All federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply.
ENTRY: You may enter Scholarship Contests using one of the following methods:
WINNER SELECTION: After the Entry Period, our Scholarship Committee will review all eligible applications received and determine a single winner of each Scholarship category. Entry into the Scholarship Contest constitutes Applicant’s full and unconditional agreement to Goal: beyond ’s and the Scholarship Committee’s decisions in administering the Scholarship Contest, which are final and binding in all respects.

If any winner notification is returned as undeliverable, or if the winner does not respond to notification within ten (10) business days of the date of notification, the winner’s prize may be forfeited, and we reserve the right to award any scholarship prize to any runner-up from the remaining eligible Entries to determine a new winner. Payment of the scholarship amount to the winner of the Scholarship Contest is contingent upon and will be delayed until the winner provides reasonably satisfactory proof to us of the winner’s then current attendance or enrollment at a college (with regard to High School Students or College Students) or higher education institution (with regard to Graduate Students). In addition, winner will also need to provide reasonably satisfactory proof of citizen ship, DACA, or TPS in order to receive the prize.

The Release will require the winner to provide, among other information, his or her social security number for tax purposes. The winner shall in the Publicity Release agree to provide a short testimonial which shall be published on our website (with a photo and/or video of the winner), and disbursement of the scholarship to the winner is contingent upon the provision of such testimonial and photo or video. In the event of non-compliance with any of these requirements, or if the winner does not accept or receive the prize, prize may be forfeited, and we reserve the right to choose from the remaining eligible Entries to determine a new winner. If we so elect, a winner may be required to submit to, and cooperate in, a confidential background check to confirm eligibility, and to help ensure that the award of a prize to such winner will not bring us into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on the Scholarship Contest or Goal: beyond, as determined by our sole discretion. You understand and agree that we may disqualify such winner based on the results of the background check in our sole discretion.
