CONTEST DATES:  This Promotion begins on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”), and ends on Sunday, April 30, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. ET, according to the main computer time clock at K’NEX (the “Promotion Period”).

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.  A purchase of a K'NEX product will not increase one’s chances of winning.  Many will enter; however, only up to five will win.  Limit:  Up to five (5) K’NEX® 4-Wheel Drive Truck Building Sets will be awarded in this Promotion.  Eligible participants may only win once during the Promotion Period.
VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
                                                                       
Entry in this Promotion does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes.  By participating in the Promotion, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of K’NEX Limited Partnership Group (“K’NEX”), 2990 Bergey Road, Hatfield, PA 19440 (the “Sponsor”), whose decisions shall be final and legally binding in all respects.
Kids:  It is very important for your safety that your parents know what you are doing when going online, and what websites you are visiting.  The terms of entry constitute a contract, and therefore, at the time of entry, if you are under the age of 18 and reside in the United States, or are under the age of majority in the Canadian province that you reside, you must have your parent’s or legal guardian’s permission to enter and win.  Anyone who has not given us the correct age information on the entry form, or who has not really received their parent’s or legal guardian’s approval, will be automatically disqualified.  So, be sure to tell your parents or guardians now that you are entering this Sweepstakes, and make sure you have his/her permission!

*For an entry to be complete and accepted, and therefore eligible to potentially win the prize described below, we will need the parent/guardian of anyone under the age of 18 (for U.S. residents), or the age of majority (for Canadian residents), to confirm their child’s participation in this Contest, within the time limits set forth below.
   

2.

HOW TO ENTER:  Those eligible to enter under these Official Rules may enter this Contest during the Promotion Period through KNEX.com, and must complete the online Giant Build Part Count entry form by providing:  (a) Your Guess; (b) Your First Name; (c) Your Age; (d) Your Email Address; (e) Your State/Province; and  (f) a Parent or Legal Guardian’s Email Address, if you are not legally considered an adult in the state/providence you live in at the time of entry.  Once the online entry form is complete, entrant must click the “Submit” button.  By participating, all entrants agree to abide by and be bound by these Official Rules.
Upon initial registration by a child under the age of 18 within the United States, or the legal age of majority in the Canadian province he/she lives, the parent or legal guardian of the minor entrant will be sent an entry notification qualification email (via the email address provided by the child upon registration), informing the Parent/Guardian that his/her child (identified by first name) has entered the Bi-Monthly Giant Build Part Count Contest.  In this email, K’NEX will ask the Parent/Guardian to confirm their child’s participation in this Contest.  For the child’s entry to be complete and accepted,and therefore eligible to potentially win one of the prizes listed below, the Parent/Guardian of the minor entrant must confirm their child’s participation in this Contest within the time limits set forth below. 

In the reply email from the Parent/Guardian to K’NEX, the Parent/Guardian will be given a box to check to elect to opt-out the child’s entry, and prevent the entry from being accepted for any prize offered in the Contest.  So, if the Parent/Guardian opts to have the child removed from the Contest, the child’s initial and any subsequent entries from the same email address will not be accepted.  The child will receive a final email message from K’NEX informing that his/her Parent/Guardian has decided that they do not want that child to participate in this Promotion.

If the Parent/Guardian does not respond to either validate the child’s registration, or to opt-out as described above, within the 48 hour time period indicated on the entry notification qualification email, their child’s initial and any subsequent entry from the same email address will not be accepted, and K’NEX will have no further obligation regarding the child’s entry not being included.  The child will receive a final email message from K’NEX informing that his/her Parent/Guardian has not responded to the entry notification qualification email and, therefore, the child’s entry will not be included in the Promotion.
In either of these scenarios, the child will not be considered an entrant of the Bi-Monthly Giant Build Part Count Contest.

If the Parent/Guardian timely confirms the child’s entry, the child’s entry will be deemed complete and accepted at the time K’NEX receives this email confirmation.
   
Privacy Note:  Parents please note:  K’NEX is committed to protecting the privacy of children.  Entry information will only be used to administer this Contest or otherwise in accordance with our Privacy Policy.  Child’s first name and age will be posted on KNEX.com if your child/ward is selected as a Prize Winner.  No other personal information will be posted or shared except as needed to administer this Contest or in accordance with our Privacy Policy.  We will, of course, use the full name and address of the child in order to send him/her the prize to which she/he is entitled, if selected as a prize winner.

