~PRIZES~


1) Each entrant is eligible to win only one prize category. Grand Prize winner will be chosen first, by a random drawing. Once the Grand Prize winner has chosen their prizes, the First Prize winner will be able to choose their prizes, and so on. If a person does not win a category in which they are entered to win, they will be eligible to win other, lower categories. Once a person has been awarded a prize, they will be removed from the drawing to win other categories. Once a prize winner has been chosen they will have 48 hours to select their prize or the prize will be forfeit and another winner chosen.
