Errors and omissions may be accepted at the Promoter’s discretion. Failure by the Promoter to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights.

11.           Only one (1) entry permitted per person. For the removal of doubt, multiple entries per Eligible School are permitted, provided that each entry is substantially unique and each entry is submitted by a different entrant.

Both the entrants who submitted the winning entries and the Winning Eligible Schools will be notified by telephone and in writing via email.


14.           This is a game of skill and chance plays no part in determining the winners.  Each entry will be individually judged based on the literary and creative merit of the answer provided to the Promotional Question and photo or video (including how well they demonstrate good energy within the Eligible School and how well they demonstrate that the Eligible School will benefit from the prize).

17.           For the removal of doubt, the prize will be awarded to the Eligible School listed in the entry and not the person who submitted the entry. The installation of the 20kW solar system and inverter is conditional on a structural certification (obtained by the Promoter). In the event a winning Eligible School is unable to obtain this structural certification or refuses to accept these Terms and Conditions or the prize, that Eligible School (and the corresponding entry) will be disqualified and the Promoter will select the next valid reserve entry as the winning entry


18.           If for any reason a winning Eligible School does not take / redeem a prize (or an element of the prize) by the time stipulated by the Promoter, then the prize (or that element of the prize) will be forfeited.
