2019/01/01 Ottawa Airport/YOW, 5 Millionth Passenger, in-person attendance and photo req'd, FB/TW (Ottawa area best)

HOW TO ENTER THE YOW 5 MILLIONTH PASSENGER CELEBRATION (THE “CONTEST”)

Entrants must find the “Sparty on the Shelf” located in one of the shops or restaurants in a variety of publicly accessible pre-security and post-security retail and food sections of the Ottawa International Airport terminal and post a publically-viewable photo of themselves with Sparty tagging the Ottawa International Airport handle on Facebook or Twitter in order to enter for a chance to win.

There are two ways to enter the Contest: through i) Facebook or ii) Twitter:

To enter on Facebook, you must:
“like” the Airport Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/FlyYOW;
post a publically-viewable photo of yourself with Sparty on the Shelf with the hashtag #YOW5million; and

To enter on Twitter, you must:
follow the Airport Twitter feed at www.Twitter.com/FlyYOW;
post a publically-viewable photo of yourself with Sparty on the Shelf with the hashtag #YOW5million; and
tag the Ottawa International Airport handle.

Each person can make one entry per each Sparty on the Shelf location in the Airport using each of the two ways to enter the Contest (Facebook and Twitter), for a total of two entries per person per Sparty on the Shelf location up to a maximum of 10 entries. If you are found to have entered using multiple social media accounts or multiple e-mail addresses, all your Contest entries will be void.

To be eligible, entries must be received by 11:59 PM EST the day prior to each draw date.

For certainty, (remaining) dates of the draws are:

Friday, December 21, 2018;

Friday, December 28, 2018; and
Wednesday, January 2, 2019 (Grand Prize draw).

For example, to be eligible for the first draw on December 17, 2018, your Contest entry must be posted online/received by 11:59 PM EST on December 16, 2018.

Entries from each draw period roll into the next draw period as well. Anyone who makes a valid entry between December 12, 2018 at 00:01 AM EST and January 1st, 2019 at 11:59 PM EST will be eligible for the Grand Prize draw (excluding those who have won a Raffle Prize).
