The total approximate retail value of the prize is $2,500, depending on exact itinerary. Actual value may vary based on fluctuations in price for airfare and/or accommodations, and distance between departure and destination. Ground transportation, meals, in-room or other personal charges at lodging (e.g., mini-bar, movies), telephone calls, gratuities, incidentals, and all other expenses are not included. Winner and travel companion must be available to travel on the same itinerary, as selected by Sponsor. Winner must be available to travel to coincide with the Awards ceremony in September, otherwise winner forfeits the prize and an alternate winner may be chosen. If, in the sole judgment of Sponsor, air travel is not required due to winnerís proximity to prize location, ground transportation may be substituted for roundtrip air travel. Unless child of winner, travel companion must be eighteen (18) years of age or older as of the date of departure. In addition $10,000 will be awarded to the charity of winnerís choice, subject to Sponsorís approval.
