HOW TO ENTER: To enter, eligible parent/legal guardians must complete an Official Entry Form, available during the Sweepstakes Period at either www.msuspartans.com or www.msufcu.org/kickoffkids (the “Websites”) and submit the Official Entry Form as directed prior to 11:59 p.m. ET on November 10, 2017. Limit: One (1) entry per person. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. In the event more than the stated allowable entries is received from any one person or email address, the first entry processed will be considered the only valid entry received. Any attempt by an entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple or different email addresses or identities will void that entrant’s entries and that entrant may be disqualified. In the event of a dispute, entries will be deemed made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of entry.

Any potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.
FOURTEEN (14) PRIZES (two per Game): Two (2) winners will be selected for each of the following seven (7) Michigan State University 2017 home football games – 9/2/17, 9/9/17, 9/23/17, 9/30/17, 10/21/17, 11/4/17, and 11/18/17 (“Game(s)”). Each prize consists of two (2) tickets to one (1) Game, one (1) sideline pass (for the child aged 6–11 designated on the selected entry) and one (1) parking permit (the “Prize”). As a part of the Prize, the designated children will be on the sidelines during the game and will alternate running onto the field after each MSU kickoff to retrieve the kicking tee. The order of participation will be determined by the age of the children – the youngest child participating first. In the event that only one (1) MSU kickoff is performed, no opportunity will be given for the second child at that (or other) games. The approximate retail value of each prize is $100. All games are subject to rescheduling. As ticket holders, all recipients of Prizes are subject to the terms and conditions of MSU football game tickets.
