Please note: Students entering a contest should be aware that many sites will either sell your email address or use your email address for marketing purposes. It is one of the ways they pay for the prizes. If you do not want to receive junk email, you should be careful to opt-out of any commercial use of your email address. You may also want to use a disposable free email account (e.g., a Hotmail.com account) instead of your real email address. Students should read all rules and be aware of use of student information or likeness, and use of design or artwork. Students should never pay a fee to enter a contest or apply for a scholarship.
