School Spirit ChallengeNow - April 30, 2019 at variable times.
Who: Atlantic County public elementary and middle schools (kindergarten through 8th grade)
How It Works: Shoppers are required to bring their original, itemized receipts from any Hamilton Mall store, experience/service, or restaurant to Customer Service informing them of the school they wish to support within 48 hours of original purchase. Shoppers are only allowed to turn in their own receipts (max two receipts from the same location per shopper per day). Customer Service will tally the receipts and attribute the points respectively, one point for every dollar spent (i.e. $1 = 1 point).
Double Points Category: Each month will have a specific category (retail, experiences and services, or restaurants and food court) designated to receive two points for each dollar spent (i.e. $1 = 2 points).
Retail – September, December, March
Experiences & Services – October, January, April
Restaurants & Food Court – November, February
Prizes: At the end of the campaign, all points are tallied to determine the top three schools. First place receives a $5,000 monetary donation; second place will receive $2,500; and third place receives $1,500.
Wildcard: One school will be selected as the Wildcard if they showed participation throughout the entire campaign by turning in at least five receipts per month September through April. The Wildcard school will be randomly selected from all schools meeting this criterion (excluding the top three schools) and receive a $1,000 monetary donation.
Disqualification: If three or more students and/or employees of a school is arrested at Hamilton Mall during the current school year, that school will be disqualified from the campaign.
