The entry must fulfill all listed requirements to be eligible to win a prize. Entry must include a photo, video, drawing, artwork, or other image demonstrating what one can build with Snap Circuits® BRIC: Structures and ordinary building bricks.

On or about January 04, 2019, all eligible entries received during the Campaign Period will be reviewed by a panel of independent judges chosen at Sponsor’s sole discretion (“Judges”). Judges will judge each entry based on the following criteria: creativity (70%) and originality (30%). Subject to verification of compliance with these Rules, the judges will award one (1) Grand Prize Winner and three (3) Runners Up. The odds of winning depend on the number of entries received.

 Winner Notification

The Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential Grand Prize Winner and Three Runners-Up via social media private message by January 07, 2019, asking to submit an email address for further communication. If the potential Grand Prize Winner and/or any of the Three Runners-Up cannot be contacted within five (5) business days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her/them, or if any potential winner is disqualified for any reason, the Sponsor may select alternate potential winners. The alternate Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the pool of potential Runners-Up and any and all alternate Runners-Up will be selected from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries.

Each potential Grand Prize Winner and Runner Up will be required to complete, electronically sign and submit a Declaration of Compliance and liability/publicity release (except where prohibited by law) within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted or fails to submit the Declaration of Compliance and liability/publicity release within the required time period (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner shall forfeit the prize. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Campaign.
