The winner will be based on the highest points score achieved, and in case of a tie, the earliest time to reach those points will be the deciding factor.

Rewards for Points Accumulated: There will be a scoreboard where points will be assigned at the end of the competition based on the challenges that were completed. Each challenge will have an amount of points associated with it. Winners will be selected based on the greatest number of points earned. In case of a tie, the team with the earlier submission of the last flag will be the winner.

At the conclusion of the Event, CrowdStrike will select those Participants that have earned the 50 highest scores. On or about February 5, 2021, these potential winner(s) will be selected and notified by email. If a potential winner does not respond to the notification attempt within 3 days from the first notification attempt, then such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be selected from among all eligible entries received based on the judging criteria described herein up until 50 winners are reached or all Participants have been contacted. If no entries are received, no Prizes will be awarded. Determinations of the judges are final and binding.

Event Prize: Prizes may include a T-shirt, stickers, and/or other commemorative items (“Prize”). Prizes may be subject to change and subject to additional terms, restrictions and conditions imposed by CrowdStrike.
