GameChanger Media’s GameChanger of the Year

ELIGIBILITY:  The GameChanger Media GameChanger of the Year Contest (“Contest”) is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry.  Employees of Sponsor, participating vendors (if any), their respective parent companies, affiliates, and subsidiaries, and their respective participating advertising, promotions, and public relations agencies as well as members of their families and/or those living in the same household as such individuals are not eligible to enter.  The Contest is (a) governed by these Official Rules, (b) void where prohibited or restricted by law, and (c) subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations.  You must have access to the Internet and a valid email address in order to enter.  By entering, you agree that you have read and consent to be bound by these Official Rules, and Sponsor’s privacy policy, available here.  You must have access to the Internet and a valid email address in order to enter.  Eligibility is conditioned on the acceptance of these Official Rules at time of entry.
HOW TO ENTER:  The Promotion begins on December 5, 2022 at 9 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends December 16, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET (“Contest Period”), and is designed to give eligible entrants the opportunity to recognize someone in the community who goes above and beyond to give back to youth sports, whether it's a coach, parent or volunteer, to win Prizes in accordance with these Official Rules.  To enter, visit (the “Website”) to complete and submit an official Contest entry (each a “Submission”).
Limit one Submission per person.  Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, or misdirected entries, all of which are void.  Sponsor’s computer is the official clock.
SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: Each Submission must include an online written submission explaining why the individual nominated is deserving of this award.
WINNER SELECTION: A panel of judges (the “Judges”) will review the Submissions based on the following weighted judging criteria: (A) The individual who made the most significant positive difference in their youth sports community or most enhanced the lives of youth athletes [65%], (B) The individual whose action showed the most courage and inspiration [25%], and (C) the Submission’s written quality and persuasiveness [10%].   The one (1) Submission that achieves the highest overall scores from the Judges will be awarded the Prize. In the event of a tie, the Submission among the tied entries with the highest score from the Judges in “courage and inspiration” will be deemed the winner. All winners are subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Decisions of Sponsor and Judges are final and binding. Potential winners will be contacted by telephone, email, or US mail, in Sponsor’s sole discretion.
PRIZES: The winning Submission will receive the following prizes (the “Prizes”), one for the nominee and one for the nominator: a one-year subscription to GameChanger Premium (approximate retail value (“ARV”) $60.00 USD x 2 = $120.00 USD, a GameChanger Live Streaming Mounting Kit (ARV $50.00 USD x 2 = $100.00 USD), and a Mevo camera (ARV $400.00 USD x 2 = $800.00).  Total ARV: $510.00 USD.  Odds of winning a Prize depend on the number of eligible Submissions received during the Contest Period and the nature of those Submissions.  Any Prize details not specified above will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION:  Prizes are not transferable. Taxes on Prizes are sole responsibility of winning nominator and/or nominee (together, the “Winners”).  No Prize substitutions or cash redemptions allowed, except by Sponsor, who may substitute a Prize of equal or greater value if advertised Prize becomes unavailable.  Sponsor shall not be held responsible for any delays in awarding the Prize or any component thereof for any reason.  Entry into this Contest constitutes entrant’s agreement to be bound by the terms of these Official Rules and by the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding on all matters pertaining to this Contest.
Sponsor will attempt to contact the person who submitted the Submission via the contact information on the Submission, and Sponsor must respond to that notification within 48 hours.  Potential Winners may be required to sign and return Affidavits of Eligibility/Liability & Publicity Release and Confidentiality Agreements within 48 hours following the date of first attempted notification.  Failure of both potential Winners to timely comply with this requirement, to the extent required by Sponsors, may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winning Submission.  In the event that any prize notification message is returned as undeliverable or if no response to the prize notification message is received within the time period stated or if either of the potential Winners is found ineligible or not in full compliance with these Official Rules, the Prizes may, in the Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, be forfeited and awarded to the Submission with the next highest score.  If Sponsor is unable to confirm a winner after notifying the nominators for Submissions, the Prize may not be awarded.  If the confirmed Winners forfeit any portion of the Prizes for any reason after confirmation, no alternate winners will be selected.   In no event will more than one (1) set of Prizes be awarded. If, for any reason, more than one (1) prize notification is sent (or more than one (1) claim is received), Sponsor reserves the right to award the prizes through a random drawing from among all eligible prize claims received.  Failure by the Sponsor to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
RELEASE:  By participating in the Contest and/or accepting any portion of the Prizes, Winners agree to release Sponsor, participating vendors (if any), and each of their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, related companies and advertising, promotion and public relations agencies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents (“Released Parties”) from any and all liability, loss or damage of any kind arising out of or in connection with their participation in this Contest or with respect to awarding, receipt, possession, use and/or misuse of any Prize.  The Released Parties are not responsible for any typographical or other error in the printing of the offer, administration of the Contest, or in the announcement of the prize.  An entrant may be prohibited from participating in this Contest if, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, it reasonably believes that the entrant has attempted to undermine the legitimate operation of this Contest by cheating, deception, or other unfair playing practices or annoys, abuses, threatens or harasses any other entrants, Released Parties, or associated agencies or entities.
DISPUTES: Except where prohibited, entrant and Winners agree that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Contest or any Prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these Official Rules, entrant's rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Contest, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
ELIMINATION:  Any false information provided within the context of the Contest by any entrant concerning identity, postal address, telephone number, ownership of right or noncompliance with these Official Rules or the like may result in the immediate elimination of the entrant from the Contest. 
WAIVER:  Entrants hereby waive all rights to: (i) claim punitive, exemplary, special, incidental, indirect and consequential damages and any other damages (whether due to negligence or otherwise), other than for actual out-of-pocket costs; and (ii) have damages multiplied or otherwise increased.
LIMIT OF LIABILITY:  If, for any reason, the Contest is not capable of running as planned, including infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, act of God, or any other causes which corrupt or otherwise affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of this Contest, Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Contest or any portion thereof at any time, and for any reason without further obligation or advance notice.  Sponsor reserves the right, but does not have any obligation, to select winners from eligible entries received as of the termination date. Sponsor further reserves the right to disqualify any individual who tampers with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or acts in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner.
SEVERABILITY:  If any provision(s) of these Official Rules are held to be invalid or unenforceable, all remaining provisions hereof will remain in full force and effect.
