Important: Please read these terms and conditions before nominating a team (defined below) to receive a Grant (defined below).

By submitting a Grant application, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions  and represent that your Team satisfies all of the eligibility requirements below.

  1. Eligibility. NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO ENTER. YOU MAY ONLY NOMINATE A TEAM THAT IS A HIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD AND/OR CROSS COUNTRY TEAM AS OF THE START DATE OF THE NOMINATION PERIOD AND THAT IS A LEGAL RESIDENT OF ONE OF THE FIFTY (50) UNITED STATES OR DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA OR CANADA. IF THE TEAM YOU NOMINATE DOES NOT MEET ANY OF THESE REQUIREMENTS, OR ANY OTHER ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, THEN THE TEAM IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A GRANT, AND BROOKS SPORTS, INC. ("Brooks" or “Sponsor”) RESERVES THE RIGHT NOT TO GIVE GRANTS TO THAT TEAM. Nominations (defined below) must be completed and received by Brooks in the manner and format designated below in order to be judged. Directors, officers and employees of Brooks and its respective affiliate companies, subsidiaries, agents, professional advisors, advertising and promotional agencies, and immediate families of each are not eligible to receive any grants, or to Nominate Teams. All applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations apply. A Team can be Nominated by multiple individuals (as long as they are a coach or athletic director), but an individual may only Nominate a particular Team one time. Additional Nominations from one individual (including from different email addresses belonging to one individual) for one Team will be disregarded. Nominated Teams not chosen for a particular Selection Date, defined below, shall automatically be eligible for the next Selection Date unless disqualified pursuant to these Terms and Conditions.
  2. Disclaimer. Brooks and its parent company, subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, professional advisors, employees and agencies (collectively, the "Released Parties") will not be responsible for: (a) any late, lost, misrouted, garbled or distorted or damaged transmissions or entries; (b) telephone, electronic, hardware, software, network, Internet, or other computer- or communications-related malfunctions or failures; (c) any Grant disruptions, injuries, losses or damages caused by events beyond the control of Brooks or by non-authorized human intervention; or (d) any printing or typographical errors in any materials associated with the Grant.
  3. Nomination Period. You may submit Nominations for the Fall 2023 school year between 9:00amPT on Tuesday, August 1, 2023 and 11:59pmPT on Monday, August 21, 2023 (the “Nomination Period”). Nominations must be received by the end of the Nomination Period for the Team to be eligible to receive a Grant.
  4. Grants. Throughout the year, sixty (60) total Grant recipients will each receive the following package (each, a “Grant”): up to $17,000 MSRP in Brooks merchandise for each gift recipient's current high school team (ARV: $18,000); and $1,000 cash for additional team needs (ARV: $1,000). All merchandise and cash will be donated directly to the high school (or its designee). Cash may only be used for legitimate purchases for the track and field and/or cross country program. Total ARV of each Grant: $18,000. Total ARV of all Grants available: $1,080,000.
  5. Odds; Taxes; Etc.Odds of receiving a Grant depend on the number of eligible Teams and the quality of Nominations received . All Grants will be given, except that if there are not enough Nominations for sixty (60) recipients, then the number of recipients will be reduced to the actual number of Nominations received. If a notification of a Grant is returned as undeliverable or a gift is otherwise not claimed within fifteen (15) business days after delivery of notification, the applicable Grant will be forfeited and awarded to the Team that received the next highest score that puts the Team into the top sixty (60) after the forfeiting recipient is disqualified. Grants are not transferable. No substitutions or exchanges (including for cash) of any gifts will be permitted, except that Brooks reserves the right to substitute a package of comparable or greater value for any Grant. Limit one Grant per Team per Nomination Period. All Grants are awarded "AS IS" and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose).
