(“Sponsor”), Promotion Activators Management, LLC (“Administrator”), their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, sales representatives, advertising, sales promotion and judging agencies, webmasters/suppliers, and their respective immediate family members (spouse, parents, siblings, children) or household members (whether or not related). By entering you agree to these Official Rules. The Promotion is void outside the 50 United States/D.C. and where prohibited.

How to Enter: Go to www.growwithsmuckers.com (the “Website”) during the Promotion Period and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the entry form and tell us in 100 characters or less (in English) what you would like to grow in your School garden (“Entry”). Limit one Entry per person/School. You must have permission from the appropriate School authorities to submit an Entry in the Promotion. Submission of an Entry grants Sponsor and its agents the right to publish, use, adapt, edit and/or modify the Entry in any way, in any and all media, including for the use in advertising and marketing, without limitation, and without additional consideration to you. Entries will not be judged and the quality or content of your Entry will not affect the odds of winning. No robotic, programmed, script, macro or other automated Entries (collectively “automated entries”). Automated entries, or, multiple Entries by the same person/School, or Entries that have been tampered with will result in disqualification of all such Entries. All Entry materials submitted become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. By submitting an Entry, entrant acknowledges that his/her Entry may be posted across any or all of Sponsor’s digital and social media assets, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Personal information collected is subject to the Sponsor's privacy policy at https://www.smuckerfoodservice.com/privacy-policy.
