You must accurately complete the form. Once completed, participants will be officially entered in the Sweepstakes, for the entire Sweepstakes Period.  Participants may enter via this method only once each day during the Sweepstakes Period. Entrants who share the Sweepstakes link on their Facebook page, may also earn one bonus entry for every Facebook friend who enters after entrant (up to a total of five entries the Sweepstakes) for every individual who enters after you by following the link in your post. No more than one person will receive credit for any individual who enters, and any disputes as to who referred an entrant will be resolved in the sole discretion of Sponsor. Any question any entrant has about the Sweepstakes should be directed to Sponsor and not to Facebook. All received entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, or logins or software generated entries, robotic entries, other automated process, or third-party entry service will void those entries and such entrant may be disqualified. If there is a dispute as to the identity or eligibility of a winner based on an email address, the entry will be deemed made by the “Authorized Account Holder” of the email address used for entry. The Authorized Account Holder is the natural person who is assigned to the email address by the relevant Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the corresponding domain. The information that you provide in connection with the Sweepstakes will be used by Sponsor in accordance with its Privacy Policy, which is found at privacy.tribune.com and which may be updated from time to time.
  2. Winner Selection: Every Tuesday during the Sweepstakes Period, one winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entries received by the close of that Weekly Entry Period by a member of Sponsor’s staff after 9:00 AM CT.  Odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible entries received for each drawing. Winner is subject to verification and compliance with these Official Rules.   Only one prize per person, household, or email address allowed. Eligible, non-winning entries will carry over from one Weekly Entry Period to the other.
  3.

Winners must have a valid email address and phone number where they can be notified, or Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize to another winner.  A potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries for that drawing if: (a) winner does not respond within 72 hours of first notification attempt; (b) a winner does not fulfill the eligibility requirements; (c) a winner does not adhere to the Official Rules; (d) a winner does not sign and return required documents and provide required identification by the deadlines established by Sponsor; and/or (e) if the prize notification is returned as undeliverable, refused, or declined.
