ALL U.S. MAIL ENTRIES MUST INCLUDE A SELF-ADDRESSED, STAMPED LETTER SIZED ENVELOPE**. Winners will be notified by mail.
All items with insufficient postage will be returned to the sender, so please be sure to use current first class postage rates.
The deadlines stated are the "postmarked by dates". If you take your entry to the post office before the close of business on or before the deadline date, it should be postmarked on that day. Ask the Postal Clerk if you have any question as to what the postmarked date would be.
Because we go by the POSTMARKED DATE; EXPRESS MAIL, CERTIFIED MAIL, NEXT DAY DELIVERY, ETC is simply not necessary. Some people have wasted as much as $13 to $15 to make sure their entry arrives the next day.
Scholarship prizes will be held until college registration can be verified. Scholarships not claimed within six months following high school graduation will be considered to be forfeited and revert to the organization.
