NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING.
CONTEST DESCRIPTION: Intelligentsia Coffee Inc. ("Intelligentsia") presents its single-origin coffee offerings -- coffees from a single source, not blended with coffees from other countries or even other regions within the same country -- under a system of marks it refers to as “Intelligentsia marks” or “I-marks.” Over the years, Intelligentsia has used twenty (20) different I-marks to identify single-origin coffees it has purchased across seventeen (17) different countries of origin. Intelligentsia is offering one twelve (12)-ounce bag of roasted, whole-bean, single-origin coffee to each of the first twenty-five (25) entrants who identifies all twenty (20) I-marks and correctly associates each one with the country to which it corresponds.
The Intelligentsia I-Mark Contest (the "Contest") begins on May 8, 2017 at 00:01 CST and ends May 30, 2017 at 23:59 CST (the "Submission Period"). By participating in the Contest, each entrant ("you") unconditionally accept and agree to comply with these Official Rules and Intelligentsia's decisions, which shall be final and binding in all respects.
ELIGIBILITY: You must be at least 18 years old at the time of entry and a U.S. resident. Intelligentsia officers, directors and employees are not eligible to enter the Contest or to win a prize. This Contest is void where prohibited and is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Instagram.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: At the end of the Submission Period, the first 25 entrants to post a correct entry (each, a "Winner" and collectively, the "Winners"), will be identified and offered the prize.
Intelligentsia will notify the potential winners by posting a comment to their Submissions. Intelligentsia is not responsible for communication problems of any kind and will not have any liability if any Winners' notification is lost, intercepted or not received. If a potential prize winner does not respond within seven (7) days of the first notification attempt, then the potential winner will forfeit his or her potential prize and Intelligentsia may select an alternate prize winner in accordance with the Winner Selection terms. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible or has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason, then such potential prize winner will be disqualified and the next qualifying Submission may be selected.
PRIZE: 25 Winners will each be offered one 12-ounce bag of Intelligentsia single-origin coffee of Intelligentsia’s choosing (est. value not to exceed $25).

ARBITRATION REQUIREMENT: By participating in this Contest, each entrant (and any minor entrant's parent or legal guardian) agrees: (a) that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Contest, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in Chicago, Illinois before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules, and judgment may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. This arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16. The arbitrator's decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of these Official Rules. There shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only entrant's and/or Intelligentsia's individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated. The arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against the entrant or Intelligentsia. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the provisions regarding class representation and/or consolidation of claims are found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and entrant shall not be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
