Contest begins March 15, 2012 (00:00:01, CT) and ends June 6, 2012 (23:59:59, CT) (the "contest period"). This contest is only open to residents of the Provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba who are 18 years of age or older on the date they enter and who are owners of or work on a farm in those provinces.
No purchase necessary. To enter the contest, visit www.simplicitywins.ca and fully complete the contest entry form.

Incomplete entries will not be entered into the contest. Only one entry per person and/or email address per week is allowed throughout the entire contest period.
During the 12 week period of this contest, one pair of Canadian Football League (CFL) regular season game tickets will be awarded each week for a home game nearest the residence of the winning entrant (approx. retail value of each prize is $100). The prize includes only the tickets themselves and all other costs are the responsibility of the winner (for example, the prize does not include travel to or from the winner's residence to the game or any incidental costs). The tickets must be accepted as awarded for the exact date for which the game will be played and they cannot be redeemed for cash (if a person does not wish to attend the respective game or cannot attend the respective game on the date it is being played, that person will forfeit their prize and nothing will be awarded to them in its place and no alternative winner will be selected). All terms and conditions applicable to the tickets as prescribed in relation thereto by the Canadian Football League apply to the winner and their use of the ticket.
Winners will be selected based on a random draw from all entries received during each 7 day period of the contest namely for each Thursday to Wednesday period (inclusive). Entrants from each such weekly period will not be entered for any subsequent weekly period.
The odds of being selected for the prize each week will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received that week. Winners will be notified of their having won by telephone at the telephone number stated on their entry form. If a winner does not return their release, received as part of the winner's notification, within 21 days of it having been sent to the winner by the sponsor, that person will automatically forfeit their prize and nothing will be given to that person and the prize will then be re-awarded.
By accepting their Prize, the winner agrees to waive all recourse against the contest sponsor, and those associated with them no matter what the reason including if the contest sponsor has been negligent in any way in the conduct of the contest and without limiting the generality of the foregoing if the prize does not prove satisfactory, either in whole or in part.
Employees of the sponsor, or those domiciled with an employee of the Sponsor, are not eligible to enter.
By entering, contestants agree: (i) to the contest rules (in the event of any conflict with anything contained in these Official Rules and promotion details contained in advertising and other promotion materials, the details of the promotion set forth in these Official Rules shall govern and prevail) (ii) to the use of the entrant's personal information for purposes of administering this contest and (iii) to the use without compensation of the entrant's photograph, filmed or recorded image, name and town of residence in all publicity campaigns related to the contest including on the sponsor's web site and including in any newsletter or publication published by sponsor (the "publicity usages").
Before being declared a winner, a selected entrant must: (i) have first correctly answered, without mechanical or other assistance, sponsor's mathematical, skill-testing question administered as part of the release form, (ii) be in full compliance with these rules and (iii) sign and return sponsor's release within 21 days of it having been sent. Potential prize winners who do not or fail to comply fully with the contest rules will automatically forfeit their opportunity to win that prize and nothing else will be substituted or given to that potential winner and an alternate winner will be chosen in their place.
Contest is being sponsored by Dow AgroSciences Canada Inc. (the "sponsor"). No correspondence will be entered into except with a potential winner.

The sponsor, including its agents, representatives and those associated with them, are not responsible for any entry, a prize winning notification or the claim for prize, which fails to get entered, is lost, misdirected or which arrives late, as the case may be, whether or not due to the fault of the sponsor or of any other person or thing and whether or not due to an interrupted or unavailable browser or network server or malfunction, congestion, incompatibility, misconnection or miscommunication, failed or lost computer transmissions, or if the sponsor's e-mail/website portal is compromised by virus, bugs, unauthorized human or unauthorized non-human intervention, or for any technical malfunction of any telephone network or lines, computer on line systems, servers access providers, computer equipment, software failures, or failure of any entry to be received due to technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or sponsor's web site or other similar technical problems beyond the reasonable control of the sponsor (collectively, the "technical problems"). Proof of transmission (screenshots) does not constitute proof of delivery.
The sponsor reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify, amend or suspend the online portion of the contest, in its sole discretion, if any of the foregoing technical problems prevents the fair or proper administration of the on-line portion of the contest.
The contest sponsor will have no liability whatsoever if for any reason the contest is not capable of running as planned due to technical problems, including due to computer virus, bugs, unauthorized tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes. The contest sponsor reserves their right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the contest or to be acting in violation of these rules or otherwise in a disruptive manner. Contest sponsor shall not be held responsible for any errors or negligence that may arise or occur in connection with the contest including any damage to an entrant's computer equipment, system, software or any combination thereof, as a result of their participation in this contest or from downloading any material from the contest website or elsewhere.

Each prize must be accepted as awarded, in the name of the winner. No cash value will be given for the prize no matter what the circumstances and no substitution will be made for the prize no matter what the circumstances (and without limiting the foregoing, prizes may not be sold or traded). The approximate retail values of a prize as stated in advertising or other promotion materials, and/or in these Official Rules, are subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, the passage of time between the date the respective approximate retail value is stated by the Sponsor and the date the respective prize is awarded or redeemed. If, at the time a prize is redeemed or awarded, the actual prevailing retail purchase price for the prize is less than the approximate retail value stated by the Sponsor in advertising and promotion materials, and/or in these Official Rules, the prize winner will not be entitled to the price difference. The Sponsor, in its sole discretion, and for any reason, reserves the right to: (i) place reasonable restrictions on the availability or use of a prize or (ii) substitute a prize or aspect of a prize of equal or greater value for a prize or aspect stated in the rules and advertising and promotion materials as being offered to be awarded.
In the event of a dispute over the identity of the person who submitted an online entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail account through which the entry was made. "Authorized account holder" is defined as 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. Potential winner may be requested to provide the Contest sponsor with proof that the potential winner is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the potentially winning entry.
