    5. Contest Period: The Contest will be run monthly until further notice. See below for “Awarding of Prize”.
    6. Contest Entry: Participants can fill out a ballot by attending any free Information Session held in Canada. By entering the contest you incur no obligation to make a purchase, pay money, or submit to a sales promotion effort.  To enter without attending an Information Session, mail an entry to Oxford Seminars. The entry must be hand printed with the entrant’s name, address, email address, postal code, and phone number on a plain 3”x 5” piece of paper on which the entrant has signed. Place the entry form in an envelope and mail it with sufficient postage to: Oxford Seminars Win a Free Course, 131 Bloor Street West, Suite 200-390, Toronto ON M5S 1R8. Mail-in entries must be postmarked no later than the 10th of the month for which the entry applies. All mail-in entries will bear the same odds as entries completed at Information Sessions.
