NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.

VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. SOME RESTRICTIONS MAY APPLY.

  1. ELIGIBILITY: "The Ultimate Cool School Science Day" Sweepstakes ("Sweepstakes") is offered only in the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia (collectively, "U.S.") and is open only to legal U.S. residents who are 18 years of age and older and who are employed, during the Term of the Sweepstakes and when prize is awarded, as teachers at an accredited public, private or parochial elementary school in the U.S. containing any class with students from Kindergarten through Grade 6, that has a 501(c)(3) or 509(a)(1) tax-exempt designation. Employees of Discovery Communications, LLC ("Sponsor"), its promotional partners, their direct and indirect respective subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies, Promotion Mechanics, Inc. ("Sweepstakes Administrator"), and the immediate family members (spouses and parents, children and siblings and their spouses, regardless of where they live) or members of the same households (whether related or not) of such individuals (collectively, "Sweepstakes Entities") are not eligible. Eligibility may be verified by Sponsor at any time. Any determinations of eligibility will be made by the Sponsor whose decisions are final.

    Eligible teachers who enter the Sweepstakes will be deemed to have entered as employees of their respective schools. Thus, these rules are binding upon both you, as a teacher and employee of your school, and your respective school. Therefore, by entering into the Sweepstakes, you represent and warrant that your school has full knowledge of your actions and has consented to your entry, including your potential receipt of the prize described below.

  2. TERM: The Sweepstakes begins at 5:00:00 PM Eastern Time ("ET") on September 10, 2013 and ends at 5:00:00 PM ET on February 27, 2014 (the "Term").

  3. TO ENTER: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Visit the Sweepstakes page at www.siemensscienceday.com and access the Sweepstakes entry form. Complete the entry form by providing all requested entry information, including your name, address, school in which you teach, grade(s) or class(es) taught, and contact information. All entries must be received by Sponsor's server by 5:00:00 PM ET on February 27, 2014. Limit one (1) entry per person per day.

  4. RANDOM DRAWING AND PRIZE: On or about March 6, 2014, the Sweepstakes Administrator, an independent judging organization, will conduct a random drawing from among all eligible entries received during the Term to select one (1) Grand Prize winner from among teachers who teach in Kindergarten through Third Grade, and one (1) Grand Prize winner from among teachers who teach in Fourth Grade through Sixth Grade. Each Grand Prize will consist of an all-school science day assembly from Siemens Foundation and Discovery Communications, LLC. Among other conditions detailed in these rules, the granting of each Grand Prize will be subject to all applicable laws, rules and regulations and the approval of any applicable school and/or governmental agency as well as the acceptance by the elementary school and/or governmental agency of Sponsor's requirements and conditions in connection with the award and execution of the prize. There is no approximate retail value ascribed to a Grand Prize since it is a promotional and educational event.

    The winning teachers will be notified by email, phone, postal mail and/or express mail at Sponsor's sole discretion following the random drawing. If a potential winner does not respond to the notification attempt by the time period specified therein, then such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be selected from among the applicable eligible entries received during the Term. With respect to notification by telephone, such notification will be deemed given when the potential winner engages in a live conversation with Sponsor or when a message is left on the potential winner's voicemail service or answering machine by the Sponsor, whichever occurs first. Except where prohibited by law, each potential winner and an authorized representative of the winning schools shall be required to sign and return a Declaration of Eligibility and Liability and Publicity Release and provide any additional information that may be required by Sponsor. If required, potential winners must return all such required documents within the time period specified therein or such potential winner will be deemed to have forfeited the prize and another potential winner to replace the forfeited winner will be selected from among the applicable eligible entries received during the Term. Sponsor will arrange and coordinate the dates of the assembly events with the winning schools. A potential winner will be deemed to have forfeited the prize should Sponsor and such winner's school fail to arrange and hold the assembly event within one (1) year of such potential winner being notified.

  5. PRIZE RESTRICTIONS: Taxes on prizes and all expenses related to acceptance and use of the prizes not otherwise specified are the sole responsibility of winner and/or the winner's school. Prizes cannot be transferred, substituted or redeemed for cash or any other consideration except at Sponsor's sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value if a prize cannot be awarded as described for any reason. Odds of winning will be determined by the number of eligible entries received.

PERSONAL INFORMATION: Please note that by entering this Sweepstakes and by checking the "opt-in" boxes on the entry form for this promotion, you are [a] agreeing that the Sponsor may share your entry information (including your name, address, email address, etc.) with our promotional partners and other third parties; and [b] granting the Sponsor, our promotional partners and other third parties with which we choose to share your information, permission to contact you about our upcoming shows, promotions or for other reasons.
