NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING

The Nestlé Purina Careers Sweepstakes ("Sweepstakes") starts at 12:00 a.m. CT on February 29, 2016 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. CT on December 3, 2016 (the "Sweepstakes Period").

ELIGIBILITY: This Sweepstakes is only open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C., who are 18 years of age or older (19 years of age or older in AL and NE) who are enrolled (at the time of entry) as an undergraduate or graduate student at an accredited college or university in the United States, or who graduated from an accredited college or university in the United States within the 3 months prior to the time of entry. This Sweepstakes is not open to the general public. Employees of Nestlé Purina PetCare Company ("Sponsor"), its parent, subsidiary companies, affiliates, advertising and promotional agencies, and the independent judging organization, and the immediate family (spouse, parent, child, sibling and their respective spouses or "step" of each) and household members of such employees are not eligible. All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply to participation in the Sweepstakes. Void where prohibited by law.

HOW TO ENTER: Access the Nestlé Purina Careers website at nestlepurinacareers.com/sweepstakes (the "Website") during the Sweepstakes Period. To enter, complete the entry form by entering your first and last name, email address, college major, expected graduation date and the name of your college or university (optional) and indicate whether you are (or recently were) an undergraduate or graduate student and submit your entry before the end of the Sweepstakes Period. Limit one entry per person/e-mail address, excluding Referral Entries (see below).

You may share the Sweepstakes with your friends, who meet the eligibility requirements set forth above, via one of the several means of sharing offered on the Website. Each time someone who is eligible to enter uses the link in your post to access the Website and enters the Sweepstakes you will receive one additional entry (a "Referral Entry"). You may only share the Sweepstakes with people you know personally. You may not attempt to induce others to enter the Sweepstakes through the use of any incentive or promotion.

Any use of automatic methods of entry by any party will void all such entries and will result in the entries in question being declared ineligible and disqualified from the Sweepstakes. Any attempt by you and/or your friends to enter more than one time per person/e-mail address using "Bot" technology and/or any other fraudulent mechanism, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, shall give Sponsor the right to disqualify the entry in Sponsor's reasonable discretion.

Sponsor is not responsible for late or incomplete entries. Participation constitutes your full and unconditional agreement to these Official Sweepstakes Rules and Sponsor and Administrator's decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes.
