HOW TO ENTER THE CONTEST: Eligible participants (each, an “Entrant”) can enter by submitting a completed online entry form available here. Only one entry per school building will be accepted. Participation in the "Edmentum Summer Academic Sprints” ("Contest") constitutes Entrant's full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and by the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding in all respects. All submissions and supplemental resources must be original and must therefore contain no third party material. Entries must be submitted by July 31, 2016 at 11:59 PM CDT for participation.
TIME PERIOD: The contest will begin at 12:00 a.m. Central Daylight Time (CDT) on June 1, 2016, and end at 11:59 p.m. CDT on July 31, 2016. This constitutes the "Contest Period."
ELIGIBILITY: The Contest is open to all current Study Island school and district customers of Sponsor until July 31, 2016 that operate Kindergarten – 12th Grade schools. A minimum of 10 students per school building must participate during the Contest Period to be eligible. Employees, officers and directors of Sponsor, or Sponsor’s affiliates, subsidiaries, agents or advertising and promotion agencies ("Released Parties"), as well as the immediate family members (parents, children, siblings, spouses) or persons living in the same household (whether related or not) of the Released Parties are not eligible to participate in the Contest. All federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply. The contest is subject to all application laws and void where prohibited, taxed or restricted by law.
WINNER SELECTION: Entries will be separated and judged according to the following three grade spans: Elementary School (Kindergarten – 5th Grade), Middle School (6th-8th Grade), and High School (9th-12th Grade). One grand prize winning school and student will be chosen from a compiled list of total entrants from the contest. Within each of the three grade spans there will be one school prize winner and one student prize winner. The winning schools will be selected based upon the total number of unique Blue Ribbons earned in Study Island divided by the total number of students from the school that participated in this contest. The school from each grade span with the highest average number of unique Blue Ribbons earned per student will be designated a winning school. The student from each grade span that individually earns the most unique Blue Ribbons in Study Island will be selected as a winning student. Blue Ribbons are earned based on Study Island default passing goals (70%). Only unique Blue Ribbons will be counted towards contest totals. Custom content and open-ended questions will be excluded. To the extent that more than one student earns the same number of unique Blue Ribbons, the winning student will be determined by the highest percentage of questions answered correctly in Study Island. In the event of a tie among schools based on the above criteria, the winning school will be chosen based on the percent of questions answered correctly in Study Island.
PRIZES: The three winning schools (one designated from each grade span) will receive a $250 credit toward future Sponsor product licensing purchases or renewals. The grand prize winning school will receive ten Chromebooks and $250 in Edmentum credit. The three winning students will each win a $100 Amazon.com gift card. The grand prize student will receive $100 Amazon.com gift card and one Chromebook. The prizes must be claimed by August 31, 2016, or prizes will be forfeited and no compensation will be awarded. There are no substitutions unless specified by the Sponsor. The Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to substitute any prize with another prize of equal or greater value. Edmentum credit may be used as a single credit against the amount owed Edmentum by the winning schools for its Edmentum product subscription.
