Can I participate in this contest ? Answered

My name is Shahrukh Saleem, I am from Pakistan. I wanted to participate in the soldering contest, but in Sec A rules of contest it is written that

"THE CONTEST IS OPEN ONLY TO NATURAL PERSONS WHO, AT THE TIME OF ENTRY, ARE REGISTERED MEMBERS OF THE SITE....
AND ARE LEGAL RESIDENTS OF THE 50 UNITED STATES (INCLUDING THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA BUT EXCLUDING PUERTO RICO), CANADA (EXCLUDING THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC, CANADA), UNITED KINGDOM, AUSTRALIA, BELGIUM, CHINA, THE NETHERLANDS, COLOMBIA, DENMARK, GERMANY, INDIA, NORWAY, NEW ZEALAND OR SWITZERLAND"

Why Pakistan is not listed here ?
it is also written that

a national or resident of Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, Syria or any other country for which trade with the United States has been prohibited or restricted by any statute, regulation, order, rule, treaty, or other law of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction in any manner that would prevent the awarding or delivery of any prize to the entrant;

US hasn't restricted trade with Pakistan. So Can I participate ?

This is not official Instructables advice.

You can participate in any contest, no matter where you live.

Your location is only an issue if you win.

If you have a friend or relative in a country where the contest is legal (the list you quote), then you can give their address for delivery of the parcel, and then they can send the prize on to you (at your own expense).
