#BinItYourWay Challenge 2020

27th October 2020

The video with the most likes by 4pm on 30th November will be crowned the winner!

How will your school Bin It this Autumn?
On 2 November we are launching an exciting competition – the Bin It Your Way challenge for primary and secondary schools throughout the UK. Although our award-winning theatrical roadshow has had to be postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions, we haven’t let this stop us!

Over the past 15 years we have reached nearly 250,000 students with anti-littering messages. To celebrate and get us to that quarter of a million figure we are running a competition to get students engaged and help tackle the impact of littering on our environment.

Read on to learn how you can take part and be in with a chance of winning £500 worth of sports equipment for your school!

The Bin It Your Way challenge
We’ve teamed up with the England Women’s football team,the Lionesses, to inspire and encourage anti-littering behaviour among young people and tackle the litter epidemic through a social media challenge.

Join the Lionesses by taking part in the Bin It Your Way challenge on Twitter this autumn. We want you to film your most creative, funny, skilful or innovative ways to bin your rubbish! Get inspired by the Lioness players and watch them perform trick shots to Bin It their way on our Twitter account @BinItEducation.

Post your video on Twitter and if your video gets the most likes, you could win £500 worth of sports equipment for your school.

How to get involved
We’ve created six simple steps to enter the challenge.
1: Think of your trick shot – how will you Bin It Your Way
2: Practice
3: Film it
4: Share it on your school Twitter channel and tag @BinItEducation and #BinItYourWay
5: Ask all your friends, parents, teachers and followers to like your video
6: Cross your fingers and hope to win

It’s the journey to the bin that will make you stand out and be in with a chance to win our amazing prize. Students can dance, kick, slam dunk or freestyle their litter into the bin. The video could include just one student, a class, a year group, a whole school or a family as long as it is safe to do so.

Once the video has been filmed and edited (if you’d like to add some post-production magic) upload it to your school Twitter account. Your post must include the hashtag #BinItYourWay and mention @BinItEducation in order to be included. We have created some example tweets below to help share your Bin It Your Way video and get the likes coming in thick and fast.

To keep things fair, here are some basic rules to follow when making your entry:
– Keep your video short, we find less than 30 seconds works well.
– Make sure the videos are posted from your school’s Twitter account so we know which school you are from. While you’re there, follow us @BinitEducation.
– Videos can be posted from 2 November to 29 November 2020.
– The Bin It core messaging is aimed at 11-13-year-old students but we’re open to all ages taking part in the challenge.
– Please ensure that you have the permission of all parents/guardians whose children feature in the video before posting the video.
– You can submit as many entries per school as you like but there can only be one winner!
– You must include the hashtag #BinItYourWay to make your entry count.
– The winner will be the eligible entry with the most likes by 4pm on 30 November.

Full terms and conditions can be found below, please do have a read before submitting your entry.

Who can take part?
Students, teachers, family, friends and pets are all welcome to take part in the video, the filming or the editing. We encourage you all to take part but please do it safely, taking into account social distancing and COVID restrictions for your school and local area.

Youth clubs can also participate; however, they cannot win. Any youth club entry must also nominate the local school they would like to win the prize, if their video wins, by mentioning the school’s full name and tagging the school’s official Twitter account.

