What's Your Dream? Share It, and Enter to Win a Space Food Feast!

Mae Jemison always knew she wanted to go to the moon. When Geena Davis' teacher told the acting class that only one of them would make it, she looked around and felt bad for the other kids. Kathy Kusner, the first licensed female jockey, was crazy about horses from the start. Our MAKERS follow their dreams, whether they realize them at a young age or later in life.

The use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited.

6.              Drawing:  At the conclusion of the Entry Period, the Sponsor will select the name of one (1) potential winner in a random drawing of all eligible entries received.  The odds of being selected depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period.  If you are selected as a potential winner, you will be emailed and asked to provide your name, complete address, and date of birth.  If a potential winner does not respond within seven (7) days, the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from all remaining eligible entries received.

7.              Requirements of the Potential Winner:  Except where prohibited, the potential winner may be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the “Affidavit/Release”) before receiving the prize.  If a potential winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, an alternate entrant may be selected in his/her place in a random drawing of all entries received.  Acceptance of a prize constitutes consent to use winner’s name and likeness for editorial, advertising and publicity purposes without additional compensation, except where prohibited by law.

9.              General Conditions:  In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Sweepstakes is impaired in any way for any reason, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstakes in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) award the prize at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment.  The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner.  Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.  The Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.  In case of a dispute as to the owner of an entry, entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the Twitter handle or Facebook account from which the entry is made.      

10.           Publicity:  Except where prohibited by law, participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes an entrant’s consent for the Sponsor and the Sponsor’s designees to use of entrant’s name, likeness, voice, opinions, biographical information, and state of residence for promotional purposes in any media without further payment or consideration.

11.           Release and Limitations of Liability:  By participating in the Sweepstakes, entrants agree to release and hold harmless the Sponsor, its officers, directors, employees, and agents (the “Released Parties”) and Facebook and Twitter from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention in the Sweepstakes; (b) printing errors; (c) lost, late, postage-due, misdirected, or undeliverable mail; (d) errors in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; or (e) injury, death or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt and use of any prize.  Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Released Parties’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstakes, and in no event shall the Released Parties be liable for attorney’s fees.  Entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages.

12.           Disputes:  Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, entrant’s rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the Commonwealth of Virginia or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the Commonwealth of Virginia.
