You will be required to provide your full name, mailing address, valid telephone number and valid e-mail address to opt into the Prettie Dreamers Club and receive correspondence. If you are a minor (under the age of 13, you must have permission from your parent or guardian) Once you’ve subscribed, you will be considered one of our Prettie Dreamers. Only one entry is permitted per person in the Prettie Girls Key to Your Dreams Contest.

The sweepstakes is only open to legal residents of the forty-eight (48) contiguous United States and is void where prohibited by law.
  2. THE CONTEST PROCESS: First select which one of the PRETTIE attributes that best describes you, then, in an essay of 100 words or less tell us how it makes you Prettie. All essays will be reviewed by the One World Doll Project Prettie Girls! Design Team; then 5 essays will be selected and posted on on the 25th day of the month for online visitors to vote on. Photos of the 3 finalist will be requested and the winning essay will be announced on the first business day of the following month,accompanied by the submitted photo. The winning essay will be announced on the first business day of the following month. The winning entrant will be notified via email and by phone. In the event that The One World Doll Project is not able to contact a winner within five (5) days of the issuance of the date and time stamped email, the writer of the second most popular essay will be notified that they can claim the prize, and their winning essay and submitted photo will be posted. If you provided a false e-mail address and the winning entry is returned as non-deliverable, the selected entry will be deemed to be null and void along with any rights to the prize. Before being declared a winner, the selected entrant must first be confirmed as to eligibility and provide information that matches the original entry form.
  3.  PRIZES: Prizes cannot be refunded or converted to cash. Prizes not claimed will be forfeited. The One World Doll Project will pay shipping fees & sales tax.
  4.  GRAND PRIZE WINNERIn an effort to give everyone an equal opportunity to win one Grand Prize per year, The Prettie Girls Key To Your Dreams Contest Rules state that Prettie Dreamers can win one Grand Prize per year only. This means that if you have entered the contest and have won a Grand Prize already, you are no longer eligible to win a second Grand Prize. There are only 12 Grand Prizes, within a year, and it is only fair to all Prettie Dreamers that there be a different Grand Prize Winner each month. At the beginning of a new year, all Prettie Dreamers subscribers will reset and each Prettie Dreamer has the opportunity again to win one Grand Prize in the new year!
  5.  All prizes are subject to availability by the supplier. To claim prizes, winners must contact the office of The One World Doll Project and follow instructions provided in the Winners notification date and time stamped e-mail. Contest Prize winners must respond to the notification e-mail within a specific time that will be clearly explained in your correspondence.
