Application School Selection Process – First Round:
Once Saint-Gobain receives your application, Saint-Gobain will narrow down the applications based on the Applicant School's answers and Saint-Gobain's internal Guidelines. Please note, that submission of an Application does not guarantee selection – Applications only facilitate the selection. Saint-Gobain will use its internal guidelines in selecting candidates and Saint-Gobain's selection of candidates will be final.
Applicant School selection depends on the answers provided in the Application Forms, the Projects and/or Programs, and the compatibility of the Donated Materials to such Projects. However, answers do not guarantee selection- they only facilitate the selection. One of the preconditions to qualify for donations of Materials is that the Applicant School, should have a project that is underway, confirmed, and scheduled to be completed no later than August 25, 2023, or if applying for Materials the Applicant School must provide a list of requested Materials that directly support the Program, in as much detail as possible, including but not limited to type, brand, vendors and website.

Applicant School Selection Process – Second Round:
Once Saint-Gobain narrows down the Applicant Schools from the First Round, Saint-Gobain will put the selected Application to vote among Saint-Gobain employees and the public. Saint-Gobain will announce the voting rules at the appropriate times. Three or less Applicant Schools will be selected based on the votes received.
We will pick up to three (3) winners, the winner will get up to $50,000, the first runner up will get up to $20,000 and the second runners up will get up to $10,000 but the ultimate amount of Material Donated will be at Saint-Gobain's sole discretion based on the number of applications, votes and internal guidelines. Although Saint-Gobain will try to deliver the Donated Materials to winning Applicant Schools in a timely manner, current conditions including raw material shortage, labor shortage and transportation issues may cause delays beyond Saint-Gobain's contract and by submitting the application you agree that Saint-Gobain shall not be responsible for such delays and waive any claims against Saint-Gobain. Materials acceptance must be confirmed by the winning recipient within 3 business days of initial notification. If the winning Applicant School does not claim their prize by this deadline, no alternate winner will be chosen.
