The Drawing begins at 8:00 a.m. (PST) on June 27, 2014, and ends at midnight (PST) on August 8, 2014 (the “Drawing Period”). The Contest will take place at Seaport Celebration at marine Terminal 4, 11040 N. Lombard Street, Portland, OR (“Seaport Celebration”), on August 16, 2014 (the “Event Date”).

Children of employees, officers, commissioners, and directors of the Port, the advertising or promotional agencies of the Port, or any others associated with the Competition are not eligible to enter. The Port’s decisions with respect to eligibility of entrants are in the Port’s sole discretion and are final in all respects. The Competition is void where prohibited by law.
How to Enter: Entries will be accepted online only. Visit www.seaportcelebration.com (the “Competition Website”); the legal guardian age 18 or older of an eligible minor child entrant must enter all required information during the Drawing Period to enter a minor child in the Drawing. No other forms of entry will be accepted. Limit one entry per person; multiple entries on behalf of the same child are void. No purchase or payment is required to enter or win.
Drawing Winner Selection and Notification: The Port will select three separate Drawing winners by conducting a random drawing from all eligible entries at the conclusion of the Drawing Period (“Primary Drawing Winners”). At such time the Port will also randomly select three separate entrants to serve as replacement Drawing winners should one or more of the Primary Drawing winners not participate in the Contest for any reason (“Backup Drawing Winners”). The Port will contact Primary Drawing Winners and Backup Drawing Winners within 24 hours from the date Drawing winners are selected. At such time the Port will provide both Primary Drawing Winners and Backup Drawing Winners with specific instructions about Contest participation. If any Primary or Backup Drawing Winner cannot be contacted within 72 hours from notice of selection, the right to participate in the Contest will automatically be forfeited without notice and an alternate will be randomly selected. See also the additional information below under “Drawing Winners’ Participation in the Contest.” Drawing entrants that do not win will not be notified.
Odds of Winning the Drawing: The odds of winning the Drawing portion of the Competition are dependent on the number of eligible entries received.
Drawing Winners’ Participation in the Contest: In order to participate in the Contest all Primary Drawing Winners and their legal guardians must attend Seaport Celebration in person. In order to have a chance to replace a non-participating Primary Drawing Winner as a Contest participant, Backup Drawing Winners and their legal guardians must also attend Seaport Celebration in person. All Primary Drawing Winners and Backup Drawing Winners must check in with Contest administrators at Seaport Celebration by 1:30 p.m. on the Event Date. If a Primary Drawing Winner does not participate in the Contest for any reason, the Contest administrators will randomly select a replacement Contest participant from among the Backup Drawing Winners in attendance at Seaport Celebration. If all Primary Drawing Winners participate in the Contest, Backup Drawing Winners will not participate in the Contest and will not have a chance to win the Contest Prize. The Port’s selection of Contest participants will be final and binding in all respects. Winners must meet all eligibility requirements set forth in these Official Rules to qualify to participate in the Contest.
Contest Information: Participating Drawing winners in attendance at Seaport Celebration may compete in the Contest, which is a cooking contest known as the Kid Creations Chef Competition. Three participating Drawing winners will each be paired with a professional chef of the Port’s designation, in the Port’s sole discretion. The three teams must each create a food dish that features some of Oregon’s agricultural export commodities. Ingredients will be provided. Participants will have a fixed amount of time, designated by the Port in its sole discretion, to prepare, cook, and present a food dish to a panel of judges. The Port will convene the panel of judges in its sole discretion. The food dishes will be judged based on the extent of use of the local agricultural ingredients provided, the creativity of the dish, and the overall presentation. Port-designated Competition representatives will administer all aspects of the Contest in accordance with these Official Rules. To the extent a Contest issue is not addressed herein, such representatives may administer the Contest as may be necessary to conduct the Contest as is generally intended by these Official Rules, in the administrators’ sole discretion. Contest administrators may announce additional Contest Rules on the Event Date, as necessary to implement these Official Rules. All decisions with respect to the Contest, including the judges’ selection of a winner, will be final in all respects.
Odds of Winning the Contest: The odds of winning the Contest portion of the Competition are one in three provided that three teams participate in the Contest.
Contest Prize: The panel of judges will select one Contest winner based on the evaluation criteria set forth above. The child participant on the winning team will win a prize basket full of items related to Oregon’s agricultural exports and users of the Port’s Terminal 6. The prize must be claimed in person at the Seaport Celebration registration desk on the Event Date, and will not be distributed in any other manner. The winner may be required to provide documentation demonstrating compliance with the eligibility requirements of these Official Rules when claiming the prize. The Port’s decisions with respect to such compliance are in the Port’s sole discretion and are final in all respects.

If such malfunction, error, disruption, or damage occurs and impairs the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper play of the Competition, the Port may, in its sole discretion, suspend or terminate the Competition by posting a notice at the Drawing Website or by an announcement at Seaport Celebration. Persons found tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Competition, or whom the Port believes to be causing malfunction, error, disruption, or damage will be disqualified in the Port’s sole discretion. The Port reserves the right to void all Drawing entries made through any robotic, automatic, mechanical, programmed, or similar entry duplication method and to disqualify any individual using such a method.
