How the Winner is Chosen

Within ten (10) Business days of the end of the Promotion Period, Foresters or a representative chosen by Foresters will randomly choose five (5) potential winners from the eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.

Your odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.

Within ten (10) Business days of the draw, Foresters will contact the potential winners using the contact information on their respective certificate file with Foresters. Any potential winner must respond and contact Foresters within five (5) business days and, if a Canadian resident, successfully answer a skill-testing question. The winner must then allow us to photograph him or her for publicity purposes, and sign a release as referred to below.

If a potential winner does not respond within the time limits that apply, or does not successfully answer the skill-testing question, or does not otherwise comply with these Rules, then he or she will be disqualified. In that case, we will promptly draw another potential winner who, upon notification, will be required to contact us within five (5) business days and satisfy the requirements for claiming the prize.

If after three such attempts to choose a winner any prize remains to be distributed, we reserve the right to donate it to a charity of our choice. In such limited circumstances, a prize may not be awarded.

We are not responsible if any notification to a potential winner is undeliverable, or if a potential winner does not respond within the required time, or we do not receive the potential winner’s response, or if a potential winner is otherwise disqualified under these Rules.

Delivery of Prize

All prizes will be distributed within sixty (60) days after the winner has been successfully contacted and notified of their prize and has complied with all Promotion rules and requirements.
