    One (1) new Nissan Versa Note, valued at approximately $17,000 (the "Vehicle Prize") each, will be awarded to one eligible students (the “Vehicle Prize Winner”). In the event a winning student is under the age of 18, the student's parent or legal guardian will be the registered owner of the vehicle and therefore responsible for any license or registration fees. Other prizes that may include TVs, computers, gift cards and/or scholarships (the Prizes) will be awarded to other eligible students (the "Prize Winners"). Being a Prize Winner does not negate a student from also being a Vehicle Prize Winner. The Vehicle Prize is not redeemable, transferable (except, in the case of a student under the age of 18, to their parent or legal guardian) or exchangeable for cash and cannot be applied to existing or previous purchases. Each Prize Winner shall be responsible for any and all federal, state and local taxes resulting from such Prize Winner's acceptance of a Prize. The Vehicle Prize Winners are responsible for insurance and all government fees and taxes applicable to the Vehicle Prize.  The Vehicle Prize Winner will receive an IRS form 1099 from the Dealership Sponsor and is required to provide all necessary information, including the Vehicle Prize Winner's Social Security number, to allow the Dealership Sponsor to prepare the form. No Prize will be replaced if lost, damaged or stolen once delivered to the Prize Winner. If a Prize cannot be awarded due to circumstances beyond the control of Sponsors, a substitute prize of equal or greater retail value may be awarded at Sponsors' sole discretion.

    Odds of Winning:  Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible students during theSweepstakes Entry Period.

    Winner Selection:  Eligible students and their parent or legal guardian must travel to Drawing Event (Location and Time to be announced) on Monday, May 22, 2017where the Vehicle Prizes and Prize Winners will be selected by random drawing.
