Eligible participants having submitted a Sweepstakes Entry are individually referred to as an “Entrant” and collectively, “Entrants.”
Maximum of one Entry per person. Each participant must submit a Sweepstakes Entry on his/her own behalf. The individual who submitted the Sweepstakes Entry shall be designated as the official Entrant in the Sweepstakes, regardless of any other individuals featured in the Sweepstakes Entry, and the official Entrant shall be the only individual eligible for any resulting prize awarded. Any Sweepstakes Entry submitted (a) on behalf of another individual, (b) using another person’s name or Instagram account, or (c) with any false information, including misrepresentation of age, will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any Sweepstakes Entry, the authorized account holder of the Instagram account used to enter the Sweepstakes will be deemed to be the Entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned to the Instagram account (as assigned by Instagram, as the case may be) of the account name used to post the Sweepstakes Entry submission. Proof of being the authorized account holder may be required. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more one Sweepstakes Entry by any means, including use of multiple/different social media handles, identities, or other method will void all of participant’s entries. Use of any automated system (including but not limited to third-party sweepstakes/contest entry services) to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification and all such entries will be deemed void. Any questions regarding the number of Entries submitted or the identity of an authorized account holder shall be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
Each Entrant agrees that their Sweepstakes Entry may be viewed by the public. However, the fact that a Sweepstakes Entry is viewable by the public does not constitute any representation as to Sweepstakes eligibility or notification as a potential prize winner. Each Entrant agrees that s/he may be contacted, recorded and/or broadcasted by Sponsor, and that his/her Sweepstakes Entry may be used, promoted, released, broadcasted, or published by Sponsor in any manner related to the promotion of the Sweepstakes without additional approval, authorization, or compensation. Receipt of Sweepstakes Entry will not be acknowledged by Sponsor. Sponsor may (but is in no way obligated to) publish, display, promote, or utilize your Sweepstakes Entry in any manner of its choosing in relation to the promotion of the Sweepstakes or Sponsor.
By participating and submitting a Sweepstakes Entry, Entrant agrees that Sponsor and Released Parties are authorized to contact entrant via email, mail, phone or any other form of media to make contestant aware of information pertinent to the Sweepstakes, and to distribute information regarding the Sponsor(s) featured products, discounts, special events or promotional offers. Contestants may opt-out of any further email communication at any time by clicking the UNSUBSCRIBE link provided in all promotional email messages from Sponsor and following the opt-out instructions. Any available opt-in opportunities are not required to enter the Sweepstakes and checking the opt-in boxes will not improve your chances of winning.

Sponsor reserves the right to request from any Entrant at any time proof, in a form acceptable to Sponsor, of any permission required or possibly required to use such Entrant’s Sweepstakes Entry. Failure to provide such requested proof may disqualify such Sweepstakes Entry. A Sweepstakes Entry constitutes permission for the Sponsor and its designees to use that Entrant’s name, city, state of residence, and/or likeness for all commercial purposes in any and all media now or hereafter known worldwide in perpetuity without limitation or compensation, notification or permission, unless prohibited by law.
Winner Selection and Notification: On each of the Drawing Dates set forth in the chart below, a Drawing will be held to select a total of twenty-five (25) Entries from among all eligible Entries received by the stated deadline for the applicable Entry Period (each a “Potential Winner”). Non-winning Entries will roll over to the next Drawing, if any. Entries not received by the Entry Period deadlines below will be entered into the next Drawing.
The Potential Winners will be notified initially by direct message to the Potential Winner’s Instagram used to enter. Sponsor and Administrator each expressly disclaim any and all liability in connection with an inability to contact a Potential Winner due to the configuration of his/her Instagram privacy settings. With regard to Instagram, you are advised to “follow” the official Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers® account on Instagram (@raisingcanes) so that Sponsor or Administrator will be able to contact you if your Sweepstakes Entry is drawn.
If the Administrator is unsuccessful in its attempt to reach a Potential Winner via direct message within 48-hours of the initial notification attempt to the Instagram account associated with that Entrant’s Sweepstakes Entry, then Entrant may be disqualified, and an alternate Potential Winner may be selected from among the remaining eligible Sweepstakes Entries and notified following the procedures outlined above.
During prize winner notification, a Potential Winner must verify his/her eligibility including the School the Potential Winner is employed by (including city), the grade(s) the Potential Winner teaches at the School, and indicate a willingness and ability to accept the prize. Potential Winner may then receive official notification via email delivery. If a Potential Winner does not meet the eligibility requirements, or elects to decline the prize, s/he will be disqualified and, at Sponsor’s discretion, an alternate Potential Winner will be selected from among all remaining Entries received as set forth above and notified per the procedures outlined above. Any disqualified Entrant will not receive any alternate prize substitution or compensation of any kind. Decisions of the Sponsor/Administrator in the selection and determination of prize winners and all matters relating to this Sweepstakes are final and binding.
All of the following will apply to Potential Winners (each a “Winner”): 1) Winner must complete and return, within 5 business days of date of receipt, a prize acceptance form, an affidavit of eligibility, and a liability/publicity release (where permitted); 2) Winner must present a copy of a valid social security card and a valid driver’s license (or other valid government issued photo ID) as a condition of receiving a prize; 3) Winner will be issued an IRS Form 1099 reflecting the actual value of prizes won if a prize value equals or exceeds $600; and 4) Winner is responsible for paying all applicable taxes (including, but not limited to all local, state and federal taxes) on any prize awarded. Failure to collect or properly claim a prize in accordance with these Official Rules will result in forfeiture of the prize. If forfeited for any reason, Winner will not receive a prize substitution or compensation of any kind, and the prize will remain the property of Sponsor and will not be awarded, except as provided herein.
Prize (maximum of 50): Sponsor will order directly through the Shopping Website one or more items from Winner’s Wish List up to a maximum aggregate value of $500.00 (“Prize”). The aggregate value of all components of a Prize is limited $500.00 inclusive of sales tax, shipping expenses, and any handling fees charged by the Shopping Website. If the actual value of a Prize, as awarded, is under $500.00, Winner will not receive the difference between the actual Prize value and $500.00. The specific items selected from a Winner’s Wish List and ordered as components of a Prize will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute or add components to a Prize that are not on an individual Winner’s Wish List. The actual value of a Prize, as awarded, may differ from the time of Winner selection.
Maximum value of all Prizes combined is $25,000.00. If a component of a Prize requires physical delivery (“Shipped Prize”), the Shipped Prize will be shipped to the address associated with the Winner’s Shopping Website account. Shipped Prizes will be delivered by U.S. Postal Service or a common carrier made available by the Shopping Website and selected by Sponsor and any Shipped Prize will be deemed delivered to Winner once a Shipped Prize is delivered by Shopping Website to the U.S. Postal Service or other common carrier. Prize components may be shipped separately by Shopping Website. Sponsor and Administrator are not responsible for late, delayed, lost, stolen, undeliverable, or damaged Shipped Prizes once Sponsor places an order for a Prize or Prize component on behalf of Winner. Delivery timing of Shipped Prizes are dependent on the availability of Prize components at the time Sponsor places an order and the responsiveness of your selected Shopping Website.
