Once you have completed and correctly answered all of the questions in the related Quiz and provided your name and USS employee ID number, you will receive one (1) entry into the applicable monthly drawing. Each Quiz must be completed during the week in which they were posted or otherwise made available to receive an entry. You may only obtain up to (1) one entry per week, regardless how many times you complete any Quiz. Each weekly submission period for a given Quiz begins at 12:00:01 a.m. ET on a Monday, and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. ET on the immediately following Saturday. The first weekly submission period of each “month” will begin on the first Monday of that calendar month.

Limit one (1) entry per Quiz per eligible employee. Proof of submission is not proof of receipt. Subsequent entries from the same employee or email address will be disqualified. Any attempt by an employee to enter with multiple email accounts or any other means may result in disqualification at the discretion of the Sponsor upon prize verification.

DRAWING AND WINNER NOTIFICATION: A series of five (5) separate drawings will be held (December 2020 - April 2021.) The drawing for each month will be held from among all eligible entries received during that month. The drawing will occur within 10 days after the end of the applicable month. Entry into each monthly drawing is separate. Entry into one monthly drawing is not entry into any other drawing. Each month is measured by ET.
