By participating, you agree to these Official Rules and to the decisions of the judges, which are final and binding in all respects.

3. HOW TO ENTER:

To enter, participants must provide the the required information (including contact information, such as a valid daytime phone number and e-mail address) on the designated contest forms on RDC's website or RDC's social media platforms. Although online access and an e-mail account are required in order to participate in this contest, no purchase is necessary.

4. ENTRY RESTRICTIONS:

LIMIT one (1) entry per contestant and/or email address allowed, per individual giveaway or contest.

5. PRIZES:

Prizes for each Contest vary, but could include gift certificates for RDC entities (including for the Campus Store or FarSide Bar & Grill), tuition vouchers for RDC's programs and courses, and gift certificates or packages for external organizations. 

Prizes will be identified for each individual Contest, to provide awareness for participants.

6. ODDS OF WINNING:

The odds of winning are dependent upon the number of eligible entries received prior to the draw deadline for individual Contests.

7. NOTIFICATION AND AWARDING OF PRIZES:

By participating in the Contest, entrants consent to the use of their personal information (i.e. name, photograph and/or likeness, voice, or statements) for publicity purposes in all media produced by Red Deer College without further compensation, and a declaration confirming compliance with the official contest rules.

The winner will be contacted by phone or email, using the email address provided by entrant on RDC's website or RDC's social media platforms. 

To receive a prize, winners are required to produce photo identification, complete a Prize Verification Pick-Up form, and answer a mathematical Skill Testing Question without mechanical or other aid. For winners 16 or 17 years of age, parental consent is required on receipt of award.

If the prize winner cannot be contacted via telephone, email or social media within ten (10) business days, the unclaimed prize shall lapse and a new prize winner shall be drawn.

Prizes will only be awarded upon winner validation and verification.

If a selected entrant is unable or unwilling to comply with these contest rules, the entry will be disqualified and another will be randomly drawn from the remaining eligible entries.

All entries become the property of RDC and will not be returned. Communication will only be entered into with the potential winners. RDC reserves the right, at its option, to publish any winner's name, photograph and/or likeness, voice, or statements without further compensation to the winner.
