The following are basic rules governing all contests conducted on Nova Scotia Adopt-A-Highway and the Nova Scotia Pick-Me-Up (AAH). If no other rules are published for a particular contest or promotion, the following rules will apply. In some instances, rules for individual contests and promotions may conflict with these rules in which case, the individual contest rules will take precedence over the basic rules. All contests are void where prohibited by law.
The prize(s) that may be awarded to the eligible winner(s) are not transferable, redeemable for cash or exchangeable for any other prize. Participants must provide valid and accurate contact information. If a winner cannot be contacted or is disqualified for any reason, AAH reserves the right to determine an alternate winner or not to award that winner’s prize, in its sole discretion.
Eligibility and Limitations
Participants and winner(s) must be Nova Scotia residents. Limit of one entry per person/group, unless otherwise specified. Only one (1) prize per household for the contest. In the case of email contests, limit of 1 entrant per email sent/received. There is no limitation on age, unless otherwise specified. Employees of AAH, the contest’s participating sponsors, and their advertising agencies, and members of the immediate family of any such persons are not eligible to participate and win. The term “immediate family” includes spouses, siblings, parents, children, grandparents, and grandchildren, whether as “in-laws,” or by current or past marriage(s), remarriage(s), adoption, co-habitation or other family extension, and any other persons residing at the same household whether related.

AAH reserves the right to disqualify any entry not conforming to the rules of the promotion at any time. AAH and its contest and promotional partners assume no responsibility for entry fraud committed by any entrant. In the event it is determined that an ineligible entrant wins a prize, AAH reserves all rights to the ownership and return of the prize and all costs associated with remedying any prize award to an ineligible entry or entrant.
