Odds of winning the Challenge will depend on the total number of participants and the level of participation at the Conference of each participant.  The approximate retail value of all prizes is $1707.00.

Limit one prize per person for the Challenge.  Prizes are awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied by SUBTA.  Winners are responsible for all applicable federal, state, local and other tax liabilities, including but not limited to, sales and use taxes, excise taxes, income and withholding taxes, customs duties, fees and like amounts in connection with a prize.  SUBTA is not responsible for any such taxes or expenses.  A Form 1099 may be submitted to all appropriate taxing authorities if total prizes received by a participant is $600 or more.

5. Potential Winner Notification: SUBTA will notify each potential prize recipient by e-mail (at the e-mail address provided by the participant when registering for the Virtual Conference).  In the event SUBTA is unable to contact a potential winner despite reasonable efforts to do so, as determined by SUBTA’s sole discretion, such potential winner’s prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be chosen by SUBTA.

The e-mail notification will include a link that contains a copy of a Release and Eligibility Agreement (the “Claim Form”) and other information required to claim the prize.  All completed, un-amended claim forms must be received by SUBTA within ten (10) business days after it is e-mailed to the potential winner (“Submission Deadline”).  All completed Claim Forms become the property of SUBTA and will be verified by SUBTA.  In order to claim a prize, each potential winner must complete the claim form which includes representations of eligibility, compliance and release of liability and publicity release.  Among other things, the submission of the Claim Form confirms compliance with these rules, acceptance of the prize as awarded, agreement to maintain confidentiality until winners are announced by SUBTA, and release of certain parties from any losses, liabilities, damages or claims arising from or related to the prize awarded and the Challenge itself.  If a potential winner fails to submit the Claim Form with all information required by the Submission Deadline, SUBTA reserves the right to disqualify the potential winner, and SUBTA shall be fully and completely released and discharged from any liability or responsibility in this regard.

If a potential winner cannot prove he or she is a qualified winner, the prize will not be awarded.  If a potential winner declines the prize, another winner with the next highest score may be selected based on the judging criteria.

6. Release.  By entering the Challenge, each participant agrees: (a) to abide by these rules and the decisions of SUBTA, which shall be final and binding in all respects; and (b) to release and hold harmless SUBTA, its subsidiaries and affiliates and the franchisees and affiliated merchants of each of the foregoing, all prize suppliers, all agents or representatives of the foregoing, including without limitation their advertising and promotional agencies, and each of their respective officers, directors and employees (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from any and all claims, liability, loss or damage whatsoever arising with respect to the Promotion or the awarding, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of any Promotion prize and further acknowledges that none of the foregoing persons have made nor are responsible or liable for any warranty, representation or guarantee a particular purpose thereof.

SUBTA is not responsible for printing errors in the Challenge materials or these official rules.  If, due to a production or printing error or other unforeseen error, there are more winners than prizes for any level, SUBTA reserves the right to award any remaining prizes for that level through a random drawing of all eligible winners for that level.  No more than the number of prizes listed herein will be awarded.
