6. Prize Winner
(a) The Joint Utility Safety Team will endeavour to select the winner within seven (7) business days of the end of the Contest Period, however, the volume of entries, and potential difficulty in contacting a winner, may delay the selection. Selection will be by random selection using a random number generator computer program that will pull from all eligible entries.
(b) Once selected, the Joint Utility Safety Team will contact the participant identified and associated with the selected entry by a direct (private) Instagram message. By entering this contest, you are hereby consenting to the Joint Utility Safety Team sending you direct messages to your Instagram account. Only three attempts will be made, over a three-day period, with the first attempt made immediately after the selection is made. If direct contact is not made with the selected participant for any reason within seventy-two (72) hours of the first attempt, if the selected participant is contacted but the Joint Utility Safety Team is subsequently unable to re-contact the selected participant to complete prize administration, or if the selected participant is unwilling or unable to comply with these Official Rules, all in the Joint Utility Safety Team opinion and discretion, he or she will thereby forfeit the prize with no further recourse against the Joint Utility Safety Team, and another participant's entry will be selected in the same manner the first entry was selected, and so on until a winner is contacted.
(c) Once contacted, the selected participant will be required to answer a skill testing question that will be administered on the phone. If the correct answer is provided the selected participant will be asked to provide his or her mailing address and other details pertaining to the contest and the prize. Details include but are not limited to, shipping instructions, delivery details, contact information, eligibility validation (including birthdate), and general questions including, without limitation size information. The Joint Utility Safety Team may require the selected participant to engage in a telephone conversation through which the selected participant will be asked for such information.

(d) Upon the Joint Utility Safety Team verification that the selected participant is in compliance with all of the Official Rules, the selected participant will be declared a winner. If, for any reason, the selected participant is in breach of these Official Rules or is ineligible, the selected participant will not be entitled to the prize.
(e) The prize will be mailed to the winner’s home address. The Joint Utility Safety Team will mail the prize within a reasonable time after the winner is determined, but does not guarantee any timeframe in which the prize will be delivered.
