You may enter the Sweepstakes during an Entry Period in one (1) of the two (2) following ways: (1) the Program Method or (2) the Entry Form Method. No other method of entry will be accepted. Limit one (1) entry per Child per Entry Period, regardless of method of entry. Additional entries beyond the specified limit will be void. Non-winning eligible entries from one Entry Period Drawing will not carry over to or be eligible for subsequent Entry Periods.

    1. Program Method: A Child may enter the Sweepstakes during an Entry Period by his/her parent/legal guardian or teacher (who has received permission of Child’s parent/legal guardian) registering the Child in the Dodgers Reading Champions program ("Program") by completing the requested information in the online registration form. The Child, with the assistance of his/her parent/legal guardian or teacher, will track the minutes and books the Child reads during such Entry Period, using the online tracking form. The tracking forms completed online will be automatically submitted through the website at www.dodgersreadingchampions.com at the end of the Entry Period. Each eligible Child who tracks at least 450 minutes and no more than 899 minutes of reading time in such Entry Period will be entered into the Level 1 Drawing for that Entry Period. Each eligible Child who tracks 900 or more minutes of reading time in such Entry Period will be entered into the Level 2 Drawing for that Entry Period. Teachers may register their students for the Sweepstakes through the online registration process. They will need to obtain permission from the students’ parent/legal guardian and acknowledge that they have permission when they register. Teachers will be required to enter the students’ parent/legal guardian email address when they register the student.

    2. Entry Form Method: If a Child wishes to enter the Sweepstakes without having to register in the Program or track reading time, he/she may enter the Sweepstakes by visiting the website at www.dodgersreadingchampions.com during an Entry Period and downloading and having his/her parent/legal guardian completing an offline entry form. Child’s parent/legal guardian may submit the entry form by mail to Dodgers Reading Champions Sweepstakes c/o BKFK, 1177 High Ridge Rd., Stamford, CT 06905. All entries mailed must be postmarked by the end of the applicable Entry Period or the next business day should the Entry Period fall on a weekend or holiday. By successfully completing and submitting the entry form as directed, your Child will receive one (1) entry in the Sweepstakes for both the Level 1 Drawing and Level 2 Drawing of the applicable Entry Period. Parents/legal guardians must fully complete and submit all non-optional data requested on the entry form for their Child to be eligible. Incomplete and/or inaccurate entries are void. Entry form entries become the property of Administrator and will not be returned.


5. Sweepstakes Recipient Selection
All entries will be received and recorded by Administrator’s computer. Five (5) to seven (7) days following the end of each Entry Period, Administrator will randomly select five (5) potential winners from among all eligible Program entry method entries received for the Level 1 drawing and all eligible entry form method of entry entries received for the corresponding Entry Period, provided there are at least five (5) eligible entries for that Entry Period; and five (5) potential winners from among all eligible Program entry method entries received for the Level 2 drawing and all eligible entry form method of entry entries received for the corresponding Entry Period, provided there are at least five (5) eligible entries for that Entry Period.

Book titles and responses to readings will not affect odds of winning. The odds of being selected as a potential Level 1 Prize winner of the Sweepstakes depend on the number of eligible Level 1 Program method of entry entries and the total number of eligible entry form method of entry entries received for the corresponding Entry Period; and odds of being selected as a potential Level 2 Prize winner of the Sweepstakes depend on the number of eligible Level 2 Program method of entry entries and the total number of eligible entry form method of entry entries received for the corresponding Entry Period. Administrator will attempt to notify the potential winners’ parent/legal guardian via telephone or email within five (5) days after the corresponding drawing. If a potential winner’s parent/legal guardian cannot be contacted within five (5) days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, Administrator may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries for the applicable Level and Entry Period. Administrator's computer is the official time-keeping device for the Sweepstakes. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the potential winners will be declared the official winners of the Sweepstakes.
