Contest is void where prohibited or restricted by law or school policy. By entering the Atid Day School Innovation Challenge, each entrant accepts and agrees to be bound by these official Contest rules (the “Official Rules”).
To be eligible, an individual entrant or all individual entrants in a group must be at least eighteen (18) years old at time of entry and a legal resident of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia. Contest entry is limited to one (1) individual entry and one (1) group entry per person. Additional entries from the same person outside the parameters of one (1) individual entry and one (1) group entry will be disqualified.
An “individual” entry is defined as an entry with one (1) “lead contact” and no “collaborators” listed on the entry form. A “group” video is defined as an entry with one (1) “lead contact” and one (1) to three (3) “collaborators.” Each group entry form requires one (1) “lead contact” and a list of the one (1) to three (3) “collaborators.” Group entries listing more than three (3) collaborators will be disqualified. The “lead contact” serves as the exclusive liaison between the Sponsor and the collaborators within a group.
Paid employees and immediate family members of Sponsors are not eligible to participate in this Contest. No purchase is necessary. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify ineligible entries; such entries will not be returned.
Each individual entrant and collaborator on a group entry must serve as a full or part-time K-12 classroom educator in a Jewish day school in the NYC metropolitan area, limited to the states of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut

4. Winner Selection:
Winners will be selected by a combination of a public vote (weighted 50%) and a panel of judges (weighted 50%) using the following judging criteria:
o Creativity: How does this technique modify, challenge, or innovate on the status quo? How original is your solution?
o Impact: What unaddressed need does this innovation fill? What was its impact on your students (or what impact do you envision)?
o Replicability: How easily can this innovation be reproduced to magnify the impact in other classrooms?
Judges will not be permitted to enter the contest. Judges will be required to abstain from judging if a conflict of interest is or becomes present.
Potential Winners will be considered official Winners once Sponsors have ascertained a potential Winner’s eligibility and full compliance with these Official Rules.
Six (6) incentives of $250.00 each will be randomly distributed to entrants (via the lead contact) during the submission period.
Twelve (12) incentives of $50.00 each will be randomly distributed to voters during the voting period.
Eight (8) Winners will be selected by a public vote and judging round as described above. Winners will be awarded a prize of $1000.00, which will be paid in full to the “lead contact” listed on the entry form. Should a group entry be selected as a Winner, it is the lead contact’s sole responsibility to divide winnings among the collaborators. The eight winners will be honored with the Atid Award at a ceremony in 2015.
