Main Sponsor anticipates that the potential Grand Prize Winner will be contacted either by phone, e-mail, in writing, or in person via an “ambush style” visit by Main Sponsor representatives at the Grand Prize Winner’s home or other location on or about June 17-19, 2013 (subject to change).

Grand Prize Winner may also be required to travel to the HGTV Smart Home on “Winner Weekend” (currently scheduled for July 26-28, 2013, or other such dates to be determined by Main Sponsor in its sole discretion) at Main Sponsor’s expense. The Grand Prize Winner will be required to execute an affidavit of eligibility, a non-disclosure agreement, and release of liability and publicity (where permitted by law), and return same, fully-executed, within five (5) days of date of issuance of prize notification. If Main Sponsor is unable to contact the potential Grand Prize Winner within five (5) days of the initial attempt, if the potential Grand Prize Winner fails to return all requested forms fully-executed by the specified date, or if the potential Grand Prize Winner fails to comply with these Official Rules, including traveling on the dates and times required by Main Sponsor, his/her place as a possible Grand Prize Winner will be forfeited at Main Sponsor’s discretion, and an alternate Grand Prize Winner shall be selected.
