      Hi MacKenzie – I think you should probably e-mail them to find out the details, as I just try and gather all of the contests I can find and post them here. I post the websites and if I can find them, the e-mails too so people can ask any other questions to the people in charge. Thanks so much for asking this good question and for your interest! Liz
