All eligible entries will be evaluated and scored by the contest judges based on the following criteria:
The entry with the highest total score will be deemed the First Place Winner, the entry with the second highest score will be deemed the Second Place Winner, the entry with the third highest score will be deemed the Third Place Winner. In the event of a tie, the entry with the highest score for originality followed by creativity will be deemed the winner from among all tying entries. Winners will be notified on or before October 15, 2018.
Acuity, A Mutual Insurance Company, will use reasonable best efforts to notify the winners. In the event a winner cannot be located within five days of the judging period, the winner shall forfeit the prize and we may elect another winner. Each company or charity that receives a check as a result of winning must submit a completed W-9 prior to winner claiming a prize; instructions can be found here.
Have questions? We have answers.
That is okay! We just want the business owner to review your submission, so that they can confirm it is an accurate representation of their business.
The Contestant must be an individual person. You are welcome to work together, but one person needs to be the Contestant responsible for the submission and receiving the prize.
Yes! We would love to hear your story from your perspective!
Each entry will be evaluated individually based on the judging criteria and one winner for each prize will be determined.
Unfortunately, no. We will only accept one entry per Contestant.
