Prizes: Five $20,000 “grants” toward the purchase of playground equipment. The $20,000 “grants” consist of the following:
- $13,000 grant from KaBOOM!
- $7,000 grant from a KaBOOM! Preferred Vendor
To be eligible to receive the grants, winners must choose one of the KaBOOM! Preferred Vendors (kaboom.org/vendors) for the promotion and must build their new playground with the chosen vendor no later than Tuesday, June 26, 2018. “Qualifying Equipment Orders” must meet the standards of the KaBOOM! Preferred Vendor as chosen by the winner. In order to qualify, projects will need to purchase a minimum of $24,000 in playground equipment. Playground projects not completed by Tuesday, June 26, 2018 will forfeit the grant in its entirety.
The winner will be notified by phone, email and/or overnight courier at Sponsor’s sole discretion, and will be required to complete an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release and (where legal) a publicity release, which must be returned within the time period specified in notification letter, or an alternate winner may be selected. If the winner is 18 years or older, as is required for entry, but not of the age of majority in his or her state of residence, the prize will either be awarded in the name of a parent or legal guardian, or a parent or legal guardian must ratify and sign any and all documents required of the winner. Inability to contact a winner or the return of any prize notification as undeliverable will result in the prize being forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner selected from the remaining eligible entries.
No substitutions for the prize or any of its elements shall apply, except at the election of Sponsor or as may be necessary due to unavailability. In such a case, a prize of comparable or greater value will be awarded. The prize is not transferable, assignable, or redeemable for cash. Sponsor is responsible only for prize delivery; not responsible for prize utility, quality or otherwise. In the event that any prize component is unavailable for any reason, the remaining elements of the prize shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsor’s obligation to the winner and no additional compensation will be awarded. Any unclaimed and/or unused portion of the prize package will be forfeited and will not be substituted.
