Claiming Prize

Winner will be contacted by the WV Community Development Hub and may be provided with additional requests for information necessary to claim the prize. Verification of all requested information must be presented to claim the prize.

In the event that an entry is deemed invalid, a discrepancy is found, or the winner cannot be timely located based upon the contact information submitted, an alternate shall be used in place of the ineligible or unlocatable winner. It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to ensure the accuracy of all information provided, including contact information, and the applicant agrees to hold harmless the WV Community Development Hub and all officials involved in the Promotion against any and all potential claims related to the Promotion, as further described below.

In the event that the winner does not wish to receive the prize, refuses or fails to provide verification information, does not properly and timely respond to the initial contact of the WV Community Development Hub officials, that winner may be deemed ineligible, and an alternate may be used. If it is determined that an alternate will be used, the winner that was deemed invalid will forfeit any prizes associated with the Promotion. Alternates will be used in the order in which they were selected (i.e., alternate one (1) will be used first, alternate two (2) second, etc.) as forfeited spots become available.
