    To celebrate our 5th year, it's proper that we have an event that will last the rest of the year!

    During the months September, October, November, and December we will be running four very special contests. Each month the contest will be different from the last. They will be challenging.

    But what makes these exceptional?

    The prizes for EACH month are as follows:

    1st place - A $500 Amazon Giftcard
    2nd place - A $250 Amazon Giftcard
    3rd place - A $100 Amazon Giftcard

    Thinking you might not have a chance against some of our seasoned players?

    There's good news!

    Any player can only place ONCE. That means if someone places 1st, 2nd, OR 3rd in September, they are not eligible to place for any of the other contests.

    No less than 12 MineCovians will be winning a significant prize!

    Now, naturally a contest of this nature has special rules and policies.

    This is for responsible players only. Anyone who is not a responsible player will be disqualified from all contests of this nature permanently. You are a responsible player if you:
    1. Remain a good sport in the event that you do not win
    2. Remain a good sport even if you do win
    3. Play fairly and responsibly*

    Where playing fairly is concerned, we will not allow any kind of cheating or exploiting. This includes but is not limited to any forms of automation. Please be authentic in your submissions. We will have a zero tolerance for this.
    As far as being responsible goes, you are not to behave in an unhealthy manner. This may sound odd. We understand that a $500 grand prize is substantial. Some of you may be inclined to miss school, work, or sleep over this. If we come to find that this is the case for you, you will be permanently disqualified from all contests of this nature.

    With all of that being said, we know some will not abide by these terms. We will end up having to disqualify some players. Some will be poor sports about losing, some may go as far as to cheat. Please do not be one of these people.

    Above all, have fun. The adults here can tell you, $500 might seem like a lot when you're young, but in this world it isn't more than a small shopping splurge.

    Good luck!
