Many sweepstakes restrict entry to people who have reached the Age of Majority. In the United States, the age of majority is determined by each individual state, and can vary by several years. This table shows the breakdown of age of majority by state, so you can easily see which sweepstakes you can enter.
Note that some other factors can also influence the age of majority. For example, if a judge declares a minor emancipated, he or she usually receives majority at the same time. Many areas also give majority to minors who marry or who join the armed forces.
