Limit one (1) entry per entrant for each tier level of this Sweepstakes for which such entrant is eligible for the duration of this Sweepstakes (i.e., no entrant may win more than one (1) prize for any tier level, but it is possible for a single entrant to win one (1) prize for each separate tier level for which such entrant is eligible). Entries received from any person in excess of the limit will be void. Any attempt to use multiple accounts or other tactics to enter more than the limit may result in the disqualification by Sponsor of entrant from this Sweepstakes and all associated entries will be void.

False, fraudulent, or deceptive entries or acts shall render entrants ineligible and disqualified. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: Odds of winning for a tier level depend on the number of eligible entries received for such tier level. Sponsor will randomly select the number of winners for each tier level as stated in the prize chart below from among eligible entries for such tier level on or about April 24, 2023 but in no event later than five (5) business days after the end of the Sweepstakes Period. Each potential winner will be notified via email at the email address provided by the entrant and must confirm and verify his/her/their identity to Sponsor within the time period requested in such notification. Prizes may be picked up in person at the Event at the Bronx Zoo on Saturday, April 29, 2023 or will be emailed or mailed to winners who are virtual Event participants or who entered through email. At the time of pick up of or prior to emailing or mailing a prize, as the case may be, each winner will be required to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability/Publicity Release. Sponsor is not responsible for changes to entrants’ email or mailing addresses after the date on which they enter the Sweepstakes. If a potential winner for any tier level cannot be contacted, fails to reply to the winner notification as requested, is ineligible, fails to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability/Publicity Release as requested, fails to claim the prize in a timely manner, or otherwise fails to comply with these Official Rules, then such potential winner will be disqualified and forfeits the prize and, at Sponsor’s discretion, an alternate winner for such tier level may be selected, time permitting. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the identity and eligibility of the winners of each tier level of this Sweepstakes.
Unless prohibited by law, acceptance of a prize constitutes the winner’s permission to Sponsor to use, and to allow others, including without limitation anyone acting on behalf of Sponsor and Sponsor’s licensees, successors, and assigns, to use, where permitted by law, such winner's name, address (city and state of residence), photograph, image, likeness, voice, opinions, statements, winning entry, and prize information, in any manner, in any and all media now known or hereafter developed, worldwide in perpetuity for Sponsor’s institutional, educational, promotional, and publicity purposes and for publicizing any corporate sponsor’s support of or role in the Sweepstakes, without additional consideration or compensation, permission, notification, or limitation except where prohibited by law.
