4) Procedure for Awarding Prizes 

On July 16, 2022, a random draw will be conducted from all eligible entries received during the Contest Period. The first selected contestant will be contacted by email, and requested to answer the mandatory mathematical skill-testing question within 7 days. Should the contestant correctly answer within 7 days, they shall be declared the winner, subject to meeting all the conditions described in these rules. Should the contestant either not answer correctly or not respond within 7 days, another random draw shall be conducted, and the process repeated until a winner is declared. 

It is the responsibility of the winner to redeem their prize, and register the 2 children selected for a camp week each, subject to availability. If the winner fails to do so prior to August 19, 2022 (the last day to register for the last week of summer camp), the prize will be forfeit. For prizes provided by Vara Barn, Vara Barn will reach out to the winner for a mailing address for delivery of items. 

If a winner cannot be reached within 7 days following the first attempt to contact them, incorrectly answers the mathematical skill-testing question, declines the prize, or fails to return the required release form, the prize shall be forfeited and STEM Camp has the right, at its sole discretion, to select another winner.
