In consideration for their time, expertise and other resources, each Applicant hereby voluntarily releases the Challenge, each Challenge Official, each Organizer Representative, and the CSU from any liabilities and claims of any kind whatsoever, whether known or unknown, which arise out of or pertain to the Applicant's participation in the Challenge or the Challenge Official's or Organizer Representative's participation in the Challenge.
