GreatSchools reserves the right to disqualify entrants who, in its sole opinion, violate any of the provisions of the Official Rules. GreatSchools reserves the right to prosecute and seek damages against any individual who attempts to deliberately undermine the proper operation of the Event or violates these Official Rules and/or criminal or civil law.

Drawing and Prizes: GreatSchools will be awarding up to an aggregate of 7 iPod nanos or free Internet access for 2 years (whether a winning entrant receives an iPod nano or Internet access shall be determined in GreatSchools' sole discretion) in three separate drawings. Winners will be selected in a random drawing of the eligible entries to be conducted by GreatSchools on February 15, March 15 and August 15, 2008. The odds of winning depend upon the total number of eligible entries received. Drawings will take place at GreatSchools' offices. Winners will be notified by telephone and/or email to the cell phone number and/or email address provided in the submitted entry within 5 business days of drawing date. If GreatSchools is unable to contact potential winners by cell phone and/or email or if any potential winner fails to respond to the prize notification within 5 business days of issuance of notification or if any winner fails to comply with any of these Official Rules or other requirements, that potential winner or winner shall be disqualified and an alternate winner shall be selected through another random drawing conducted by GreatSchools. Entrants consent to the use of their name and/or likeness for promotional and marketing purposes, including online announcements, without additional compensation, except where prohibited by law. Allow 4-6 weeks after verification of winner status for the receipt of prize by first-class U.S. mail.

The estimated retail value of an iPod nano is $150 and of the Internet access for 2 years is $480. Free internet access requires the winner to acquire and maintain, at the winner's sole cost and expense, an AT&T phone line for two years (without existing AT&T high speed internet on the line at the time of acquisition). All prizes are non-transferable, non-redeemable for cash and may not be applied as a credit towards any other product or service. Prizes may include additional terms and conditions. Each winner is responsible for all applicable taxes, fees, and duties with respect to prizes. GreatSchools reserves the right to withhold any taxes as required by applicable law. The winning entrants may be required to supply Social Security numbers or other taxpayer identification numbers prior to the award of any prize.

If, in GreatSchools' opinion, there is any suspected or actual evidence of electronic or non-electronic tampering with any portion of the Event or entries, or if technical difficulties compromise the integrity of any entry and/or drawing, GreatSchools reserves the right to terminate the entry period and conduct a random drawing to award the prizes using all eligible entries received as of the termination date. Should the acceptance of additional entries be terminated prior to the stated expiration date, notice will be posted.
