A panel of representatives from Good American will review all entries properly submitted during the Entry Period. The panel will choose which Participants to Interview, in its sole discretion, taking into account the Participant’s attitude, originality and relevance to the mission of Good American.

 

Judging will take place throughout the Entry Period and is scheduled to be completed prior to February 29, 2020.  The selected Participants will be notified (as described below) during that time.  The decisions of Good American will be final and binding in all matters related to the Mentee Search. 

 

No drawings, sweepstakes, raffles or other elements of chance are utilized to determine the Selected Participants. 

 

  1. NOTIFICATION:

Good American will make up to two (2) attempts to notify each Participant selected for an invitation to an Interview (“Selected Participant”) via the email address associated with that Selected Participant’s entry.  Good American is not liable if the Selected Participant is not reached or receives such notification too late to attend any Interview.  Good American requests that each Selected Participant please respond with a courtesy notification as to whether or not the Selected Participant will participate in the Interview.  Good American makes no representations or warranties that all Selected Participants will be able to participate in an Interview and reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to decide whether or not to invite additional Participants in the event any Selected Participants cannot or decline to attend an Interview.

  1. INTERVIEW:

Your submission of an entry only gives you the opportunity to be considered for an Interview.  Good American is not liable in any way if a Participant is not selected to take part in an Interview or a Selected Participant is not able to attend any Interview at its designated time and location.  There is no guarantee that a Selected Participant will receive anything other than the right to participate in the Interview.  Without limiting the foregoing, all Participants expressly acknowledge that an invitation to an Interview does not ensure any Selected Participant will be invited to the mentorship program, or in any other way be involved in or associated with Good American. 

  1. CONDITIONS:

Only a Selected Participant who can verify via photo ID that the Selected Participant is the party who submitted the selected Entry will be allowed to participate in an Interview.  In addition, as a condition to participation in the Interview, each Selected Participant may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release and/or a Publicity Release ("Affidavit/Release").  Such documents must be signed and returned in person at the Interview. If the documents are not signed and returned, or if an Participant is found to be ineligible, or if an Participant does not comply with these Terms, each as determined by Good American in Good American’s sole discretion, then the Selected Participant will be disqualified and not be allowed to participate in the Interview.
