For each Entry Period Sponsor will telephone three (3) potential Sweepstakes winners during the live broadcast currently scheduled for 4:00 p.m. ET (date/time of broadcast are approximate). During each live broadcast, the potential Sweepstakes winners will take part in a live game in which one (1) person will win the On-Air Grand Prize and two (2) people will win the First Prize. Calls may take place live on television and an entrant’s voice may be broadcast, and first name, state and hometown disclosed, live on air.

Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. any play that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed a defective play and is void and will not be honored.

7. Verification of Potential Winners: Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. The potential Sweepstakes winners will be notified by mail, email or phone. Any potential winner who entered by participating in a Super Challenge will receive an email from the Sponsor and must respond to the email within twenty-four (24) hours in order to be eligible to receive the prize. If potential winner fails to respond to the email within the required time period, potential winner forfeits the prize. Any potential winner who entered via text-messaging will be notified by phone and/or text message at the phone number of the text-messaging device used to enter the Promotion. Each potential On-Air Grand Prize and Final Grand Prize winner (parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to complete, sign, and return a Declaration of Compliance ("Declaration") within seventy-two (72) hours of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. The potential Final Grand Prize winner (parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will also be required to complete, sign, and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release, an Appearance Release, and a Location Release, which must be received by Sponsor within seventy-two (72) hours or prize will be forfeited. Potential winners of any prize who entered via text-messaging will receive instructions on how to claim their prize.

If a potential Sweepstakes Prize winner cannot be contacted, is unavailable when called during a live broadcast, or fails to sign and return the Declaration within the required time period (if applicable), or any other required documentation within the required time period, potential winner forfeits prize. If a potential winner of any prize fails to complete the online fulfillment form within seventy-two (72) hours from the time first notified (applicable to entrants via text-message only), potential winner forfeits prize. In the event that a potential winner of an On-Air Grand Prize, Final Grand Prize, or First Prize is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.
