Rules & Prizes

by Urban Views RVA

The Urban Views Athlete of the Month is a promotion designed to provide recognition to high school athletes attending the area’s urban schools. Coaches and athletic directors from seven high schools will provide a photo and a brief introduction for each athlete that they submit.
The award will be presented to one male and one female high school student each month.
The individuals receiving the most votes in our online contest will be the month’s winner.
Each monthly winner will receive a plaque, a $100 award, and will be profiled in our athlete of the month feature.
The promotion runs from September to June.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. The Urban Views Athlete of the Month Contest (the “Contest”) is sponsored by Urban Views RVA.

Urban Views RVA will be entitled to interpret these Official Rules — including but not limited to rules regarding deadlines, selection of winners, prize restrictions, and eligibility — and all of its decisions are final. By participating, voting or accepting a prize, you agree to these Official Rules.

Contest begins on September 18, 2019 and ends on June 5, 2019. Selection of winners occurs on a rolling basis. Each selection period constitutes a separate contest with a separate pool of nominees (the “Nominees”), winners and prizes.

Each Nominee must attend one of the following high schools: Armstrong, Thomas Jefferson, George Wythe, Petersburg, John Marshall, Henrico, or Huguenot.

Student must participate in a sport during the school year while attending that high school. Athletes may participate in the following ways: (a) play on a school-run, interscholastic sports team (e.g. varsity softball), (b) play for a high school-affiliated club sports team (e.g., club hockey or club lacrosse); or (c) participate independently in a sport their high school does not offer (e.g., synchronized swimming). Athletes will not be eligible based on participation on a club team in a sport their high school does offer (e.g., elite club soccer or volleyball teams). A Nominee may be nominated in more than one month, but a Nominee cannot win
more than one Monthly Contest.

Public voting will be held to select Monthly Contest winners from September 18, 2019 until June 10, 2020. There will be 10 different Monthly Contest voting periods.

At the conclusion of each Voting Period, Sponsor will tabulate the voting results. Subject to verification of eligibility of the Nominee and the votes received, the Nominee who receives the highest number of votes during the Voting Period will be declared the winner for that period. If there is a tie for first, the Voting Period will be extended for successive 24-hour periods for voting involving only the tied Nominees as needed to break the tie.

Each Voter limited to one vote per 24 hours. The use of automated devices for voting is not permitted and will result in the disqualification of all votes received through that method and/or from that Voter, if discovered by Sponsor. Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed, script, macro, or any other automated means or similar entry methods or agents, vote exchange websites, vote “farming” or other method to vote or unfairly increase votes, as determined by Sponsor in their sole discretion, is prohibited and will void all votes submitted by that Voter, if discovered by Sponsor. Sponsors will determine the eligibility of Voters and votes in their sole discretion and may disqualify votes at any time. Moreover, if Sponsor conclude, in their sole discretion, that any Nominee has colluded with a Voter who has violated these Official Rules or has participated in or actively encouraged such activity, whether directly or indirectly, Sponsor may disqualify that Nominee from further participation in the Contest and or eligibility for any prize.

Student Prizes: For each Monthly Contest, there will be two student winners, one male and one female. Each such winner will receive an editorial spotlight in UrbanViewsRVA.com, a plaque, and a $100.00 award.
By accepting a prize, each winner grants Sponsor the right to publicize his or her name, photographs (including the use and appearance of winner’s photograph on Sponsor’s websites).

Winners (and parents or legal guardians of winners who are minors) will also be required to sign and return a liability and publicity release and affidavit of eligibility, and must do so by deadlines provided by Sponsors.
