A Great Website for Kids

Clever Crazes (CCK) Official Contest Rules

Clever Crazes for Kids® offers contests (the "Contests") as part of an always-fun educational model for children in grades K–8. Points are earned in the educational learning games, skill & drill activities, and physical fitness challenge, Step It Up and Kickstart Your Brain®. Through colorful, exciting, animated educational games and activities, students earn points while learning material in all of the STEAM disciplines. These include Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. The math and vocabulary skill & drill activities offer students the opportunity to earn points while they improve their ability to answer questions quickly and accurately. Step It Up and Kickstart Your Brain® offers fun physical education with the opportunity for players to ethically enter their exercise "reps" to earn points. With over 50,000 facts and questions and more than 180 educational games and activities, students learn while earning points. This model of encouragement builds students' confidence, encourages curiosity, and instills a fundamental love of learning.

No products or services are sold on this website, and no purchase is necessary to participate or win. Please note that Apple®, Google®, and Amazon® are not sponsors of, nor are they involved in, any of the Clever Crazes for Kids® contests in any manner.

CONTESTS

The Contests include both weekly contests and monthly contests for students in grades K-8, which may be played on a computer or with an app on a tablet.

Note: As we are continually updating the activities on CleverCrazes.com, we acknowledge that there will be short periods of time when a few of the activities appearing on a tablet or iPad may not be exactly the same as those appearing on a computer. Since updates to Apple® and Android® are approved independently, there may be a lag time before you see some of the games.

Weekly Contests for Students in Grades K-8 (September 2, 2018–May 11, 2019)
The weekly CleverCrazes.com contests are weekly competitions for high scores in the "educational activities" (i.e. Learning Games and Skill & Drill). The educational activities are in You and the World of Art, You the Athlete, You and Biodiversity, You and Our Home Planet, You and Your Insides, You and Your Money, You in Outer Space, You the Citizen, You the Time Traveler, You and How Things Work, and Safe Routes to School. Additional educational game opportunities may be added from time to time.

As the students in grades K-8 play the educational activities, they accumulate points simultaneously for themselves and for their schools, home-school programs, or after-school programs. Playing on CleverCrazes.com together is a fun way to reinforce educational topics. To play as a classroom or group, a school or group may use a SMART Board or gather around a single computer to play. The educator logs in, chooses the adult's name on the account, selects "Play as a Classroom or Group," enters his/her PIN, and chooses a grade level.

If a school or after-school program has limited computer access, that program can use the site as a classroom or group and still be eligible to win a classroom or group prize, even if the students cannot play as individuals. Please note that students may play at home and accumulate points both on an individual level and for the school or after-school program if they log in with their school or after-school program usernames and passwords.

Monthly Contests for Students in Grades K-8 (September 2018–April 2019)
The monthly contests during the school year combine the scores earned in the educational activities (i.e., Learning Games and Skill & Drill) with the scores earned in the Step It Up and Kickstart Your Brain® fitness challenge. Our fitness challenge is accessed by selecting the "Step It Up and Kickstart Your Brain®" button on the right side of the screen at CleverCrazes.com (after logging in and selecting a player). We combine the scores from the educational activities and the fitness challenge, as we know that both mental and physical exercises help to build successful students.

Monthly Summer Contests for Students in Grades K-8 (June–July 2019)
Like the monthly contests during the school year, the monthly contests during the summer combine the scores earned in the educational activities (i.e., Learning Games and Skill & Drill) with the scores earned in the Step It Up and Kickstart Your Brain® fitness challenge.

ELIGIBILITY
The Contests are open to legal residents of the 50 states of the United States of America, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa enrolled as students in grades K-8 in any qualifying school or program. A public school or a school that is a non-profit entity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code is a qualifying school. An after-school program that is a non-profit entity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and submits a Qualifying Entity Compliance form is a qualifying program. A home-school program that is compliant according to its state rules and is willing to submit a Qualifying Entity Compliance form and a completed IRS Form W-9 is a qualifying program. A school or after-school program that is NOT a non-profit entity will become a qualifying school or program upon completion and submission of a Qualifying Entity Compliance form and an IRS Form W-9. A Qualifying Entity Compliance form and an IRS Form W-9 will be sent to a winning entity which has not previously submitted proof of qualification and must be returned within 14 days after the date of notification in order to receive a prize. Only qualifying schools are eligible to receive school prizes. Only qualifying programs are eligible to receive program prizes.

