The Sweepstakes will operate only during the stated CS Fair Event hours from 9:30am to 2:00pm on April 2, 2019 to April 2, 2019 (“Entry Period”).

Void where prohibited.


Registered Event attendees will receive one entry by visiting Event booths and Activities and scanning their own attendee badges. Attendees must get their badges scanned from at least 8 "Company" booths AND 5 "Educational" booths AND 2 "Activities". This minimum of 15 scans as described equals one entry. These thresholds are subject to change during the event at the discretion of the co-host. Any changes to the thresholds will be visible on the electronic displays at the Event.

The entry limit is one per person during the Entry Period

We are not responsible for excess, lost, late, damaged, or incomplete entries. If disputed, entries will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the attendee badge.


Pending confirmation of eligibility, potential prize winners will be selected by a representative of CSNYC or a designated Agent from among all eligible entries received twice during the Event.

Winners will be notified at the Event, and must claim the prize before the close of the Event.

Winners will be notified via the contact information provided during entry and may be required to complete a prize claim and tax form (“Forms”). If a selected winner cannot be contacted, is ineligible, fails to claim a prize or fails to return any Forms, the selected winner will forfeit their prize and an alternate winner will be selected time allowing.
