What Do I Have To Do To Enter The Contest? You need to join our folding team and meet the minimal requirements.

How Long Does This Contest Run? The contest begins September 7, and runs through October 26 (eight weeks). The latest you can enter is the beginning of the fifth week of the contest (October 5, 10 PM).

What Are The Minimum Requirements? To be eligible for the weekly prizes, you must earn at least 5 folding points that week.

To be eligible for the grand prize, you must earn at least 5 folding points for each of the last three weeks of the contest.

How Do You Pick A Winner? Both the weekly and grand prizes will be determined by drawings . Everyone who meet the minimum
requirement for the week or for the grand prize gets one ticker. This goes across

So Why Join Right Away? If you join before September 7, and earn five folding points for each week of the eight-week period, you get two tickets to win the grand prize rather than one.
