First Prize (4): A $25,000 Scholarship, awarded in the form of a check co-payable to each winner and each winner’s school.
Note: At the time of prize award, if a winner is a candidate for a degree at an educational institution that maintains a regular faculty and curriculum and normally has a regularly enrolled body of students in attendance at the place where it carries on its educational activities (“Candidate”) or a parent/legal guardian of a Candidate then the prize will be awarded as stated above. In the event a winner is the parent or legal guardian of a Candidate and winner wishes to designate the $50,000 Scholarship to Candidate who is his/her child/charge, the prize will be awarded in the form of a check co-payable to the winner’s child/charge and winner’s child/charge’s school. If a winner is not a Candidate or the parent or legal guardian of a Candidate, the prize will be awarded as a check issued in the name of the winner for deposit in a 529 plan (for whomever winner wishes to designate the 529 plan to), subject to taxes. If the prize is issued as a co-payable check to the winner and the winner’s school or winner’s child/charge and the winner’s child/charge’s school, it will be deemed a Scholarship Prize. Scholarship Prize is to be used solely toward the required tuition, fees, books or supplies in connection with the enrollment of the winner or winner’s child/charge at an educational institution that meets the requirements set forth in Section 117 of the Internal Revenue Code and the regulations thereunder. If a prize is awarded as a deposit for a 529 plan, the prize is taxable as income and winner may elect for a portion of the Scholarship to be awarded in the form of a check to offset taxes (as mutually agreed upon between the winner and Sponsor). Prizes are not subject to Federal Income Tax if used in accordance with the requirements of Section 117 of the Internal Revenue Code.
