Weekly Prizes

Weekly Prizes will be awarded to a participant once per week for twelve months. To be eligible for the contest, the winner must respond to the contest question received via text and, if applicable, provide the correct answer. If the question is open-ended, any response will suffice, as long as the response is relevant to the question and includes no profanity, racial/ethnic slurs, slander or hate. Participants must respond to the question within the designated time period, as indicated in the texted contest question, to be eligible for the Prize. One Prize winner will be randomly selected each month from the pool of respondents who meet the aforementioned eligibility criteria. The weekly Prize consists of one $25.00 Visa gift card. The approximate value of each Prize is $25.00. After a participant has won a weekly Prize, she/he is no longer eligible to win additional weekly Prizes for the duration of the program. Weekly prizes will be awarded within one month of notifying the winner.

Winning individuals will be notified via text message. Winners must claim Prizes within ten (10) days of winning (the “Deadline”). If a winning individual fails either to claim the Prize or inform EyesOpenIowa of her/his inability to claim the Prize before the deadline, the Prize will be forfeited.

Prizes must be accepted as awarded. No portion of any Prize is transferable. No substitute for any portion of any Prize is offered. EyesOpenIowa, Contest sponsor, and their respective advertising, public relations and promotional agencies reserve the right to substitute any Prize or any component thereof for those of approximately the same value, and reserve the right to change the Contest rules or terminate or withdraw the Contest at any time, without prior notice.
