What will the winners receive?
Each of the six award category winners (individually a "Winner" or collectively, the "Winners") will receive (a) two tickets to the Steelers' final home game of the 2023-24 NFL regular season; (b) roundtrip airfare for the Winner and a guest (if applicable); (c) a two night stay at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA; (d) recognition during the game; and (e) subject to receiving the Winner's permission, a featured story on the Steelers' official website, Steelers' official social media accounts, Steelers' emails, and/or the Steelers' official mobile app via photos, videos and/or articles (collectively, the "Prize Package").
Exact Prize Package details are subject to change and shall be determined in the sole and absolute discretion of the Steelers. Approximate retail value ("ARV") of each Prize Package is $3,500. The Steelers reserve the right in their sole and absolute discretion to substitute any portion of the Prize Package with one of comparable or greater value.

Winners are fully responsible for any and all applicable federal, state and local taxes (including income and withholding taxes).
Winners and any travel companions must travel on the dates surrounding the Steelers' final home game of the 2023-24 regular season. Trips must be booked through the Steelers at least seven (7) days prior to departure. Winners and any travel companions from Mexico are responsible for obtaining and paying for any required visas, passports or other such legal documentation necessary to travel between Mexico and the United States. In the event Winners and any travel companions from Mexico do not have the proper legal documentation or the government of the United States denies their entry into the United States for any reason, the Steelers will not be responsible and no Prize Package will be awarded. Prize Winners and any travel companions are also responsible for complying with and adhering to any travel rules or restrictions related to COVID-19 or otherwise.
The Prize Package trip is subject to availability and blackout dates. Travel must be round trip. The Steelers will determine airline and flight itinerary in their sole discretion.

The Steelers will not replace any lost, mutilated, or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or certificates.