Full Terms and Conditions

Wrigley Litter Competition
1.
The Promoter: Mars Wrigley Confectionery UK Limited, 3D Dundee Road, Slough, Berkshire, SL1 4LG.
2. Eligibility: This promotion is open to UK-based primary or secondary schools or youth clubs. Entries can only be submitted from an official school or youth club Twitter account. Videos uploaded by individuals or on any other social media channel will not be considered for entry. Only a primary or secondary school can win the prize so any youth club entering should nominate a local school to receive the prize if their entry wins. Nominations should be made by tagging that primary/secondary school in their post.
3. Promotional Period: Entry videos can be posted from 09:00:00 on 02/11/2020 until 23:59:59 on 29/11/2020.
4. Entry Instructions: To enter, a school teacher or adult youth club worker should create a video showing a group of people from a primary or secondary school or youth club disposing of litter into a bin in a creative and appropriate way. The video should then be posted during the Promotional Period on the school or youth club’s official Twitter account including reference to #BinItYourWay in the post and tagging @BinItEducation. Students or youth club members should be featured in the video. Any youth club entry must also nominate the local primary or secondary school they would like to win the prize, if their video wins – by mentioning the school’s full name and tagging the school’s official Twitter account. It is the responsibility of the school or youth club to ensure that it has the permission of all parents/guardians whose children feature in the video before posting the video to enter.
5. Selection Process:  The winning entry will be the video that has the most likes for it by 16:00:00 on 30/11/20. Only likes for the original post will be counted. In the event that the school or youth club reposts their entry, any likes for the reposted video will not count. The primary or secondary school associated with the winning video with the most likes on 30/11/20 will be notified via direct message in their Twitter account and asked to DM @BinItEducation or email litter.wrigley@lexcomm.co.uk within 5 days of notification as winner, providing details of that school’s preferred sports equipment supplier, who will receive £500 to be credited to the winning school’s account. In the event that the Promoter has not received the winning school’s preferred sports equipment supplier details within 5 days of notification, the Promoter reserves the right to award the prize to the primary or secondary school with the second highest number of likes, with the originally selected winner forfeiting their right to their prize.
6. There is no limit on the number of entries a school or youth club can post, provided each entry features a different video showing a new creative and appropriate way to dispose of litter.
7. Bulk entries, entries submitted via agents, third parties, organised groups or those automatically generated by computer will not be accepted.  An entry video submitted by an individual will not be valid for entry and will not win, even if it receives the most likes.
8. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the Promoter and its agents assume no responsibility and are not liable for any school, youth club or individual whose social media account details are used to submit an entry without their permission. The account owner is accepted as the entrant and should a video posted from their account receive the most likes, they will be the sole claimant of the prize, even if they did not post the original entry (unless the account owner is an individual, in which case the entry will be disqualified).
9. The Prizes: There is one prize of £500 worth of sports equipment to be won. The winning primary or secondary school (being either responsible for posting the video themselves or nominated to receive the prize by the winning youth club) will be required to provide details of their preferred sports equipment supplier. The Promoter will then contact that supplier and transfer funds to the value of £500, to be credited to the school’s account with the supplier.
10. Prize Redemption: The winning school will be notified via direct message to their Twitter account which they posted the entry onto or were tagged by a youth club and asked to DM @BinItEducation or email litter.wrigley@lexcomm.co.uk and provide details of the preferred sports equipment supplier to which the £500 prize will be credited to their account. The winning school will be asked to confirm details of the teacher or youth club worker who posted the winning video. The £500 will be credited to the winning school’s account with their preferred sports equipment supplier within 28 days of providing details. The winning school will be notified once the prize has been paid, to allow them to contact the supplier and order equipment against the credit in their account.
11. The prize is as stated, is not for exchange or resale and no cash or other prize alternative is available. The Promoter reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to award an alternative prize of equal or greater value, should the advertised prize (or any element of it) become unavailable for any reason.
12. General: The Promoter is not responsible for any entries which fail to be registered, are delayed for any technical or other reason whatsoever or which do not tag @BinItEducation, use #BinItYourWay, or fail to tag a school (for youth club entries).
13. The winning primary/secondary school’s details (including preferred sports equipment supplier account details) will be retained for 30 days after the conclusion of the promotion to allow the Promoter to arrange for payment to be credited to the school’s account and to deal with any queries. The winning school can request for their contact details to be deleted before the expiry of this period by writing to Wrigley Litter Competition Winner Details Deletion, c/o David Henderson, Mars Wrigley Confectionery UK Ltd, 3D Dundee Road, Slough SL1 4LG, although the Promoter cannot be held responsible if such request means that it is unable to complete payment of £500 to the school’s account with the sports equipment supplier.
14. Except where the winner has requested that their details are not shared, the prize winning school’s details (primary/secondary school name and county) will be announced on the @BinItEducation account and also made available for a period of 30 days by sending a stamped addressed envelope to Wrigley Litter Competition Winner c/o David Henderson, Mars Wrigley Confectionery UK Ltd, 3D Dundee Road, Slough SL1 4LG, between 05.12.2020 – 03.01.2021.
15. The prize-winning school may be asked to take part in reasonable publicity in connection with the promotion with no recompense, during the 30-day period referenced in Condition 13 when their contact details will be held, except where they have requested for their details not to be publicised.
16. The Promoter reserves the right to verify all entries including but not limited to asking for confirmation from the winning primary/secondary school or youth club that permission was obtained from all parents of children featured in the video, and to refuse to award the prize or withdraw the prize entitlement and disqualify the entrant where there are reasonable grounds to believe there has been a breach of these terms and conditions or any instructions forming part of the entry requirements or otherwise where a participant has gained unfair advantage in participating in the promotion or won using fraudulent means (including by manipulating the number of likes for the winning video).
17. The Promoter is not responsible in the event that the winning school fails to receive their prize as a result of having provided inaccurate or incorrect preferred sports equipment supplier account details.
18. In the event of circumstances outside the reasonable control of the Promoter, or otherwise where fraud, abuse, and/or an error (human or computer) affects or could affect the proper operation of this promotion, the Promoter reserves the right to suspend the promotion or amend these terms and conditions, at any stage, with no liability to any entrants or third parties, but will always endeavour to minimise the effect to participants in order to avoid undue disappointment.
19. By posting a video, an entrant accepts the terms and conditions of Twitter. However, it is acknowledged that this promotion is not sponsored or endorsed by, nor associated with, Twitter and entrants release Twitter from any and all liability arising out of or in connection with their entry.
20. This promotion and these terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and the parties to any dispute or action shall submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
21. Entry into the promotion shall constitute a primary or secondary school’s/youth club’s acceptance of these terms and conditions and their agreement to be bound by them.
22. Any personal details provided by unsuccessful entrants when participating in the promotion will be used for administrative purposes only and will be deleted once the prize money has been transferred to the winning school’s account with the sports equipment supplier. The winning school’s details will be held and subsequently deleted in accordance with Condition 13.
