I’m Ready to Cast My Ballot!

Contest rules

Only one entry per person will be permitted, and only one prize will be awarded per household. Mailed entries from the same household must be mailed in individual envelopes. Employees of The Joplin Globe and their family members are not eligible to participate or win.

Entries may be dropped off at The Joplin Globe’s customer service desk at 117 E. Fourth St; mailed to “Oscar 2019 Contest” at P.O. Box 7, Joplin, MO 64802; or entered online at by end of the day on Friday, Feb. 22.

Entries that do not have complete name and address information will be voided. Entries with unmarked categories will be counted with the missing categories voided.

Winning entries will be selected from ballots marked with the most winners in the Academy Awards categories listed on the ballot. First place will win $150, second place will win $100 and third place will win $75.

Tie-breakers will be determined, if necessary, by how early a ballot is submitted. The collection box will be emptied daily; postmarks will determine the date of mailed entries and emails will be marked by when they appear on the Globe’s email server.

Winners must complete a W-9 form with the Globe’s business office in order to claim prizes.

A list of winners will be printed in a future issue of the Globe.
