The lottery will open on Nov. 28 and remain open for six (6) days, allowing patrons to enter their name into any number of our lottery programs.
The lottery will close at 11:59 p.m. Dec. 3 – except for Adaptive listings, which will close at 11:59 p.m. Dec. 17. At that time, the system will randomly select participants from those who have signed up for the lottery.
It is important to know that signing up for the lottery DOES NOT ensure a spot in the program or class.
Patrons who were selected will begin to receive email notifications Dec. 4 with a link leading them to register and pay for their spot. Both registration and payment must be completed by 11:59 p.m. Dec. 10, or the spot will be forfeited. Winning entries are nontransferable and must be used by the individual who originally entered the lottery.
Those who were not randomly selected will also receive an email notification. Any open spots that were not filled during the lottery timeline will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis on registration day, which begins at 9 a.m. Dec. 12.
A complete listing of the lottery programs is below and can be found online starting Nov. 28.
