  5. Winner Selection and Notification.

    1. Winner Selection. All prize winners will be randomly chosen on or about March 1, 2022. After Sponsor receives all eligible entries, Sponsor will group them according to their mailing address provided at entry; each entrant will be put into a group with all other residents from each of Sponsor’s twenty-six (26) Les Schwab marketing regions, described here: Marketing regions include: Central Oregon, Bakersfield, Chico, Redding, Colorado, Eugene, Eureka, Fresno, Inland Empire, Lewiston, Magic Valley, Montana, Portland-Salem-Albany, Reno, Sacramento, San Francisco, Sonoma County, Southern Idaho, Southern Oregon, Spokane, Treasure Valley, Tri-Cities/Yakima, Utah, Western Washington, Wenatchee, Wyoming. Every single entrant will be placed into a group for random winner selection. Then, Sponsor will randomly select two (2) potential winners from each of the twenty-six (26) Les Schwab marketing regions groupings, for a total of fifty-two (52) potential winners. Your chances of winning one of the two prizes awarded for each Les Schwab marketing region depend on the number of entries received from residents of such marketing region group. Sponsor will then group the remaining entrants back into one group and randomly select eighteen (18) additional potential winners from all eligible entries received (less the fifty-two chosen as described above). Your chances of winning this prize depends on the number of entries received from all entrants (less the fifty-two chosen as described above), regardless of their resident marketing region. There will be seventy (70) prize winners in total.

    2. Winner Notification and Response Requirements. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. The potential winners will be notified by email or phone. Once a potential winner is contacted by Sponsor via email or phone, the potential winner will have until March 30, 2022 to respond and claim the prize. If the potential winner does not respond within the timeframe outlined above, or if the prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the prize will be forfeited without notice to the potential winner, and the prize may, in Sponsor’s discretion, be given to an alternate winner, selected via random drawing from all eligible entries received during Promotion Period (less previous winners). Prize award is subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Sponsor may, in its discretion, require that the potential winners complete and return to Sponsor an affidavit of eligibility and release and/or other documentation in order to receive a prize. If such documents are not returned within the timeframe set forth in the paragraph above after prize award notification, the prize will be forfeited without notice to the potential winner, and the prize may, in Sponsor’s discretion, be given to an alternate winner, selected via random drawing from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period (less previous winners).

      REPLYING TO THE PRIZE NOTIFICATION WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY MAKE THE POTENTIAL WINNER AN ACTUAL PRIZE WINNER. EACH POTENTIAL WINNER MUST MEET ALL ELIGIBLY REQUIREMENTS AND OTHERWISE COMPLY WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES.

      The winners might, in Sponsor’s discretion, be announced on Sponsor’s website (www.lesschwab.com), various social media platforms, at Sponsor’s tire centers, and/or in other marketing materials, though this is not how the potential winners will be notified of the prizes.