ELIGIBILITY:  Contest is open to all permanent, legal U.S. and Canadian residents currently domiciled in the U.S. or Canada (except those of Puerto Rico, U.S. territories or possessions, and the Province of Quebec).  Employees, officers, and directors of Sponsor and Sponsor’s advertising and promotion agencies, and each of its and their parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies (collectively, the “Promotion Entities”), and each of their immediate family members and/or people living in the same household are not eligible to participate.  All eligibility is subject to all U.S. and Canadian federal, state, provincial and local laws and regulations.

   
4.

JUDGING PROCEDURE AND TIMELINE:  After the Promotion Period has concluded, the five successfully completed entries containing the closest guesses to the actual number of pieces in the Triceratops Giant Build, without going over, will win the Prize stated below.  If there are more than five successfully completed entries that have correctly guessed the actual number of pieces in the Triceratops Giant Build (a tie), there will be a random drawing (conducted by K’NEX Staff under the supervision of the K’NEX General Counsel using www.random.org) to choose the five winners from the pool of correct guesses. 

If no participant has correctly guessed the actual number of pieces in the Triceratops Giant Build, or if there are still prizes to be awarded after winners (i.e., those participants who correctly guessed the actual number of pieces) have been chosen, the participant(s) whose guess is closest to the actual number of pieces in the Triceratops Giant Build, without going over, will be declared a winner.  In the event of a tie among this pool, another random drawing (conducted by K’NEX Staff under the supervision of the K’NEX General Counsel using www.random.org) will occur to determine final winners.  The chance of winning one of the five prizes is dependent upon the number of entries: the more entries, the lower the chances of winning.

The winners' first names and ages will be posted on or around May 15, 2016, at www.knex.com.  All decisions made by the K'NEX judges for the prizes are final and non-appealable.
   

5.

PRIZES:  A total of up to five (5) K’NEX® 4-Wheel Drive Truck Building Sets (with an approximate retail value of $24.99 (US) each) will be awarded – one set each to up to a total of five winners.  Participants may only win once during the Promotion Period.
Prizes are non-assignable and non-transferrable.  No substitution or cash equivalent for prize will be made, except that the Sponsor may, at its sole discretion, substitute a prize of equal or greater value for any reason.   
Sponsor will not replace a lost, mutilated, or stolen building set.
Total value of all prizes is up to $124.95 (US).  Sponsor will comply with all income tax reporting obligations.  All prize winners are responsible for any and all local, state, federal and/or Canadian federal or provincial taxes, as well as any other costs, fees and expenses not specified herein, associated with the receipt of the prize.

If the prize winner has not yet reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which he or she resides, the prize in which he or she is entitled will be awarded in the name of the parent or legal guardian of the winner on behalf of the minor child.

U.S. prize winners must note that if Sponsor previously awarded the selected prize winner one or more prizes whose cumulative values exceed $300.00 (US) during the 2016 calendar year, receipt of a valid IRS W-9 Form is a requirement for the awarding of any and all further prizes to that Winner.  If the total value of all accepted prizes from Sponsor exceeds $600.00 during the 2016 calendar year, the value of the accepted prizes is taxable as income, and an IRS Form 1099 Misc. or equivalent will be filed in the name of the Winner (or in the event the prize winner has not yet reached the legal age of majority in the jurisdiction in which he or she resides, in the name of the parent or legal guardian of the prize winner) for the value of all prizes received from Sponsor during the 2016 calendar year, and the Winner (or in the event the prize winner has not yet reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which he or she resides, his/her parent or legal guardian) is solely responsible for all tax related issues relating to these prizes after they are awarded. 

Each selected entrant (or in the event the selected entrant has not yet reached the legal age of majority in the jurisdiction in which he or she resides, his/her parent or legal guardian on the selected entrant’s behalf) will also be required to complete, sign and return to Sponsor a written Affidavit of Eligibility and Release (the “Declaration and Release”), declaring that the entrant is eligible to win the prize in accordance with these Official Rules and releasing the Released Parties (as defined in Paragraph 8 below)  from and against any liability in connection with this Promotion, or the use, misuse or possession of any prize related thereto.
