On September 4th, 2013, a random draw will be executed by a CBC employee from among all eligible entries received during the Contest Period. The first selected contestant to correctly answer the mandatory mathematical skill-testing question shall be declared the winner, subject to meeting all the conditions described in these rules.
Winner(s) will be contacted by telephone or by e-mail during the week following the draw and should claim their prize as instructed by CBC by no later than 5 business days after the date they are initially contacted. If a winner cannot be reached within 5 business days following the first attempt of contact, incorrectly answers the mathematical skill-testing question, declines the prize, or fails to return the required release form, the prize shall be forfeited and CBC has the right, at its sole discretion, to select another winner.
The winner will receive a trip for four to Ottawa, including:
The winner and his/her travel companion, if applicable, are responsible for obtaining a valid passport and/or other required travel documentation at their own expense. If the winner and his/her travel companion are unable to travel because they lack proper documentation, the prize will be forfeited without compensation, and a new draw may be held. Winner may be required by hotel to provide a valid credit card to cover incidental expenses.
The winner must be available to travel on the dates mentioned in the prize description. If the winner is unable to travel on the designated dates, the prize will be forfeited without compensation and a new draw may be held.
