    All Entries must be received by the end of the Contest Period.  No substitutions or new versions of Entries will be accepted once the original Entry is submitted for consideration.  Any Entry that is considered by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion to violate the Entry Requirements, in whole or in part, may be disqualified and will not be eligible for entry.  Except as otherwise contemplated in these Official Rules, and to the extent entrants may otherwise elect at the time of entry, personal information collected in connection with the Contest will be used in accordance with Sponsor’s privacy policy located at

    The potential winners will be subject to verification and compliance with these Official Rules.  The potential winners will be notified by Twitter direct message using the Twitter account information used by the entrant to enter the Contest.  Potential winners will be required to complete an online form and provide proof of their employment as a teacher.  The Contest Entities shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by the potential winner for any reason. If any potential winner does not respond within the time required by Sponsor, or if the winner notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to any potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit the potential winner’s prize and an alternate winner may be selected.  If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason, such potential winner will be disqualified and the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner.

  5. PRIZES.  There are up to one hundred and seventy (170) prizes available.  Each winner will receive a credit to their Venmo account for the amount of the School Supply Expenses on each winner’s Entry, up to Five Hundred and Ninety-Nine Dollars ($599) per winner.

All portions of the prize(s) are non-assignable and non-transferable. All details that are not described in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
