Winners were selected as such:
Grand Prize and Runners Up: All passports with all 27 stores' stamps were put in a huge tub. The grand prize winner was drawn by the store owner who housed the bedazzled gumball machine. The runners up were drawn from the same tub by the store owners who had the top three highest number of hoppers.
Regional Winners: All submitted passports are in the tub. Each regional director drew passports until she had a passport that indicated her specific region was complete. Each unqualified passport was returned to the tub to be eligible for the next region's drawing.
Store Basket Winners: All submitted passports are in the tub. Each store owner drew passports until a passport with her/his store's stamp was on the passport, meaning that the winner had visited said store. Each unqualified passport was returned to the tub to be eligible for the next store's basket.
