Adults (18 and over): A weekly drawing will be held for a chance to win a prize. The more completed game boards turned in per week increases the odds in winning. Prizes vary, but may include t-shirts, water bottles, book lights, aprons, and/or adult coloring books.

Youth: Turning in your first completed game board awards you with a certificate of completion, a medal, and a Tails and Tales t-shirt. The first game board and each additional game board turned in will go into a drawing pool for a chance to win the grand prize.
