In the event that a potential winner of any prize valued at more than $25 is disqualified for any reason, Administrator will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, up to 3 alternates.  If the alternate potential winners are disqualified, the applicable prize will not be awarded.
