Launa, thanks for bringing pride to your work (and work to your pride).

 Quote mark  As a transgender owner/operator, Launa is merging her two worlds: trucking and the LGBTQ2+ community. It’s why she drives a highway semi with a 53’ stepdeck for the Calgary Pride parade.

Bert, thanks for being community minded on and off the road.

 Quote mark  53 years on the road sounds tiring. Not for Bert. He is still as active as ever in his community. Someone’s got to organize the tractor pull.

When he's not driving forward, he's giving back.

 Quote mark  Paramdeep cares about people. It’s why he drives slowly and safely, with a zero-accident record. It’s also why he spends his spare time volunteering in runs for injured Canadian veterans.

The online entry form must be fully completed with all of the required information, as indicated on the form itself at www.petro-pass.ca/hatsoff. If any required information is not included in the entry form, the entry will not be an eligible entry for the Contest and will be deemed null and void.

1.3 Contest Entry: Upon submission of the fully completed Contest entry form, Eligible Drivers will be given one (1) entry into the Contest.

1.4 Contest Entry Restrictions: There is a limit of one (1) eligible entry per Eligible Driver for the Contest. Each entry will be reviewed and deemed eligible or ineligible by Suncor in accordance with these Rules. Incomplete, subsequent or ineligible entries will be considered void and not an eligible entry into the Contest.

1.5 Awarding of Prizes: Prizes will be awarded to the selected Eligible Driver whose contact information (name, phone number and email address) has been given at time of the enrolment in the Contest via the online entry form and who have complied with all of the Rules.

2. Prize

2.1 Prizes: Six (6) prizes will be awarded. Each Prize is a $1,000 CAD Petro-Canada gift card (“Prize”) which can be used to purchase motor fuel or other items sold at Petro-Canada branded retail sites.

A panel of judges (see Rules 2.3 and 2.4) will select the finalists from Eligible Drivers, who will then have a chance to win a Prize.

Each Prize must be accepted as awarded. No cash alternatives, substitution or transfers of the Prizes will be allowed. Without limiting the foregoing, Prize winners shall not be entitled to convert the Prize for the credit towards past purchases at Petro-Canada retail sites or into cash.

2.2 Odds: The odds of being selected to win a Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period and on the selection of Eligible Drivers by the panel of judges (see Rules 2.3 and 2.4).

2.3 Judging: A panel of judges consisting of four (4) Suncor employees will select potentially winning entries based upon the character and reputation of Eligible Drivers nominated as described in the nomination form, including, but not limited to, his/her record and deeds as a professional truck driver, safe and reliable driving record, community involvement, and enthusiasm for Petro-Pass. Suncor may contact Cardholders to validate and confirm any information provided on an Eligible Driver’s entry, and may disqualify any Eligible Driver should the information presented for an Eligible Driver be determined by Suncor (as through the panel of judges), acting reasonably, to be false or different than what Suncor determines to be the correct information following Suncor’s review and investigation. Judging will be completed by July 22, 2019.

Each judge will rank their top fifteen (15) Eligible Driver entries from all of the eligible entries received during the Contest Period. The top six (6) Eligible Drivers with the highest rankings from the judges will be the selected Eligible Drivers to be eligible to win a Prize, subject to Rule 2.4. Once an Eligible Driver has been determined by the panel of judges to be ranked in the top six (6) entries from the Contest and the information in the Eligible Driver’s entry is determined to be correct, and the Eligible Driver has met all of the requirements of the Contest under the Rules, Suncor may award a Prize to each of the top six (6) Eligible Drivers and will then announce all Prize winners from the Contest at 5 pm on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at 2489 North Sheridan Way, Mississauga, ON.

Winners may be featured as part of future Petro-Pass marketing materials in 2019, as determined by Suncor. If, after being selected as a potential winner by the panel of judges, Suncor determines that the information submitted in the entry of a selected Eligible Driver is incorrect or false, Suncor is entitled to remove the Eligible Driver’s entry into the Contest, and the initially selected Eligible Driver will be disqualified, his/her right to the Prize will be forfeited, and such selected Eligible Driver will have no further recourse towards Sponsor or anyone involved in the Contest. The next Eligible Driver, as determined by the panel of judges, will be notified of such Eligible Driver being selected.

Each selected Eligible Driver will be contacted by email by a Suncor representative. At least three (3) attempts to contact the selected Eligible Driver by email will be made within the fourteen (14) days following the winner selection. If Suncor is unable to contact the selected Eligible Driver within fourteen (14) days following the judging, the next highest ranked Eligible Driver, as determined by the Suncor judges, will be notified of such Eligible Driver being selected and the initially selected Eligible Driver will be disqualified, his/her right to the Prize will be forfeited, and that selected Eligible Driver will have no further recourse towards Sponsor or anyone involved in the Contest.

There is a limit of one (1) prize per Eligible Driver for the Contest.

2.4 Prize Claim: In order to win a Prize, each selected Eligible Driver must first correctly answer a time limited, mathematical, skill-testing question to be administered by telephone, and then he or she will be required to sign and return a standard Declaration and Release form confirming compliance with the Rules, the eligibility requirements, acceptance of the Prize as awarded, and release the Sponsor from all liability. Subject to Rule 2.1, no substitution for, or transfer of Prizes, will be allowed. The selected Eligible Driver will have seven (7) days to return the Declaration and Release form upon receipt.

If the selected Eligible Driver does not do so, the next Eligible Driver, as determined in the sole discretion of the panel of judges, will be notified of such Eligible Driver being selected and the initially selected Eligible Driver will be disqualified, his/her right to the Prize will be forfeited and that selected Eligible Driver will have no further recourse towards Sponsor or anyone involved in the Contest.
