The Contestant receiving the highest score from among all eligible Wishes received will be deemed a potential Wish Prize winner. In the unlikely event of a tie, the tied Entry with the highest score in Criterion A (Relevance to Theme) will be deemed that Entry Period’s potential winner. If additional tiebreakers are needed, the same tie-breaking mechanism will be used; however, instead of the highest score in Criterion 1.a determining the potential winner from among the tied entries, the highest scores in each of Criteria 1.b through 2.b, in sequence (to the extent needed) will determine the potential winner.
