The eligible Entries will be graded based on the following pre-determined set of criteria:
- Wish Judging Criteria:
- How will the Wish impact/improve the recipient’s life: 20%
- Originality/Creativity of Wish: 20%
- How Realistic the Wish is in relation to the maximum ARV for the corresponding Wish prize: 10%
- Essay Judging Criteria:
- Emotional Draw of Reason provided in Essay: 30%
- Connection to Theme: 20%
For each Entry, each Wish will be scored based on the Wish Judging Criteria and the Essay will be scored based on the Essay Judging Criteria above. An Entry’s Big Wish, Medium Wish and Small Wish will each receive a separate total score based on the total of the Wish Judging Criteria score and the Essay Judging Criteria score for that Entry.
The five (5) entrants receiving the highest score from among all eligible Big Wishes received will be deemed a potential Big Wish Prize winner. The five (5) entrants receiving the highest score from among all eligible Medium Wishes received will be deemed a potential Medium Wish Prize winner. The twenty (20) entrants receiving the highest score from among all eligible Small Wishes received will be deemed a potential Small Wish Prize winner. In the unlikely event of a tie, the tied Entry with the highest score in Criterion A (Relevance to Theme) will be deemed that Entry Period’s potential winner. If additional tie breakers are needed, the same tie-breaking mechanism will be used; however, instead of the highest score in Criterion 1.a determining the potential winner from among the tied entries, the highest scores in each of Criteria 1.b through 2.b, in sequence (to the extent needed) will determine the potential winner. If additional tie-breakers are still needed, the tied Entries will be judged by a separate panel of judges to be determined by Sponsor using the judging process as outlined above.
All decisions made by Sponsor with respect to the judging and award of the prizes are final and binding upon all Entrants.

DISPUTES: The parties hereto each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, the Released Parties shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Los Angeles County, California and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Contest shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Los Angeles County, California. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles County, California. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of entrant to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
