Basic Contest Rules
Basic Contest Rules ;
The following are basic contest rules applying to any and all contests that run on Radio Tri-Cities radio stations. Each contest may have its own special qualifications and eligibility rules, in which case, a separate list of rules will be available for public inspection.
I. All Radio Tri-Cities contests are open to all listeners, unless a specific age is required and specified by an advertiser, agency or by Radio Tri-Cities Group. Full and part-time employees, and their families, of Radio Tri-Cities, its representatives, its agencies or employees of any other AM, FM or television broadcast station serving the Tri-Cities Market and persons, and their families, who have been employed by Radio Tri-Cities the (60) day period immediately preceding the effective date of the contest are ineligible to enter or participate in any and all Radio Tri-Cities contests.
II. No purchase is necessary and the contest is void where prohibited by law.
III. Winners are not eligible to participate in any Radio Tri-Cities contests for a period of thirty (30) days from the original date of qualifying or winning a contest and or prize conducted by Radio Tri-Cities.
IV. All prizes, unless otherwise specified by Radio Tri-Cities, must be picked up within thirty (30) days from the date won, between the hours of 9AM and 5PM during regular office business hours at the Radio Tri-Cities offices. Holidays are included in the thirty (30) day pick-up period. Winners will be required to present their valid government issued photo identification to claim prize. It is the responsibility of the winner, unless otherwise specified by Radio Tri-Cities, to claim their prize within the time limit. Prizes specified to be picked-up must be claimed in person and signed for by the winner. Designated winner’s representatives will be allowed to claim prizes only if Radio Tri-Cities is informed in writing and by phone that such a representative will be picking up their prize and that they have been given the power of attorney to sign a prize release for the winner and or approved by a representative of Radio Tri-Cities.
V. If a winner is under 18 years of age, Radio Tri-Cities requires that their parent or legal guardian accompany said winner when claiming prize. Additionally, parent or legal guardian must present valid photo identification and a social security card and must sign the Radio Tri-Cities prize release form to claim prize.
VI. All prizes not claimed within the thirty (30) day period will become the property of Radio Tri-Cities. Radio Tri-Cities may at its discretion, award the prize to another listener, either in the same contest, or at a later date and separate contest. Every attempt will be made to award all major contest prizes, whether claimed by the original winner or not.
VII. In case of dispute over telephone line malfunctions, the decision of Radio Tri-Cities will be final. In the event that 2 or more phone lines are “tied together” during a phone-in contest, the entire call will be disqualified, and another call will be taken. Radio Tri-Cities cannot award duplicate prizes to both parties in a “tied-together” situation, which is a circumstance beyond the control of the station.
