Subway is running a story-writing contest, but it’s not open to homeschooled students. They are probably afraid that those in government schools would be at a disadvantage. And they probably would be.
Here’s the disclaimer:
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Contest is open only to legal residents of the Untied States who are currently over the age of 18 and have children who attend elementary, private or parochial schools that serve grades PreK-6. No home schools will be accepted.
The, um, “Untied States”? Screenshot here.
Subway should have hired a homeschool student to write their legal copy.
