The IDEAL National Championship Contest


I, the undersigned participant in The IDEAL National Championship Contest (“Contest”), in consideration of being allowed to participate in the Contest, and related events and activities, for myself, my personal representatives, my heirs, assigns and next of kin represent and agree to the following:


1.     I represent that I am eligible to participate in the Contest and that I am age of majority or older in my state of residence (19 years or older in DE, AL or NE;  21 years or older in MS, and 18 years or older in all other states) and have valid photo identification to prove my age, which I can furnish to Contest organizers upon request.


2.     I agree to grant and release all rights on the use of my name, likeness, biographical data, image, video  and performance in whole or in part, before, during and after the Contest (collectively my “Image”) for use by IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., their agents, sponsors, and distributors (collectively (“IDEAL”), in any form of media whatsoever, without restrictions and without any compensation.  I also hereby waive and release, on behalf of myself, successors, heirs and assigns and anyone else claiming under me or on my behalf, all ownership or other property rights to my performance in the Contest and all related activities, and any causes of action relating to the use of my Image, in perpetuity in all media whatsoever.


3.     I acknowledge and fully understand that by participating in the Contest, and in the event, I am a semi-finalist or finalist, I will be engaging in activities that involve risk of injury, which might result not only from my own actions, inactions, or negligence, but also the actions, inactions or negligence of others, the rules of play, and the condition of the premises or of any tools used.  Further, there may be other risks not known or not reasonably foreseeable at this time.


4.     I understand that COVID-19 is a highly contagious and dangerous disease, and that contact with the virus that causes COVID-19 may result in significant personal injury or death.  I agree to follow any requirements IDEAL has implemented in order to lessen the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in connection with the Contest and agree that IDEAL is not responsible, in any manner, for any expense, risk, injury or death arising out of, or related to, COVID-19. I am fully aware that participating in the Contest (including any related travel) carries certain inherent risks related to COVID-19 transmission that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid such risks (“Inherent Risks”). Inherent Risks may include, but are not limited to, (1) the risk of coming into contact with individuals or objects that may be carrying COVID-19; (2) the risk of transmitting or contracting COVID-19, directly or indirectly, to or from other individuals; and (3) injuries and complications ranging in severity from minor to catastrophic, including death, resulting directly or indirectly from COVID-19 or the treatment thereof. I understand that the risks of COVID-19 may result in risks including but not limited to loss, personal injury, sickness, death, damage, and expense, the exact nature of which are not currently ascertainable, and all of which are to be considered Inherent Risks. I further acknowledge and understand that participants in the Contest will not be required to be vaccinated in order to participate.   


5.     I hereby voluntarily accept and assume all of the foregoing risks, including Inherent Risks, and accept personal responsibility for all expenses, medical or otherwise, following such damages, injury, disability, or death. 


6.     I represent and warrant that I do not suffer from any medical condition or disease that might in any way hinder or prevent me from participating in the Contest, including, to my knowledge, COVID-19.  In the event I am exposed to COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19, or am diagnosed with COVID-19 during the period I am set to participate in the Contest, I agree that I will forfeit my participation and will not attend the Contest in order to protect others from contracting COVID-19.  


7.     To the extent permitted by law, I fully RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE and COVENANT NOT TO SUE IDEAL, or its respective administrators, shareholders, directors, officers, agents, employees, contractors, other participants, sponsoring agencies, sponsors, advertisers, distributors, and if applicable, owners and lessors of the premises used to conduct the Contest (collectively the “Releasees”), from any liability to me, my heirs and next of kin for any and all claims, demands, losses, rights of action, expenses or damages on account of damage to personal property, injury or death caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of any one or more of the Releasees whatsoever, whether arising now or in the future, in any way related to or arising out of or in connection with the Contest.  I further agree that if, despite this release, waiver of liability and assumption of risk, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against one of the Releasees as a result of my involvement in the Contest, I will INDEMNIFY, SAVE, and HOLD HARMLESS each of the Releasees from any expenses, attorney’s fees, loss, liability, damage, or cost which any of the Releasees may incur as a result of such demand.


8.     I fully acknowledge and understand that I do not have any right to participate in this Contest and related activities and that I am being permitted to participate in consideration of my execution of this document.


9.     This Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver of Liability Agreement (“Agreement”) shall be binding on me, my heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns. I expressly agree that this Agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by applicable laws, and that if any portion of this Agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. This Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties relating to the subject matter, and shall not be altered, modified, amended, waived, or supplemented in any manner whatsoever except by a written agreement signed by both parties hereto or their duly authorized representatives. This Agreement may be executed, made, and delivered electronically.
