In this situation, if a Potential Winner cannot be contacted, fails to execute and return the Affidavit within the required time period, or prize is returned as undeliverable, or he/she refuses his/her prize for any reason, that Potential Winner forfeits the prize and Sponsor will select an alternate winner by random drawing from all remaining eligible entries. If any potential Winning School and/or potential Winner is found to be in violation of the Official Rules of the BTFE program, Box Tops Online Program and/or these Official Sweepstakes Rules, Sponsor shall have the right, but not the obligation, to disqualify such potential Winning School and/or the potential Winner..
