Participation in the Promotion does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. By participating in the Promotion, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Time Warner Cable Inc., 60 Columbus Circle, New York, NY 10023 (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects.

Employees, officers and directors of Time Warner Cable Inc., its subsidiaries, and affiliated companies, advertising, promotion, or production agencies, and web masters/suppliers (collectively, the “Promotion Entities”) and the immediate family members, and/or those living in the same household of each, are ineligible to enter the Promotion or win a prize. Promotion is void where prohibited.

  3. HOW IT WORKS: To participate, you must be a registered user of Twitter and a follower of @ConnectMinds. Registration is free and available at www.Twitter.com. During the Promotion Period, go to http://connectamillionminds.com/pledge and take the pledge, then send a Tweet to @ConnectMinds describing how you plan on fulfilling your pledge including the hashtag #pledgeandtweet. The first one hundred (100) persons to complete these two (2) steps will receive a CAMM Prize Pack (the “Prize Pack”). Additionally, out of those one hundred (100), representatives of Sponsor will conduct a random drawing to select one (1) Grand Prize winner.

The selected winners will be required to respond (as directed) to the notification within twenty-four (24) hours (or a shorter time if required by exigencies) of attempted notification. The failure to respond timely to the notification may result in forfeiture of the prize. Sponsor reserves the right to award fewer than one hundred (100) Prize Packs should fewer than one hundred (100) eligible people complete the above steps.

If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner may be disqualified and an alternate prize winner may be selected. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Promotion or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Promotion.
