Participants in the promotion will fill out an entry blank at the Family Clothesline store, 352 East College Avenue, State College, PA prior to each home Penn State football game. An employee of Magnum Broadcasting, Inc. and / or Family Clothesline will draw one winner slip at random during a live broadcast on WQCK FM prior to each home Penn State Football game during the promotion.
How to Play: If a player on either team receives and returns the opening kickoff of the first half for a touchdown during a home Penn State Football game and (ii) none of the rules stated herein have been violated, then the person listed on the winner slip selected at random during the WQCK-FM live broadcast from the Family Clothesline which precedes that particular home Penn State football game will be paid ten thousand dollars ($10,000) (the “Prize”) from funds provided by SCA Promotions, Inc.
Kickoff Return Prize: Prizes Available:

a. If (i) an eligible player on the team receiving the opening kickoff of the first half of a Designated Game receives and returns said kickoff for a touchdown and (ii) there is compliance with the terms and conditions of this contract, then SCA will pay to Sponsor the prize amount as specified in the Schedule of Available Prizes below, subject to the Maximum Aggregate Liability and verification by SCA.

c. The total number of plays eligible must not exceed: One (1) per Designated Game
d. To count as a successful qualifying play, the kickoff must be received and returned as an official kickoff return, ruled an official “kickoff return for a touchdown” by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (“NCAA”) and recorded as such as an official NCAA statistic. A kickoff return nullified by a penalty or a play that is not ruled as an official “kickoff return for a touchdown” by the NCAA will be ineligible and will not be considered for prize payment. For the avoidance of doubt, and by way of example only, a fumbled kickoff recovered by another player who returns it for a touchdown that is ruled by the NCAA as a “fumble returned for a touchdown” would not be eligible for any prize under this contract.
e. A re-kick, due to either a penalty by the kicking team or a kickoff that goes out of bounds, will be eligible for prize payment.
f. If the event is canceled due to a force majeure which prevents the conducting of the event, assuming no attempts to win the prize were initiated and SCA is notified in writing prior to the cancellation, a pro rata refund proportionate to promotional risk cost for an individual game less any direct costs to SCA, will be made or this contract may be amended to a rescheduled date without additional charges.
g. Failure or disregard of any of the above shall relieve SCA of all liability hereunder and no prize will be awarded. To count as a successful qualifying play, the play must be recorded as an official statistic. A kickoff return nullified by a penalty will be ineligible and will not be considered for prize payment.
A maximum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) will be awarded for a successful qualifying play.
A maximum of two (2) successful qualifying plays between September 1 – November 24, 2018 will result in a payment of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) each. Once an aggregate of two (2) payments have been won as the result of a successful qualifying play prior to November 24, 2018 will result in a payment of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) each. Once an aggregate of two (2) payments have been won as the result of a successful qualifying play prior to November 24, 2018, the Promotion will be ended and no further obligation or liability will exit for either SCA Promotions, Inc., Magnum Broadcasting, Inc.
