Join PreventDisease on Facebook, Test Your Knowledge and Win Great Prizes
On September 5th, 2012, we introduced a testing ground to quiz all the sharp and educated readers that visit PreventDisease.com daily. If you would like to participate in testing your knowledge on nutrition, health and wellness, we'll be offering a special incentive, but it will only be on facebook.
For a limited time, facebook users will have the chance to win a full prize kit courtesy of PreventDisease.com. Click on the image below for details on the prizes.
The goal here is education and to demonstrate how well-informed our audience is (because we know you are).
However, you must abide by the guidelines to
play and win.
1. To participate, you must LIKE our page on facebook by clicking here. If you already like our page, no action is necessary. Questions may be posted with our without notice and at different time periods throughout the day to give all facebook users across all times zones a chance to participate.
2. There will be no repeat winners. If you won once, you can't win the same prize again.
There is only one answer permitted per participant per question. The first answer from each participant is the only one that will count. Multiple guesses will not be accepted.
4. Although there may be more than one answer, the most correct answer wins and there will only be one correct answer per question. Format will be either multiple choice or fill in the blank.
5. If two or more correct answers appear from different participants with the same timestamp, the first answer posted by facebook will win.
6. The answer must be stated assertively as "the answer is _______." Unsure answers such as "I think it's" or "maybe it's" or using a question mark (?) at the end of your answer will not be accepted even if you have correctly stated the right answer. In other words, we don't want lucky guess winners. If you delete any answer after posting, you automatically remove yourself from the competition.
7. So that others can quickly scroll up to see who won, and also see the correct answer, please do not keep guessing once the winner has been declared and
review the previous comments first before answering.
8. There will be a 30 minute time limit with no hints. The prize kit will only be open for winning during this period. Should the 30 minutes expire, no prize kits
will be rewarded for correct answers after the expired time.
9. If you're ready to play and win, be ready to respond to accept your prize. If the winner does not respond to our facebook message within 1 hour of requesting their address, the prize will be
awarded to the second place runner-up winner and so on, no exceptions. Requests for delivery address will initiate less than 5 minutes after the winner has been declared. You can also message us directly by clicking the "Message" button on the top right side of our facebook page.
10. Prize kit delivery will be worldwide, but please note that delivery times may vary and can take up to 15 business days depending on your location.
Good luck to everyone and please do email us if you have any further questions, concerns or suggestions.
