About the Contest
Wouldn't you love to help out your favorite nonprofit Vermont charity this year with a gift of up to $1,000? What if we wrote the check? Enter our contest before March 1, 2014 for a chance to do just that.1
JobsInVT.com, Vermont's #1 employment resource, is celebrating 10 years of connecting job seekers and employers in Vermont! As a thank you, we launched our JobsInVT.com Live Work Give campaign, giving away a total of $6,000 to 10 different Vermont nonprofits with quarterly and year-end drawings - but we need your help!
We are randomly selecting five Vermont job seekers and five Vermont employers to pick the 10 Vermont nonprofit recipients for us!
All You Need to Do
Enter our contest once between February 1, 2013 and February 28, 2014. If you qualify, you may refresh the contest entry page and enter as both a job seeker and an employer (two entries).2
What We'll Do
- We will draw one job seeker's name and one employer's name at random from the contest entries at the end of each 2013 quarter.3
- Each of those quarterly job seeker winners will select one 501(c)(3) Vermont nonprofit charity organization to which we will donate $500 in their name.
- Likewise, we will then ask the quarterly employer winner to select one 501(c)(3) Vermont nonprofit charity organization to which we will donate $500 in the company's name.4
- At the end of the contest in March 2014, JobsInVT.com will select one last job seeker and one last employer from all the contest entries, who will make their Vermont nonprofit selections. For this last drawing, JobsInVT.com will donate $1,000 to each of those 501(c)(3) charities.
- Entering the contest before April 1, 2013 provides contestants with five chances to win - four quarterly drawings and one end-of-contest drawing.
- You can enter to win as both a job seeker and an employer. If you win as a job seeker, you can select your favorite Vermont nonprofit. If you win as an employer, you must work with your employer to select a nonprofit on their behalf.
- Quarterly drawing dates: April, 2013; July, 2013, October, 2013; January, 2014. Grand Award drawing date: March, 2014.
- The difference between the job seeker and employer entries is that employers can have multiple entries (several employees from the same company can enter the contest). We will choose only one employer winner each quarter and that winner will need to work with their company to select a Vermont nonprofit recipient.
No purchase necessary. Purchase will not increase chance of winning. Entry in this Contest constitutes acceptance of these official rules ("Official Rules"). $6,000 USD in total prizes.
The Live Work Give contest ("Contest"), sponsored by JobsInVT.com ("Sponsor"), is designed to give Vermont employers, and Vermont job seekers ("Nominators") the opportunity to designate a charity to which Sponsor will make a donation (as described below).
This Contest is only open to Vermont businesses and legal Vermont residents. Employees and directors of Sponsor, and their respective subsidiaries and affiliated companies, advertising, promotion or production agencies, web masters and web suppliers (and their respective IRS dependents (for U.S. residents), immediate family members and individuals residing in the same household) are not eligible to participate. Void where prohibited.
This Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on February 1, 2013 and ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on February 28, 2014 ("Contest Period").
How to Enter
- A Nominator can enter the Contest as a job seeker, representing himself/herself and choose any eligible Vermont nonprofit recipient. A Nominator can also enter the contest representing their employer, if they so wish. Therefore Nominators can submit two entries - one as a job seeker and one as an employer (representing their employer). When an employer entry is selected as a winner ("Winner"), the employer Nominator must work with their employer to choose a Vermont nonprofit recipient ("Nominee"). Submitting more than one job seeker entry and more than one employer entry will not improve the chances of winning. Five unique job seekers will win the ability to choose a recipient; and five unique employers will win the ability to choose a recipient. To enter this Contest, Nominators must complete and submit a Live Work Give entry form ("Entry Form") once during the Contest Period. Nominators may obtain this Entry Form online, at the Contest's landing page ("Landing Page").
