PRIZE AND WINNER SELECTION
Eligible contestants will be judged by a panel selected by Sponsor. Judging of the Contest entry form responses will begin as soon as the first Contest entry form is received within each respective Daily Contest period (example: the judging for the Daily Contest for the Monday, May 8, 2017 broadcast episode will commence when the first contest entry form is received during the Monday Contest Period, the judging for the Daily Contest for the Tuesday, May 9, 2017 broadcast episode will commence when the first contest entry form is received during the Tuesday Contest Period and so on) and will be based on these criteria: 1) Originality and 2) Creativity. Each of these criteria will be judged on scored scale of 1-5. In the event more than one (1) entry receives the same total score, the judges will re-evaluate and determine which contest entry is superior overall in their sole discretion. All decisions made by Sponsor shall be final and binding relating to the Contest, including the interpretation of the official rules. Sponsor reserves the right to make rules and Contest changes and change Contest dates at any time.
