Judging:

Nominations will be judged using the Nominator’s responses to the short answer questions listed in section 3 above. The judges/CFS reserve the right to choose winning FFA members based on their sole discretion. The Judge’s decisions are final and may not be contested or disputed.

Winners:

A minimum of five and a maximum of ten Nominees will be selected to become a Culver’s FFA Ambassador (each an “Ambassador”), subject to the following. If selected, each selected Nominee will be required to enter into an Ambassador Agreement with CFS and may be subject to further eligibility verifications and background checks by CFS. CFS reserves the right to approve or disapprove of any Nominee in its sole discretion. The Ambassador Agreement will require each Ambassador to participate in certain events and tasks as further described below, and agree to certain other terms and conditions consistent with brand endorsement agreements. If a selected Nominee is unwilling to agree to the terms of the Ambassador Agreement, the nominee will forfeit the opportunity to be an Ambassador. If CFS approves a selected Nomination and that Nominee signs the Ambassador Agreement to become a Culver’s FFA Ambassador, the FFA member will have the opportunity to earn up to $2,500 for their local FFA chapter by participating in three qualifying events/opportunities offered by Culver’s prior to January 31, 2025. Qualifying events include:

  1. Take a photo at their local Culver’s restaurant wearing FFA attire on Scoops of Thanks Day (May 2, 2024) featuring How Now Brown Cow Fresh Frozen Custard and share it on social, tagging Culver’s appropriate account for the platform.
  2. Visit their local Culver’s wearing FFA attire for a meet and greet lasting at least one (1) hour with guests.
  3. Partner with their local Culver’s to host an event benefiting the Thank You Farmers® Project.

  5. Participate in a survey about the Culver’s FFA Ambassador Program.

Any selected Nominee under the age of 18 (or the age of majority in that Nominee’s state) will also be required to obtain parental or guardian consent to become an Ambassador. Ambassadors will not receive any monetary compensation. Certain approved expenses, if any, incurred by an Ambassador as may be required by the Ambassador Agreement will be reimbursed by CFS.
