To enter the Sweepstakes without completing a survey, clearly print your name, participating institution, daytime phone number and a working, valid email address for which you are the authorized user, on a piece of paper and mail it in a #10, business envelope with first class postage to: “Aramark Your Voice Counts K-12”, c/o The Marketing Agency, PO Box 11919, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33339-1919 postmarked by Sweepstakes-End and received by seven (7) days later.

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP YOUR PHONE NUMBER AND EMAIL ADDRESS CURRENT, AS IT IS TO THAT NUMBER AND/OR EMAIL ADDRESS THAT A PRIZE NOTIFICATION WILL BE COMMUNICATED. An email “Authorized user” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet mail service, Internet access provider, online service provider or organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the email address. In the case of a dispute regarding who submitted a particular online entry, the entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the email account. Online entries must be made by an individual from a stand-alone computer device and may not be made by proxy or any electronic/automated means such as script, bot, macro or any other similar software or program. You may not enter with multiple emails and/or multiple identities nor may you use any other device or artifice to obtain more than one (1) entry into each Sweepstakes. All discovered entries made in violation of these rules will be deleted and be deemed ineligible to participate in the drawings. All entries submitted become the property of Sponsor and none will be acknowledged or returned.

5.        Winner Selection: One (1) potential Grand Prize winner from each of the four (4) participating regions will be chosen in separate, random drawings approximately 30 days after each Sweepstakes-End from all eligible online entries from a particular region received during the Sweepstakes Period and mail-in entries postmarked by Sweepstakes-End and received up to seven (7) days later. Potential winners will be notified by phone or email, in Sponsor’s/Administrator’s discretion to the phone number or email address entered on the survey. The notification will require the potential winner to respond within five (5) days with a valid mailing address and agreeing to accept the prize. Prizes won by a minor will require a completed Parent/Guardian Consent Form. Each prizewinner (or parent or guardian in the case of a minor) will be required to claim his/her prize within seven (7) business days of notification or it will be concluded definitively that the prize has been declined and, without further notice, an alternative winner may be selected in another random drawing. Failure to respond within that timeframe will indicate to Administrator that the prize has been declined for all time and another potential winner will be selected in random drawings. Neither Sponsor nor Administrator is responsible for electronic communications which are undeliverable as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any kind or insufficient space in entrant's email or phone account to receive messages. Only one (1) prize will be awarded in each participating region in each Sweepstakes.

Odds of winning: Dependent on the number of eligible entries received during each Sweepstakes Period and mail-in entries postmarked by Sweepstakes-End and received up to seven (7) days later in each participating region. A prize will be awarded provided it is claimed properly according to these Official Rules.
