The PulseWire Bold Ideas Contest

PulseWire is excited to announce its first ever online contest!

Enter to win three leadership coaching sessions (one hour each) via phone or Skype, as well as a $100 (USD) VISA Gift Card from PulseWire!

To enter the competition follow these two steps:

#1. First:

Join our Bold Ideas Group and start a post answering the following question:

What is your boldest idea for empowering women worldwide in 2008?

#2. Then Choose Option A or B:

OPTION A: Make a post to our ResourceExChange bulletin board. Answer a need or post your own offer.

OPTION B: Post to your personal journal. Write about anything you want—your passions, ambitions, hopes, dreams... the possibilities are endless!

You can increase your chances of winning by taking all three actions! Any registered user who completes all three actions (the group post, a post on ResourceExChange, and a post to your personal journal) will be entered into the drawing twice.

The deadline for entries is January 2.

Contest Guidelines

With the exception of PulseWire staff, interns, volunteers, and their immediate families, anyone 13 years of age or older may enter the contest. To qualify, entrants must have completed at least two of the three actions listed above by 11:59 pm, Pacific Standard Time on January 15, 2008.

The contest winner will be randomly selected from all qualifying entries. The prize winner will be announced on January 18, 2008 and the winner will be notified via email on that date.

The contest winner will then have 30 days to respond to PulseWire via phone or email in order to claim their prize. He or she must also validate entry by supplying proof of identification when claiming the prize.

Failure to respond (via email or phone call) and validate identification means that the winner will forfeit his/her prize and PulseWire will award it to the next winner selected in a repeat of the random drawing process.

PulseWire reserves the right to disqualify any contest entrants for a breach of these rules and/or any violation of the website as outlined in our Terms of Service.

Winners may not request substitutions of prize winnings. The winner is solely responsible for any and all taxes, fees, and any such additional costs that may be incurred.

PulseWire and/or its parent company World Pulse may not be held liable for any warranty, costs, damage, injury, or any other claims incurred as a result of usage of a prize. Nor are we liable for any loss arising out of or in connection with or resulting from any contest promoted by PulseWire.

Void where prohibited.

PulseWire reserves the right to alter any rules of any contest at any time. If you have questions or complaints about a PulseWire contest, please contact
