(TOTAL VALUE OF GRAND PRIZE)

The first Entry drawn will be declared the potential “Winner” of that drawing.  Entrants need not be present to win. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible Entries received for the separate weekly periods combined, or full Entry Period. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF A PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT'S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN ADVISED BY DEWALT THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.

4.  NOTIFICATION AND CLAIM OF PRIZE: Each potential Winner will be contacted by DEWALT based on the information provided in the Entry within five (5) business days after the random drawing is held.  Each potential Winner must accept and claim the prize by returning to DEWALT an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (“Winner’s Affidavit”) and the potential Grand Prize Winner also be required to provide his/her completed and personally signed IRS tax form W-9 within ten (10) days of the first notification attempt.  Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of the prize awarded hereunder.  DEWALT shall have no liability for any potential prize winning notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential Winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts (three attempts) by DEWALT, a potential Winner does not respond to notification from DEWALT and accept and claim the prize as required herein or if prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable, such potential Winner will be disqualified and forfeit prize. If a potential Winner is found to be ineligible, has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential Winner will be disqualified and forfeit prize.  In the event a potential Winner is disqualified, DEWALT may, but shall not be required to, select an alternate potential Winner from among all remaining eligible Entries.

5.  PRIZES:  The prizes to be awarded are described above in Section 3.  The total MSRP of all prizes to be awarded in this Sweepstakes is $4,947.25.  If any prize is unclaimed, it will not be awarded.  DEWALT reserves the right to substitute a prize (or any part of a prize) for a prize (or part of a prize) of equal or greater value, for any reason whatsoever.  Each prize is non-transferable, non-assignable and not redeemable for credit or cash.  If a potential Winner of any prize fails to sign and return the required document(s) within the time period stated herein, such potential Winner forfeits prize. Each prize will be shipped to respective Winner at their USA physical mailing address (cannot ship to a post office box) via DEWALT’ preferred carrier approximately 6 to 8 weeks after DEWALT has declared the entrant an official Winner.  All income and all other taxes (federal, state and local) on the prizes are the sole responsibility of the Winners.  Each Winner is advised to seek independent counsel regarding the tax implications of accepting a prize in this Sweepstakes.  An IRS tax form 1099 will be issued to the Grand Prize Winner in the amount of $3,606.25.
