Each criterion will count for one-half of the total score.

TWO (2) PRIZES: Each prize winner will receive four (4) tickets (for the prize winner and three (3) guests) to a WWE live event in the prize winner’s local area (within 100 miles of winner’s residence), including a meet and greet with a WWE Superstar or WWE Diva (the “Event”) (the exact WWE Event, Event location, seat locations, identity of WWE Superstar or WWE Diva, and date selected by WWE in its sole discretion), a WWE t-shirt, and a WWE Community Champions certificate. In addition, WWE may, at its option, choose to spotlight the prize winners in WWE Kids Magazine and/or on wwe.com. Approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the prize: $225, each.
If an Event is not scheduled to take place in the prize winner’s local area within one (1) year of winner’s confirmation as a prize winner, WWE will substitute the stated prize with another prize of comparable or greater value in its sole discretion. Note that WWE may not know the schedule of events for the full year at the time a prize winner is confirmed. In such case, WWE will contact the prize winner once an Event is scheduled in the winner’s local area. All prize winners must be accompanied to the Event by a parent or legal guardian, who must attend the Event at his or her own expense, unless such parent or legal guardian is among the prize winner’s chosen guests. In all cases, the prize winner’s guests, or the parent/legal guardian of any guest who is a minor in his or her state of residence, will be required to sign a Liability and Publicity Release (except where prohibited by law).
All expenses not specified in these Official Rules, including, without limitation, taxes, insurance, transportation, food and beverages, souvenirs and other expenses are solely each prize winner’s responsibility.
OTHER CONSIDERATIONS: The parent/legal guardian of each prize winner will be required to complete and sign an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release and, where legal, a Publicity Release, and any other documentation that Sponsor may require and to see to it that the Sponsor is in receipt of these documents within seven (7) days of having received the same. In all cases, Sponsor reserves the right to request proof of residency, age and parenthood or guardianship, and a winner will be deemed to have forfeited the prize if Sponsor, in its discretion, finds that the proof is unsatisfactory. If a prize winner does not timely return requisite documents, or in the event of non-compliance with any of the requirements of these Official Rules, the prize will be forfeited and the next highest scoring entry will be named a winner and confirmed in accordance with these Official Rules. Prizes may not be substituted, transferred or redeemed for cash, except by Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute prize with prize of comparable or greater value in its discretion.
