Sweepstakes drawing: A random drawing will be conducted to select five semi-finalists from all eligible entries on or about October 18, 2021, by CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union. A maximum of five semi-finalists, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, will be selected. All CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union decisions regarding eligibility and qualifying entries are final. The odds of being selected as a semi-finalist will depend on the total number of eligible entries received. Semi-finalists must be able to attend the James Madison University Homecoming game on Saturday, November 6, 2021, in Harrisonburg, VA.
Thereafter, on November 6, 2021, during the half-time game break, CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union will conduct one (1) final random drawing from among the selected semi-finalists to determine the finalist who will have a chance to win the Grand Prize of $25,000 as set forth below. Each semi-finalist will receive a key, which they will use during the halftime contest, to attempt to unlock the case with a football inside. The four semi-finalists with keys that do not unlock the case with the football inside will each receive a $250 consolation prize. The finalist, if successful in making the field goal, will receive $25,000 in cash. The finalist, if unsuccessful in making the field goal, will receive a consolation prize of $1,000.
Prize: The five semi-finalists will each be awarded two tickets (ten total tickets to be awarded) with an approximate retail value of thirty-five dollars ($35) for each ticket, to the Saturday, November 6, 2021 James Madison University Homecoming Football Game in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The four (4) semi-finalists not selected as the finalist will be awarded $250 in the form of a deposit into their CommonWealth One savings account or such $250 will be paid as a cash equivalent on or about November 19, 2021.
The one (1) finalist selected from the semi-finalists will have the chance to win the twenty-five thousand dollars and 0/100 cents ($25,000.00) grand prize in the form of a deposit into their CommonWealth One savings account or such grand prize will be paid as a cash equivalent on or about November 19, 2021. In order to qualify for the grand prize, the finalist will be given one (1) attempt to successfully kick an official field goal from the third demarcation line. The finalist is not allowed to use a tee of any sort which elevates the ball above the playing surface and must have a holder to keep the ball upright and one end of the ball must be touching the ground prior to the kick. The third demarcation line shall be determined by the following procedure: A) the initial line of demarcation shall be the back line of the designated end zone. If the finalist is a female, the initial line shall be the goal line. The finalist must start from behind this line, and will have one (1) attempt to punt the football. A punt shall be defined as me “dropping” the ball from around the waistline, and subsequently kicking the ball before it hits the ground. The second line of demarcation shall be the line parallel to the goal line which passes through the spot at which my punt first hits the ground. No rolls or bounces, forward or backward, shall be acknowledged. B) From behind the second line of demarcation, the finalist must throw the football. The third and final line of demarcation shall be line parallel to the goal line which passes through the spot at which the throw first hits the ground. No rolls or bounces, forward or backward, shall be acknowledged. This third line of demarcation shall be the line from which a successful field goal must be kicked by the finalist. No part of the finalist’s body or clothing may come in contact with the demarcation lines prior to kicking or throwing the ball(s). Any such contact shall constitute a foul and the kick will be considered missed. The finalist shall not be permitted any practice, warm up, or qualifying punts, passes or kicks at any time after his/her notification of participation in the promotion until the actual prize attempt.
In the event the finalist does not make the field goal, the finalist will be awarded $1,000 as consolation.
No substitutions or transfer of prize permitted. CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union will send the winners a 1099-MISC which will represent the value of winning this Sweepstakes. Any state or federal taxes that may be owed on prize winnings are the sole responsibility of the individual winner. The odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received; i.e., if 1,000,000 entries are received the odds of winning are 1:1,000,000.
Notification: Semi-finalists will be notified by email, postal mail and/or phone.
