International Games Month Crossword Competition 2023


This is a free-to-enter competition that starts on Monday, 6 November 2023 at 9:30am and closes on Thursday, 30 November 2023 at 5pm. To enter, participants must be a member of East Riding Libraries. There is no age limit on this competition. There will be one entry category. The International Games Month crossword must be completed correctly to be entered into the prize draw. Participants may only enter the competition once. Winners will be selected randomly electronically. The winner of the competition will win a goody bag at the discretion of East Riding Libraries. Winners will be contacted directly by East Riding Libraries staff. If chosen as winner, your name will be featured in our marketing campaigns and displayed in your local East Riding Libraries branch. Winners will be contacted by 5pm on Wednesday, 6 December 2023. All entrants must have parental consent to enter this competition.

How will the winners be chosen?

Each East Riding Libraries branch will select one entry per library using a random number generator. These names of entries will then be collated and a random winner from these names will be selected by East Riding Libraries staff using a random name selector. Our East Riding Library staff will then contact them to organise collection of their prize. If we do not get a reply from you after contacting 3 times, then we will select another winner. If the prize is not collected within one month after being notified about winning, we will select another winner.
