Terms and conditions

“Recycling at home Quiz “

1:2 Eligibility:

The quiz competitive element is only open to children or their parents/ carers of school groups or community groups who have taken part in a visit to a Recycle for Greater Manchester (R4GM) education centre, or who have received a visit from a Recycle For Greater Manchester education Officer as an outreach session. Other people can do the quiz as they wish but if they do not have a code, they cannot enter the competitive function of the quiz.

1.3 How to enter the quiz competition:

Participants to the R4GM education centre visits / or outreach session will be invited to enter. They will access the quiz online via a code that they will have been be given. The code will relate to their specific group /class.

1.4 Quiz prize:

A prize of recycling goody bags per member of your group will be awarded to the winning group. These will contain a minimum of; recycled shopping bag, recycled water bottle, recycled pencil or alternative items. No cash or separate alternative prizes will be available.

1.5 Section of quiz winner:

Participants who have visited or taken part in an R4GM education activity will have been given a code. They use that code to submit their quiz results. At the end of the Quiz month* see below a calculation will be made to determine the number of quiz completions as a percentage of the number of original participants to the R4GM visit / activity when they were issued the code. The group with the highest percentage of completions against their code to this quiz will win the prize. In the event of a tie, both groups will win.

*Explanation of “Quiz month” A winner will be selected as above once per calendar month Quiz period. The Quiz period will technically be one calendar month plus 14 days. This allows time for a group who visit/ have an outreach activity (and therefore who are given a code) within a few days of the end of a month, a chance to gain as many entries as possible compared to a group who visit earlier on in that month.
The winning group will be notified using the email address provided by the teacher / group leader on the booking confirmation of their activity with the R4GM education service. This email address will be used for that sole purpose and will be deleted as soon as the prize has been posted/ delivered.
The prize must be accepted within 14 days of the winners’ announcement email and will be delivered to an agreed address.
If the prize is not claimed as above the group with the second highest number of quiz entries will be deemed the winner.
The chosen winning entry is final, there is no appeal system and no correspondence will be entered into.
