Official Sweepstakes Rules – Amended as of May 22, 2020
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN AND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES.
Amendment: Due to the overwhelming response Bearpaw has received to this Promotion, Bearpaw has elected to Amend the rules of this Promotion (1) to extend the Promotion Period as stated more fully herein, and (2) to increase the amount of Prizes offered, and (3) to increase the number of Prize Winners selected. These increases were made only to increase participation and were done in such a manner that the chance of winning has neither increased nor decreased. Entries nominating someone prior to this Amendment will be unaffected by the Amendment, and these Nominees will be considered with the same weight, scrutiny, and fairness as they would have received prior to this Amendment.
