About the Prize: How to Enter

1. Register:
You may enter as an individual or as a team of up to five (5) members. Each person participating in the Contest, whether individually or as part of a team, is considered an “entrant” and must be at least 18 years old and registered on the contest site. Registration includes agreeing to the Rules, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy.

2. Submit an Entry:
Once your registration is completed, you will receive a username and password to access your account on the Contest web site. That’s where you’ll find the Prize Entry Form to complete and submit your entry.

You can submit your entry first in “draft mode,” so changes are possible until the end of the contest. Once the entry is submited as “final,” further changes cannot be made. All entries become final when the contest ends at midnight on Friday, March 11, 2011.

Check out the Rules about submitting additional materials as an appendix. Remember, the judges will be looking for materials that will help make the case for your entry to win.
