ELIGIBILITY: Entrants must be U.S. residents and students pursuing a bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree in a crop-related discipline, currently enrolled in good standing at one of the eligible universities. High school students who have been accepted to a university but are not currently enrolled in classes are not eligible to apply. For purposes of these Official Rules, “in good standing” means that the student has not been issued a reprimand, warning or other sanction by the applicable university because of his/her academic performance and/or conduct (on or off campus), notwithstanding the ultimate resolution of such reprimand/warning/sanction. In addition, students are ineligible for the Contest if they fail to comply with the requirements set forth above or (a) they have been convicted of a crime other than a routine traffic violation or have such criminal charges pending against him/her (for the avoidance of doubt, should the traffic violation involve any allegation of driving under the influence of alcoholic beverages and/or drugs, such traffic violation shall not be deemed “routine”) and/or (b) are subject to a restraining order.
This Contest is void in Northern Marianas, Guam, the Federal States of Micronesia and where prohibited by law. Employees, officers and directors of Syngenta, its parent company, affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising and promotional agencies and members of their immediate families (spouse, children, siblings, parents), and persons living in the same household (whether or not related) are ineligible. For the purpose of this Contest, students participating in Syngenta professional internship programs are eligible to apply. By participating, entrant (if a minor in their state of residence, their parent or legal guardian) agrees to these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and/or the independent judges, which are final and binding in all respects.
By checking this box, I verify my eligibility per the above requirements.
