Contest Rules and Restrictions
GRAND AVENUE DENTAL CARE’S “MARCH MADANI MADNESS” CONTEST OFFICIAL RULES
NO PURCHASE REQUIRED TO ENTER OR WIN
1. Description: The “MARCH MADANI MADNESS” CONTEST (the “Contest”) is a prediction challenge sponsored by GRAND AVENUE DENTAL CARE (GADC). The Contest is based on the results of GADC staff members who will compete against one another in a bracket-style challenge to see who can make the most pop-a-shot basketball baskets in a minute’s time and who can successfully answer trivia questions about Dr. Madani. The staff member “winner” of each pop-a-shot/trivia bracket will advance to the next round. There are 15 separate pop-a-shot games. Entrants (as described below) will be awarded points by correctly predicting the game winners. A Grand Prize will be awarded to the Entrant who has accumulated the most points during the Contest (as described below). In the event of a tie, one winner will be randomly drawn from all of the people with the same high score. Entrants must make their predictions based on their skill, knowledge and understanding of Contest participants. This Contest is devised as a non-gambling promotion and is intended solely for entertainment purposes.
The Contest is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States (or the District of Columbia), who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry (Entrant). Employees of GADC and immediate family members of employees of GADC (spouse and children) living in the same household of each such person are not eligible. The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited by law.
3. How to Enter:
Entrants will obtain a “March Madani Madness” bracket from the GADC office, the GADC website or the GADC Facebook page. Entrants will complete the bracket and return it to the GADC office in person, or electronically via email, sent to email@example.com, with the subject March Madani Madness.
You may enter only one bracket. Any attempt by any participant to submit more than one bracket by using multiple/different email addresses, devices, identities, or any other methods will void that participant’s entries and that participant may be disqualified from the Contest.
5. Contest Period:
The Contest consists of bracket entries from 3/1/2019 to 3/11/2019. Games will be played from approximately 3/11/2019 to 3/20/2019.

6. Scoring: Entrants will earn points based on correct prediction of winning teams in the Contest games.
