PRIZES AVAILABLE:A total of five (5) winners (“Winners”) will be selected by random drawing from the top 25 eligible video entries with the most votes (as of June 30, 2014, at 3:00 p.m.) on Tuesday, July 1, 2014, at Lakeshore’s headquarters. Only the votes in Lakeshore’s official My Kid is Ready! Video Sweepstakes Voting Gallery will be counted to determine the Winners. A unique voter may vote no more than once for each video, although he or she may vote for multiple videos during the Sweepstakes Period. Lakeshore has sole discretion to determine which votes shall be included and counted in its My Kid is Ready! Video Sweepstakes Voting Gallery to determine the Winners. Any ties will be broken using a random drawing among all eligible Winners. Winners’ names will also be announced through a post on Lakeshore’s Facebook page on Tuesday, July 1, 2014. The odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received.
Each Winner is to receive one (1) $500 e-gift card (collectively, the “Prize”). No cash value. No substitutions or transfers of Prize or cash redemptions are permitted. Prize is nontransferable and non-assignable. No portion of the Prize may be sold, bartered or exchanged. Lakeshore shall use reasonable efforts to e-mail the Prize to the eligible Winners within two (2) weeks following the completion of the Sweepstakes Period. The Prize is awarded “as is,” with no warranty or guarantee, either expressed or implied.
GENERAL PRIZE RULES:Winner is responsible for the reporting and payment of all taxes (if any) as well as any other costs and expenses associated with acceptance and use of a Prize not specified herein as being awarded.

The decision of Lakeshore will be final and binding in all matters. The odds of winning will depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
