Households within the study area who complete the full survey are eligible for entry in a prize draw. The study area includes all households within the Cities of Edmonton, St. Albert, Fort Saskatchewan, Spruce Grove, Leduc and the Town of Stony Plain, as well as any other household located within the boundaries of the Leduc County, Lamont County, Parkland County, Strathcona County, and Sturgeon County, including all towns, villages, and rural areas within the outer boundaries of those counties. One (1) householder (the primary contact) over the age of 18 will be asked if he or she wishes to enter the prize draw. Households participating in the survey have the option to decline entry in the prize draw.
Employees of R.A. Malatest & Associates Ltd. or their family members may participate in the survey but are not eligible to be included in the prize draw. Employees of the City of Edmonton, Alberta Transportation, and the Capital Region Board may participate in the survey and are eligible to enter into the prize draw, with the exception of the City’s Edmonton & Region Household Travel Survey project team staff, who, if they participate in the survey, will be excluded from the prize draw.
One (1) flight for four (4) persons to any destination within continental North America (value equal to 100,000 Aeroplan points; no monetary value)
Ten (10) iPads (16 GB, wifi, 5th generation, value approximately $439).
Ten (10) pairs of tickets (2 tickets each prize) to a local NHL game (value approximately $260).
One hundred (100) recreation passes to City recreational facilities, YMCA facilities, or other local community recreation facilities (value ranges from $20 to $30, depending on the facility).
One hundred (100) $50 e-gift cards to local merchants (three choices will be provided to prize winners).
Odds of winning are approximately 1 in 90 (depending on the final number of completed household surveys, and the number of households that elect to enter the prize draw.)
Winners will be selected entirely at random, within two months of completion of all survey data collection and after R.A. Malatest & Associates Ltd. has confirmed the valid surveys are complete (anticipated mid-January 2016). Only one prize will be awarded per household. Winners will be contacted at the telephone number the entrant provided or confirmed during the survey process as the appropriate phone number to contact them at for the purpose of the contest, to inform them that they have won a prize, and the type of prize won, and to arrange for the prize to be sent to them. In the case of prizes having monetary value (i.e., an iPad), winners will be provided the option of receiving a cash award equivalent to the value of the good at the time of the prize award. Successful completion of the household travel survey, which is a detailed multi-step survey, is considered to be the skill-testing element required for eligibility to win a prize.
It is the sole responsibility of the contest entrant to provide a phone number at the time of the survey that he/she can be reached at in the future for the purpose of the prize draw. If the contact information provided/confirmed by the winner as the appropriate phone number to contact them at about the prize draw is no longer valid, or if the winner's contact is valid but he/she is unable to be contacted and does not return phone messages within two weeks of the first contact attempt, the winner will be considered to have withdrawn from the contest, and a new winner may be randomly selected from the remaining pool of eligible entrants. If the prize winner declines to accept the award, a new winner may be randomly selected from the remaining pool of eligible entrants.
