NEW RULES AND TWISTS FOR 2016:

Last year, many guessed their answers by sitting home and searching the internet. That can still be done, However, to encourage participants to visit Roselle Park businesses, this year as an added bonus additional points can be earned towards your totally doing one of the following. 

One extra point - Take a photo of you in front of the business. Make sure that the business can be clearly identified.

Two extra points - Take a photo of you with the owner, manager or worker of the business you are guessing. Let them know its for Shop Small Roselle Park! Make sure that the business can be clearly identified.

Three extra points - Take a quick video of you and the business you are guessing. To earn the three points, say the phrase - "SHOP SMALL ROSELLE PARK" Make sure that the business can be clearly identified.

The extra points can be earned for each guess. But, each guess can only earn one type of extra point. For example, you cannot take a photo and video and add the two together to earn extra points. Send photos and videos along with your guesses to ShopSmallRosellePark@gmail.com. You can also send them via Facebook messenger, but it is highly advised to send them by email. 

You can send one email with your guesses and photo/video by 5 p.m. However, if you need to send multiple emails for your photos/videos, after sending your emailed guesses, you will have 15 minutes to send your photos and/or videos.

Therefore, if you send your guesses at 5 p.m., you will have up to 5:15 p.m. to submit your photos/videos. 

Do not send photos before your guesses. And do not send your photos/videos throughout the day. You must send your guesses first, then the clock starts ticking to send your photos/videos.

Photos and videos can only be those taken on Saturday November 26. Photos and videos from other dates will disqualify you from bonus points. No photo shopping. Real photos only.
