WETA will not be responsible for incomplete, illegible, lost, late, or misdirected entries or for failure to receive entries due to transmission failures or technical failures of any kind, including, without limitation, malfunctioning of any network, hardware or software, whether originating with sender or sponsor. In the event of a dispute, all email or electronic entries will be deemed to have been submitted by the owner of the email account from which they were sent. For these purposes, an email account holder shall mean the natural person assigned to such email account by the Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with such email account. Any questions regarding the number of entries submitted or the owner of an email account shall be determined by WETA in its sole, reasonable discretion. WETA reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons determined to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Giveaway.

3. ELIGIBILITY: Giveaway is open only to residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia with a valid email address who are 18 years of age or older at time of entry. Giveaway is not open to employees or interns of the Greater Washington Educational Telecommunications Association, Inc. ("WETA"), and the company's respective affiliates and subsidiaries, and the immediate family members of, and any persons domiciled with, such employees or interns.

4. PRIZES: Thirteen (13) Giveaway winners will be selected on or about November 16, 2020 in a random drawing from all eligible entries. One grand-prize winner will receive an Apple 10.2-Inch iPad with Wi-Fi 32 GB (approximate retail value: $299.00). Six (6) runners up will receive a Roku Ultra Streaming Media Player (approximate retail value: $79.99). Six (6) runners up will receive a 4th Generation Echo Dot smart speaker (approximate retail value: $59.99). The approximate retail value of the prizes represents WETA’s good faith determination.

No substitutions allowed, except that prizes and individual components of prize packages are subject to availability and WETA reserves the right to substitute prizes of equal or greater value. The winner is solely responsible for reporting and payment of any taxes on prizes. The winner may be required to complete an affidavit of eligibility, and a liability and publicity release (except where prohibited by law) which must be returned within 14 days of date of postmark. Failure to sign and return the affidavit or release within 14 days, or to comply with any term or condition of these Official Rules, may, at the sole discretion of WETA, result in a winner's disqualification, the forfeiture of winner’s interest in the prize, and the award of prize to an alternate winner. Except where prohibited, participation in the Giveaway constitutes entrant's consent to the publication of his or her name and image in any media for any commercial or promotional purpose, without limitation or further compensation.
