Prizes and Fastcase Sponsorship

The year, the $5,000 Elect League Grand Prize is sponsored by Fastcase!  This prize will be awarded to the participant with the highest number of points.  The 1st Prize of $2,500 will be awarded to the participant with the highest number of points after the Grand Prize winner. The 2nd Prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the participant with the highest number of points after the 1st Prize winner. The 3rd Prize of $750 will be awarded to the participant with the highest number of points after the 2nd Prize winner. In the event of a tie for one of the Prizes, each of the participants with the tied score will receive an equally divided share of the total of all the prizes to which the tied participants would be entitled (e.g. If 2 participants tie for 2nd Prize, they will each receive half of the combined total of the 2nd and 3rd Prizes, or $1,750 divided by 2 = $875).
