  1. The weight loss part of the contest will begin on Monday, February 7, 2022 and end on May 28, 2022. Those who lose at least 5% of their starting weight will be eligible to participate in the weight maintenance contest, which will begin immediately at the end of the 16 weeks.
  2. Participants must live in Greene County and be over the age of 18. In order to enter the contest, you must be a member of a participating worksite or organization, or go to one of the weigh-in locations identified by the Greene County Rural Health Network.
  3. Each participating worksite must have an onsite coordinator who will conduct and record weigh-ins.
  4. Similar clothing should be worn at initial and final weigh-ins to get the most accurate data.
  5. Participants can join the contest anytime in the first 2 weeks, but weights will not be adjusted and duration of contest will not be extended.
  6. Two categories of winners will be chosen based on percentage of weight lost and total pounds lost.
  7. At no time will the weight of an individual be announced or posted. All weights are considered strictly confidential (unless permission granted by contestant).
  8. This contest is meant to encourage adoption of a healthier diet and/or exercise plan. Use of prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, and/or medical procedures is prohibited.
  9. Coordinators will report weights to Event Director on a timely basis (to be determined as contest progresses) in order to be eligible to win prizes.
  10. Individual participating worksites/weigh-in locations are allowed to create incentives for their own participants (i.e., weekly pool, healthy lunch, etc). This is separate and distinct from the overall contest.
  11. Any winning over $600 must be reported to the IRS.
  12. Last, but not least….have fun!
