These provisions will be interpreted and applied broadly in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion to affect the intention of the prize in this Promotion.
In the event a winner is disqualified, refuses, declines, or is otherwise ineligible to receive the prize for any reason, the prize as a whole (which includes both the Pella Project and the Selected School donation) is forfeited in its entirety. In the event an eligible confirmed winner’s Selected School refuses or declines the Donation prize, is determined by Sponsor to be non-compliant, ineligible or is otherwise not approved for any reason, winner will be permitted to choose an alternate Selected School. No transfer, assignment or substitution of prize (in whole or in part) is allowed; however, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize, or any element thereof, with a prize of equal or greater value.