We at Clever Crazes for Kids® consider playing for four hours per day as a maximum reasonable time to enjoy learning, earning points, and winning prizes on CleverCrazes.com. Our goal at Clever Crazes for Kids® is to encourage students to have well-rounded and balanced lives. We want their time during, before, and after school to include sports/physical activities, creative play, doing homework, helping around their homes and/or in their communities, and developing interpersonal relationships and skills. The kids' use of CleverCrazes.com is to enhance and supplement their academics and arts appreciation and to encourage them to exercise. Therefore, if the website tech team determines that a student is using the website more than four hours per day and has exceeded the highest possible points that could be legitimately earned in that amount of time, the student's points will be disqualified. If a student's points are disqualified, those points will also be deducted from the overall points of the school, after-school program, classroom or group, or home-school program for that week's contest.

As stated above (under CONTESTS), a program may win a classroom or group prize, even if the students do not play as individuals.

As discussed below (under PRIZES), no student may win a weekly prize more than once during two consecutive calendar months, and no student may win a monthly prize more than once during any of the following contest periods: September–December 2018, January–April 2019, or June–July 2019. Also, no student may win more than one of any specific type of monthly prize (i.e., backpack, gym shoes, headphones, or hoodie) per school year (i.e., September 2018–April 2019). No school or after-school program may win a $100 prize and a $500 prize in the same week. No school classroom or after-school group may win a $100 prize more than once during any two consecutive calendar months. No school or after-school program may win a $500 prize more than once during any two consecutive calendar months. No home-school program may win a $100 prize more than once during any two consecutive calendar months.

Each student must be registered by a parent, guardian, teacher, home-school program educator, or after-school program coordinator in order to participate. In our efforts to remain child-safe, we will only interact with adults. As discussed below (under REGISTRATION), the Contest registration information must be completed and submitted in electronic format only on the contest site. Online entries made with multiple email addresses, under multiple identities, or through the use of any other device or artifice to enter a student multiple times will be deemed invalid with the following exception: A student may be entered to participate by a parent or teacher who lists a school's name with the student registration, and that same student may also be registered on the CCK website as a participant in an after-school program by the adult in charge of the program.

As discussed below (under PRIZE NOTIFICATION), all prizes and awards will only be distributed to registrants with valid email addresses. Adults will be contacted by email when a student or program wins a prize. As discussed below (under PRIZE REDEMPTION), the adult must respond with requested information within the time specified in the prize notification and complete any necessary forms to receive the prize.

Participants are subject to all notices for the Contests posted on the contest site, including, but not limited to, the Privacy Policy.

The Contests are subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations and are void where prohibited by law.

Immediate family members of employees of Clever Crazes for Kids® are not eligible to win prizes.

Educational Activities for Students in Grades K-8
In order to score points while completing educational activities, each student must follow all online instructions. Educational activities are the Learning Games and Skill & Drill found in Safe Routes to School and the Clever Crazes for Kids® "Worlds," currently: You and the World of Art, You the Athlete, You and Biodiversity, You and Our Home Planet, You and Your Insides, You and Your Money, You in Outer Space, You the Time Traveler, You the Citizen, and You and How Things Work. Weekly prizes are awarded based on participation in educational activities. Scores from participation in educational activities are also a component in earning monthly prizes.

Step It Up and Kickstart Your Brain® Fitness Challenge for Students in Grades K-8
In order to participate in the Step It Up and Kickstart Your Brain® fitness challenge component of the monthly contest, each kid must follow all online instructions to perform the exercises and record her/his repetitions (reps) accurately. For eligibility purposes on the Step It Up and Kickstart Your Brain® fitness challenge, our professional trainer has outlined what she considers to be a reasonable number of reps per exercise, per grade. If a student enters more than 50% over the reasonable number of reps, an ethics pledge reminder will appear, asking the student if the number of reps is correct. At that point, the student has the option to correct the number previously entered. If a student enters an unreasonable number of reps for an exercise (more than 50% over the number of reps defined as reasonable by our professional trainer) that is not corrected by the student immediately after entry, those reps will not be recorded until the correct number of reps is entered.

A student may enter reps for any given exercise only twice per day. Once the student has entered a reasonable number of reps twice during a day for an individual exercise, he/she will be asked to choose another exercise.

The above rules are in effect because it is our mission to encourage kids and their families and friends to live a healthy lifestyle, which includes an appropriate amount of balanced, daily exercise. We also are dedicated to encouraging the concept of "ethics" (i.e., honesty) from an early age. As parents, teachers, and adults in positions of responsibility, we hope you will join us by encouraging your kids to exercise, have fun, and play fairly by entering their accurate number of reps.
