NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN THIS PROMOTION.

Promotion void where prohibited by law. Subject to applicable federal, state, and local laws.

1. Eligibility: The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the United States who are at least 18 years old at the time of entry and have a child participating in the Seahawks Summer Reading Program (the "Program").

Directors, officers, members, managers, and employees of Football Northwest LLC d/b/a Seattle Seahawks ("Sponsor"), the National Football League and its member clubs, and any of their respective parent companies, affiliate companies, subsidiaries, agents, professional advisors, advertising, promotional, public relations, and fulfillment agencies, consultants, legal counsel, website providers, web masters, and immediate family members (spouses, parent, child, sibling, grandparent, and "step" child, wherever they may live) of each are not eligible to win any prize. IF YOU DO NOT MEET ANY OF THESE REQUIREMENTS, OR ANY OTHER ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS IN THESE OFFICIAL RULES, YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO WIN A PRIZE. To be eligible to win a prize, entries must be completed and received by Sponsor in the manner and format designated below.

2. Promotion Period: The Promotion starts at 12:01am Pacific Time (PT) on June 5, 2023 and ends at 11:59pm PT on August 31, 2023 (the "Promotion Period"). All entries must be received during the Promotion Period and meet other requirements in these Official Rules to be eligible to win a prize. Sponsor's or its designee's computer is the official time-keeping device for the Promotion.

3. How to Enter: To enter, (i) encourage your child to read 20 minutes per day during the Promotion Period and (ii) visit www.seahawks.com/summerreadingprogram during the Promotion Period to log the number of minutes your child has read. As the parent or guardian, you can log the number of minutes your child has read as many times as you want during the Promotion Period, but you are only eligible to enter the Promotion one (1) time for each child participating in the Program. Upon completion of these steps, you will receive one (1) entry into the Promotion for each child participating in the Program. Any attempts to obtain additional entries, including through multiple or duplicate accounts will result in disqualification.

If participating in this Promotion via your mobile device (which service may only be available via select devices and participating wireless carriers and is not required to enter), you may be charged for standard data use from your mobile device according to the terms in your wireless service provider's data plan. Normal airtime and carrier charges and other charges may apply to data use and will be billed on your wireless device bill or deducted from your pre-paid balance. Wireless carrier rates vary, so you should contact your wireless carrier for information on your specific data plan.

4. Identity of Entrant: All entries must be submitted by the individual parent or guardian. Bulk or automated entries will be disqualified (including entries made using any script, macro, bot, or promotional service). Any attempt to obtain additional entries through fraud or other illegitimate means will result in disqualification, at Sponsor's discretion.

In the event of a dispute about the identity of the entrant, entries will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted with the entry. An "authorized account holder" means the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. A potential winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that a potential winner is the authorized account holder of the account associated with the winning entry.

5. Selection and Notification of Winner: On or about September 1, 2023, Sponsor will select the names of five (5) to thirty-five (35) potential winners of the prizes (depending on the number of minutes logged by all Program participants; see prize details in Section 6 below) in a random drawing from among all eligible entries. The odds of winning depend on the number of minutes logged by all Program participants and number of eligible entries received.

On or about September 1, 2023, Sponsor will also tabulate the results of the times logged during the Promotion Period for each Program participant. The Program participant with the highest number of logged minutes during the Promotion Period will be deemed the potential winner of the Grand Prize (see prize details in Section 6 below). If Sponsor determines that two (2) or more Program participants have the same highest number of logged minutes, then Sponsor will conduct a randomized drawing of such entrants to select the name of one (1) potential winner of the Grand Prize, subject to these Official Rules.

Each potential winner will be notified via email on or about September 1, 2023. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Sponsor may require each potential winner to sign and return, as specified by Sponsor, an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release in order to claim his/her prize. If (i) the attempted notification is returned as undeliverable without a forwarding address or the potential winner does not respond within three (3) days of being notified by Sponsor; (ii) any required documents are not returned as specified by Sponsor, such as the Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release; or (iii) if potential winner is otherwise unable to accept the prize as stated, the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held for each prize, after which the remaining prizes will not be awarded. If, by reason of a print or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number set forth in these Official Rules, an alternate winner will be selected in accordance with the above selection process from among all eligible claimants making purportedly valid claims to award the prizes available.

Verification of Potential Winner: EACH POTENTIAL WINNER IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE PROMOTION. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A PRIZE WINNER UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT'S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE AND NO FURTHER ACTION IS NEEDED.

6. Prize: During the Promotion Period, Sponsor will add prizes to the prize pool as minutes are logged by Program participants. There will be five (5) Seahawks fan packs in the prize pool at the start of the Promotion Period. Additional prizes will be added to the prize pool as minutes are logged by Program participants. For example, if Program participants collectively log between 25,000 and 49,999 minutes during the Promotion Period, Sponsor will add another five (5) Seahawks fan packs to the prize pool. Depending on the number of collective minutes logged by all Program participants, five (5) to thirty-five (35) winners will be selected at the conclusion of the Promotion Period, as outlined in the below table. The total Approximate Retail Value ("ARV") of these potential prizes is $2,575.

One (1) Grand Prize winner (who will be selected as outlined in Section 5 above) will receive one (1) visit by Seattle Seahawks' mascot (Blitz) and a custom Seahawks jersey or a comparable Seahawks Prize Pack, subject to Winner's location and Sponsor's sole discretion.
