No purchase is necessary. Void where prohibited. All federal, state, and local regulations apply.
Eligibility. Unless otherwise specified, all Contests and Sweepstakes are open only to legal U.S. residents age eighteen (18) years or older at the time of entry with a valid Social Security number and who reside in the WKAC radio station’s listening area. Void where prohibited by law. Individuals age 13 to 17 may be eligible to participate in Contests and Sweepstakes with the approval of a parent or legal guardian, provided that the parent or legal guardian is a legal U.S. resident at least 18 years of age at the time of entry with a valid Social Security number and resides in the WKAC radio station’s listening area. Unless otherwise specified, employees of WKAC, affiliates, related entities and subsidiaries, promotional sponsors, prize providers, advertising agencies, other radio stations serving the WKAC radio station’s listening area, and the immediate family members and household members of all such employees are not eligible to participate. The term “immediate family members” includes spouses, parents and step-parents, siblings and step-siblings, and children and stepchildren. The term “household members” refers to people who share the same residence at least three (3) months out of the year. An individual may win a Contest or Sweepstakes only once per thrity (30) day period unless otherwise specifically stated. Contests and Sweepstakes are subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest or Sweepstake. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.
Contest or Sweepstakes Period. The Contest or Sweepstake will begin and end at no uncertain time(s).
How to Enter. Entry methods for Contest and Sweepstakes will be specified and entries must be received during the Contest or Sweepstakes Period to be eligible. WKAC or it's sponsors shall not be responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, inappropriate or misdirected entries, all of which will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the email address or telephone number used to enter will be deemed to be the participant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned the telephone number by the wireless carrier or an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. All entries become the sole and exclusive property of WKAC and will not be returned. WKAC and/or it's sponsors reserves the right to contact entrants and all other individuals whose email address is submitted as part of a Contest or Sweepstakes. Time Delay Between Over-the-Air Analog Signal and Other Signal Delivery: Due to the time delay that exists between a WKAC radio station’s analog over-the-air signal and its online webcast, listeners who listen to WKAC radio station online may hear Contest or Sweepstakes information or a cue to call later than listeners listening to the station’s analog over-the-air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener winning a Contest Sweepstakes may be diminished
Winner Selection. Contest and Sweepstakes winners will be determined according to the method specified by WKAC and said contest and at it's sole and exclusive discretion. The winning entrant will be contacted using the email address, or USPS and/or telephone number provided with the entry and may be awarded the prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these rules or the specific Contest or Sweepstakes rules). WKAC’s decisions as to the administration and operation of Contests and Sweepstakes and the selection of potential winners is final and binding in all matters related to the Contest or Sweepstakes.
Verification of Potential Winner. POTENTIAL CONTEST AND SWEEPSTAKES WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY WKAC WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE CONTEST OR SWEEPSTAKES. The potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and/or the Office Rules of the specific Contest or Sweepstakes, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. The potential winner will be notified by email and/or telephone call or by mail, after the date of winning the contest. The potential winner may be required to sign the eligibility and a liability/publicity release, or other type of form or receipt (except where prohibited) in order to claim his/her prize, if applicable.

No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded.
