The printable certificates of achievement go to the top ten students in a contest.
Students are ranked by the number of correct answers. If students have the same number of correct answers, then they are ranked by their average answering speed.
To qualify for a participation reward, a student must answer 100 questions in the contest.
The overall winner is the class with the highest average number of correct answers per student.
The daily winner is the class with the highest average number of correct answers per student on that day. For each contest, a class can only be a daily winner once.
To qualify for a class prize, at least 5 students from your class must play a Sumdog game during the period for which the prize is awarded.
Terms and conditions
All prizes are awarded at the discretion of Sumdog and must be claimed as above.

Sumdog free games continue to be available after the contests finish.
