  1. TO ENTER the March for Our Lives Action Fund (“MFOL”, “Sponsor”) Pledge to Vote Scholarship Contest (“Contest”), eligible people (see Eligibility, below) must submit their Initial Entry (see Initial Entry, below) on the website (marchforourlives.com/scholarships/ptv22). MFOL will not accept or consider entries that are mailed-in. As further detailed below, entrants agree to accept and be bound by all terms of these Contest Rules and to accept and be bound by the decisions of MFOL, whose decisions are final with respect to all matters of the Contest. Only one Initial Entry per eligible person is permitted. Entries that are incomplete, are submitted late, do not answer all required questions, contain information other than as requested, or otherwise do not comply with these Contest Rules will not be accepted. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means or by any means which subvert the entry process are void. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. MFOL may edit for grammar, modify for style only, and distribute the submitted entries, without any requirement of additional notification to or permission from the entrant. Entries will only be used to further the mission and goals of MFOL.  All Contest entries must be submitted by 10/31/2022 at 11:59 PM ET (“Contest Period”).
  2. ELIGIBILITY: The Contest is open to anyone who: (1) is at least 16 years of age, (2) is at most 26 years of age, (3) is a legal resident of the United States, living in the U.S. or abroad, (4) has not won an official MFOL Contest or Contest with a cash award in the year of 2022. An eligible minor should have a parent’s or legal guardian’s permission to participate, unless they are legally emancipated. All employees of Sponsor, its parent, affiliates and subsidiaries, board members, contractors, and the immediate families and household members of each, are not eligible to win. By submitting an entry and essay, participant agrees to be bound by these Contest Rules. Entry constitutes permission to use Winners’ names and likeness for publicity purposes without further compensation (except where prohibited by law).
  3. INITIAL ENTRY: Each entry must adhere to the guidelines listed on the submission page and should fully answer each question and all sub-parts. Entrants are only permitted to submit one Initial Entry. Only online submissions will be accepted for the Contest. MFOL reserves the right in its sole administration of the Contest to disqualify any individual it finds or believes to: (i) be tampering with the entry process or the administration of the Contest, (ii) be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or (iii) plagiarizing content in any form. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may disqualify your entry for any reason, including if it determines that your entry fails to conform to these Official Rules in any way or otherwise contains unacceptable content.
  4. BOOSTER ACTIONS: Upon submitting an Initial Entry, entrants are offered additional opportunities to earn additional entries by completing tasks (“Booster Actions”). There are multiple Booster Actions, each with unique rules, requirements, expectations, and amount of entries earned. Entrants are not required to complete Booster Actions to enter the Contest. Individuals who participate in the contest agree to follow all rules listed on Booster Action submission pages. Individuals who do not submit an Initial Entry but submit Booster Action submissions will not be considered for Awards, and any Booster Action entries earned without matching Initial Entries will be considered void. MFOL will make reasonable efforts to count all Booster Actions and match them to their Initial Entries, but it is the duty of the entrant to ensure they use the same contact information (email address and mobile phone number) as they did on their Initial Entry, every time they submit a Booster Action. Booster Action entries submitted with different contact information from an entrant’s Initial Entry may not be counted. Booster Actions can be found at marchforourlives.com/scholarships/ptv22/boost.
  5. WINNER DRAWINGS: Potential Winner(s) of the Contest (the “Potential Winner”) will be randomly drawn from among all eligible entries received. The drawing will occur on the last day of each month within the Contest Period (August, September, October). MFOL will conduct the drawing and awarding of the Prize. Once confirmed and verified as eligible to win, a Potential Winner is referred to herein as a “Winner.” The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period. Entries from people who are not Winners will remain as eligible entries. An Entrant who becomes a Winner is ineligible to receive a subsequent Award during the Contest Period; if a previous Winner’s entry is drawn for an Award within the Contest Period, it will be considered ineligible and void.
  6. AWARD(S): Three Grand Prizes: $1000 Award for the month of August, $1000 Award for the month of September, $1000 Award for the month of October. Award(s) are not transferable. MFOL reserves the right to substitute prize with similar prize of equal or greater value due to prize unavailability.
