Official Rules

STIHL SOUTHWEST will celebrate the third decade of our 50 Years with STIHL with a Dealer Employee Education Sweepstakes.  We will have 50 Prize Winners with one winning Dealer Employee randomly selected each day for 50 Days.  At the end of the contest, a Grand Prize winner will be randomly selected. 

ELIGIBILITY AND PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

  1.  You must be a current employee of an authorized STIHL dealer of STIHL SOUTHWEST, INC. to enter and/or win a prize. Dealership must be in good standing.

Daily Prizes.  50 daily prizes will be awarded:  one prize will be awarded daily for 50 business days beginning Sept 1, 2016.  Each Winning Dealer Employee will receive their choice of a $100 credit for STIHL merchandise or a $100 credit for STIHL Outfitters merchandise.  The Daily Prize winners will be randomly selected from all qualified entries received prior to the drawing.

Grand Prize. After the last daily prize is awarded on Nov. 10, a Grand Prize will be awarded.  The Grand Prize winner will receive their choice of a credit for a STIHL MS 250 chain saw (or a STIHL unit of equivalent value) or a STIHL Outfitters Wardrobe with a retail value of $300.  The Grand Prize winner will be randomly selected from qualified entries received throughout in the contest.

  • Each iCademy training module from the above list that is completed with a score of 100% between Aug 1 and Nov 9, 2016, will create one or more entries into the sweepstakes. The more training modules completed the more chances each employee has to win. The last Daily Prize winner will be selected on Nov 10, 2016.

  • Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum Qualified Employees who participate will receive additional entries based on their qualification level.  Bronze = 3 additional entries.  Silver = 5 additional entries.  Gold = 10 additional entries. Platinum = 15 additional entries.  You will automatically receive the additional points for your qualification level but these points aren’t additive.  You won’t receive points for each level, just for your highest qualification. The maximum number of entries for any employee is 45:  30 entries if all modules are completed plus a maximum of 15 additional entries for a Platinum certified employee.    

Note that you can become Bronze qualified online during the contest, and you will receive the extra 3 entries.  You can also become Silver qualified during the contest:  to attend a Silver training class (usually held once per month), please contact Casey at STIHL Southwest:  CaseyJ@stihlsw.com or 501-332-2788.

 *If you do not have a STIHL iCademy username and password or have forgotten it, talk to the manager of your dealership.  That person should be able to reset your employee password.  If not, or if the management login for your dealership has been lost, please have the dealership manager contact Zane at STIHL Southwest:  ZaneS@stihlsw.com or 501-332-2788, for assistance in recovering the password.

SELECTION OF WINNERS

Beginning on Sept, 1, 2016, one Daily Winner per business day will be selected in a random drawing from all qualified entries.  You do not have to do anything to enter other than completing qualified training modules with a 100% score within the contest time period.  The earlier you complete your modules, the greater your chances of winning.

At the end of the contest, one additional Grand Prize Winner will be selected in a random drawing from all entries submitted (that have not previously won a daily prize).  Note that most participants will have multiple entries in the contest, so we expect all or most participants to be eligible to win the Grand Prize.   

Each Winner must be an active STIHL SOUTHWEST Dealer employee when the prize is awarded to be eligible to win.  The status of each Winner will be reviewed by STIHL SOUTHWEST to determine the eligibility. After eligibility is confirmed, winners will be announced periodically at www.50thSSW.com.   All STIHL SOUTHWEST decisions are final.

Odds of winning depend on the number of participants and the number of qualified entries received prior to each drawing.

Winners will be contacted by phone at the dealership and prize certificates will be emailed (or mailed) to the address provided by the winner.  Prize is not transferable, replaceable or redeemable for cash, and prize substitution will not be allowed, except at the sole discretion of STIHL SOUTHWEST.  Any taxes and shipping costs are the responsibility of the winners.    

Contest is not valid where prohibited by law.

RULES: The contest will be governed by these official rules.  By participating in this contest, entrants agree to be bound by these official rules and by the decisions of STIHL SOUTHWEST, whose decisions are final on all matters relating to this contest.
