The selected entrants (“Conditional Winners”) will be the entrants whose names appear on the entries selected at random.

If any Conditional Winner cannot be contacted and the skill-testing question administered within fourteen (14) days, an alternate winner (an "Alternate Conditional Winner") may be selected to receive the applicable prize (who will be contacted, and will be subject to disqualification, in the same manner). If a selected entrant is unable to be contacted after three (3) attempts, or does not respond to correspondence within five (5) business days, he/she forfeits the prize and another entrant may, at the sole discretion of FedEx Express Canada, be selected to receive that prize. Conditional Winners will be required to answer a time-limited mathematical skill testing question before being declared a winner. Conditional Winners must correctly answer the skill-testing question without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise, must be in compliance with these Rules and may be required to sign FedEx's form of consent, release and indemnity, which would include consent to the use of his/her name, city and/or photograph without further compensation in any publicity relating to the Contest.
