For each instance during the contest that an entrant achieves a perfect score (5) in a week, the entrant will earn a ballot. At the end of the season, we will randomly draw 5 ballots with each ballot drawn winning a limited edition BenchSports t-shirt or hooded sweatshirt.
If there are fewer than 4 Perfect Week winners eligible, we will transfer these prizes to season-long prizes, and award them to the next highest finisher.
Each entrant is only eligible to be awarded one prize (with the exception of the Grand Prize winner, who would also be eligible to win a weekly prize).
In the event a Winner is deemed ineligible, the prize will be awarded to the next eligible entrant. We will contact all winners within a week of contest closure. If a winner does not claim their prize by the date specified, the prize will be forfeited, and no prize awarded.
All ties after on-site tie-breakers will be broken by random draw.
Sizing is limited on all clothing items this year. Winners will select their sizes from what is available in order from top finishers in season-long, followed by weekly winners in order of name drawn.
