Official Contest Rules (the "Rules")

The Contest is intended to be conducted in Canada only and shall be construed according to applicable Canadian law. Entry in the Contest constitutes acceptance of these Contest Rules.

1. Who Can Enter. The Studentawards “My School Year’s Resolution” Contest (the “Contest”) is open to any person who is 13 years of age and older at time of entry, who is a studentawards.com or boursetudes.com member, and who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, residing in Canada, on the Contest Closing Date. Void in whole or in part where prohibited by law. Studentawards Inc. (the “Sponsor”) and each of the individuals associated with the Contest, including the Sponsor’s employees, directors, officers, agents, representatives, promotional and marketing agencies, and any member of the immediate families of any of the foregoing and other individuals with whom any of the foregoing are domiciled, are not eligible to participate in the Contest.

2. Contest Period. The Contest begins on Wednesday August 3, 2011 at 11:59 a.m. (EST) and ends on Wednesday August 31 at 11:59 a.m. (EST) (the "Contest Closing Time") (the “Contest Period”).

3. How to Enter. No purchase necessary. To enter the draw, a Studentawards member must complete a “Contest Entry” by submitting one (1) valid post to the Studentawards Forum (http://www.studentawards.com/Forum.aspx) in the Contest thread (http://www.studentawards.com/forum.aspx?g=posts&t=8370) sharing their resolution for the 2011-2011 school year . A fully and correctly completed Entry post received by Studentawards Inc. within the Contest Period will generate a valid Contest Entry. A post that is incomplete, illegible, damaged or irregular, or that contains false or offensive information, as determined by the Sponsor, will not generate a valid Contest Entry.

Any person who created or attempts to create a false membership will result in all of that person's Contest Entries to be ruled ineligible, will be disqualified automatically from the Contest, and Studentawards Inc. reserves the right to ban or disqualify such person from entering future studentawards.com contests.

4. Prizes. There will be five (5) Prizes awarded in the Contest, each consisting of One Hundred Canadian Dollars (Cdn $100.00). Each of the five winners will be selected randomly at the end of the Contest Period. Any costs associated with the Prize are the responsibility of the winner. The Sponsor will not be responsible or liable for any possible damages or injuries that may occur as a result of the use of a Prize. To be declared a winner, the selected entrant will be required to sign a release, waiver of liability and indemnity in favour of Sponsor.
Odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible participants who enter the Contest, and the number of Contest Entries submitted during the Contest Period. Entries will not be eligible if not entered in accordance with these Contest Rules above or if not entered during the Contest Period.
Total Contest Prize Value: $500.00 Canadian.

(b) Prize may not be transferred or assigned except if expressly consented to by Sponsor.

(e) Other restrictions may apply.

6. Contest Draw Dates. There will be one (1) Contest Draw Date, on or around September 7, 2011 between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. (EST), in Toronto, Ontario:
(i) Five (5) Contest Entries will be drawn at random from all eligible Contest Entries received during the contest period in accordance with these Official Rules and under direct supervision of the judges, whose decisions regarding this Contest are final in all respects.

7. How to Win. Sponsor will attempt to contact the selected entrants (or if the selected entrant is a minor, his or her legal guardian) on or about each of the Contest Draw Dates (each, a “Contact Date”), by e-mail or telephone, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, from the information provided by that selected entrant in his or her Contest registration, as evidenced by a verbal confirmation or return e-mail from the selected entrant.
In order to be confirmed as a winner in this Contest, a selected entrant must have complied with and remain in compliance with these Contest Rules, and must first correctly answer (or if the selected entrant is a minor, his or her legal guardian must correctly answer) without assistance of any kind, a time-limited, mathematical, skill-testing question to be administered at a pre-arranged time by telephone.
In addition to the foregoing, in order to claim a Prize, the selected entrant must have reached the age of majority in their Province of residence on or beforeWednesday August 3, 2011. If a selected entrant of a Prize is over 13 years of age but under the age of majority in his/her Province of residence, the Prize will be awarded to the parent or legal guardian of such person, who must accept the Prize on the individual’s behalf. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the age of any selected entrant.
In order to receive a Prize, a selected entrant:
(i) (or if the selected entrant is a minor, his or her legal guardian) must complete, sign and return a standard declaration, indemnity and release form, confirming understanding and compliance with the Contest Rules and acceptance of the Contest Prize as awarded, and a Release, in a form satisfactory to the Sponsor, releasing Sponsor, and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives of all liability arising out of the Contest, including without limitation, the selection of any Prize winner, the administration of the Contest, and the acceptance or the use of any or all of the Prizes as awarded.
(ii) must return all such forms to Sponsor within five (5) days of receipt of the forms by the selected entrant.
Should a selected entrant not be reached by the Contact Date, for any reason, including, but not limited to, the fact that a selected entrant did not provide a functioning e-mail address or valid telephone number, or if that selected entrant is unable to answer the skill-testing question or does not meet all of the Contest conditions, the Prize shall be automatically forfeited by that selected entrant. In such event, another draw shall then be conducted where one (1) entry will be drawn at random from among all remaining eligible entries received during the Contest Period. A Sponsor employee will attempt to contact the new selected entrant within one (1) business day of the time at which such entrant was selected, by email or telephone, and subject to the same conditions as set out in this clause and in these Contest Rules. This process will be repeated until a selected entrant is declared the Contest winner of such Prize, or until no Contest Entries remain. No communication will be entered into except with the selected entrants.

8. By entering the Contest, the Contest winner consents to the use of his or her name, city of residence, voice, photograph, video, statements and/or likeness, without additional compensation or permission, except where prohibited by law, in any publicity or advertising in any medium throughout the world in perpetuity carried by or on behalf of Sponsor, its agencies and affiliates.
