Void where prohibited.  Employees of Simmons Bedding Company, LLC ("Sponsor"), its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates and advertising and promotion agencies, and members of their immediate family (spouse and parent, children and siblings and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and persons living in the same household, whether or not related, of such employees, are not eligible to enter or win. Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws. By participating, each entrant agrees to abide by these official rules (“Official Rules”) and decisions of Sponsor and judges, which shall be final and binding in all respects relating to this Contest.

HOW TO ENTER:  During the Contest Period, to enter, visit www.beautyrest.com/song-titles-with-sleep and follow the directions to complete and submit the entry form, including your original song title that includes “sleep” (or a variation including, but not limited to “asleep,” “slept,” “sleeping”) or “Beautyrest” or both ("Entry"). There is no limit on the number of Entries you can submit; however, each Entry must be substantially different than any other Entry you submit.  In the event two (2) entrants submit the exact same Entry, only the Entry that was submitted first, as determined by Sponsor, will be considered.  Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means or by any means which subvert the entry process are void.  All Entries become the sole property of the Sponsor and will not be returned.

Entry must be entrant’s own work product, may not have been previously published by entrant, may not have won previous awards, and must not infringe upon the copyrights, trademarks, rights of privacy, publicity or other intellectual property or other rights of any person or entity.  If an Entry contains any material or elements that are not owned by the entrant, and/or which are subject to the rights of third parties, the entrant is responsible for obtaining, prior to submission of the Entry, any and all releases, permissions and consents necessary to permit the use and exhibition of the Entry by Sponsor in the manner set forth in these Official Rules. Sponsor reserves the right to request proof of these permissions in a form acceptable to Sponsor from any entrant at any time. Failure to provide such proof may, if requested, render Entry null and void. 

By submitting an Entry, entrant represents and warrants that the Entry is his/her own original work product and that the Entry conforms to these Official Rules and understands that Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may disqualify the Entry for any reason, including if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Entry fails to conform to these Official Rules in any way or otherwise contains unacceptable content as determined by Sponsor, in its sole discretion.
