Official 2016 Drive for Excellence Contest Rules:

Burlington Subaru and Hyundai, WCAX-TV Channel 3, and The Hall Communications Radio Group (WOKO, WKOL, WIZN,  WBTZ, WJOY) will award a brand-new car to a lucky junior or senior high school  student on May 21, 2016.

Here's how to register: after your report card is issued, register online at BurlingtonCars.com and/or bring it to Burlington Subaru Hyundai on Shelburne Road in Burlington during regular business hours. For each A, students receive (2) entries into the contest. For each B, students receive (1) entry into the contest.

Report cards will be accepted and will be copied for file. Only original report cards will be accepted  and must either have a date or be signed and dated by a school guidance counselor. We cannot accept printed copies from a website; it must be an official, school-issued document. Progress reports are not eligible. Any grade(s) earned at the college level or from a technical center must appear on entrants' high school report card or transcript in order to be eligible. All entries are  subject to an accuracy audit provided by Angolano and Company.

The deadline to register all entries is 11:59pm on Monday, April 25, 2016, and all report cards must be received by the close of business on Saturday, April 30, 2016 (7pm). At that point, (75) finalists will be chosen at random, contacted, and invited to the Grand Prize Giveaway, scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 21, 2016.

All finalists must be present at the giveaway to win. NO EXCEPTIONS. You may not send a substitute in your place. The Grand Prize winner will have his or her choice between a Subaru Impreza or a Hyundai Elantra.

At the time of the drawing, the winner must be at least 16 years old and currently a junior or senior enrolled in, and attending a public or private high school in Vermont or northern New York. All students qualify based on the same criteria: report cards that are issued with an A-B-C-D-F grading system applied to each subject the student is enrolled in. Unless students enrolled in a home-study program can produce a document from the state or a school-governing body that places an A-B-C-D-F grade to each subject they are studying, they are not eligible to enter this contest since they are not graded using the same criteria as private and public schools.

The winner is responsible for all taxes, registration and associated costs. Winner must have a valid Vermont or New York state driver's license or learner's permit at the time of the giveaway. Winner must provide proof of insurance. Finalists will also have an opportunity to win a $1,000 scholarship from NBT Bank. A limited number of scholarships (the exact number to be determined at a later date prior to the giveaway) will be awarded prior at the grand prize giveaway. Students are eligible to win only (1) $1,000 scholarship. Winners will be required to fill out a W-9 tax form to claim their prize.

Employees and immediate family members of Burlington Auto Group, 802Cars.com Auto Group, WCAX-TV Channel 3, Hall Communications and competing media outlets are not eligible to enter. The odds of winning are based on the number of students that enter the contest and the number of contest entries each student receives.

All other Hall Communications General Contest Rules apply. For a list of these rules, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Hall Communications, 70 Joy Drive, South Burlington, VT 05403.
