize drawing will be held after all daily sweepstakes winners have been verified and declared official. Each potential winner (or his/her parent/legal guardian if he/she is a resident of a jurisdiction that deems him/her to be a minor) will be notified by phone within two (2) weeks of being selected in a drawing. If a potential winner cannot be reached after a reasonable effort has been exerted, if he/she is found to be ineligible, if he/she cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, or if his/her prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, such potential winner will be disqualified, and an alternate potential winner for such prize may be selected at Sponsor’s sole discretion.

The test will be administered by the Sweepstakes administrator at a pre-arranged mutually-convenient time, and only if the question is answered correctly in the allotted time period will the Canadian entrant become a potential prize winner. If the question is not correctly answered in the allotted time period, prize will be forfeited and will be awarded to an alternate prize winner.
