Ensuring the Integrity of the Chevy Trailblazer Drawing Entries

Those individuals that qualify for the Chevy Trailblazer are automatically and systematically (not manually) entered into the drawing as their pledges are processed. Participating in public sector campaigns does provide individual donor information, which is audited, so public sector qualifiers can be assured they will be included and there is little room for human error. Companies, that do not typically provide individual pledge information, may submit a list of those employees who have qualified. Those names are added to the database of automatic qualifiers. Additionally, those people who submitted an entry outside of the automatic qualification process are also entered into the database. The final list of names is then scrambled by the computer so they are not in alphabetical order and each name is assigned a random number. A person not employed with Sponsor chooses a number from the total assigned field of numbers and the winner of the drawing is the person blindly assigned by the computer to that number.

Although the Sponsor cannot publish the list of all those who qualify if an Employee Campaign Coordinator requests a list of their company qualifiers, Sponsor can provide it prior to the drawing, but after all, pledges received by December 8, 2023, have been posted.
