  1. Participants must sign all contest release and waiver forms required by participating station before accepting prize.  Entrants are required to provide truthful information in all Promotion submissions and when requested by the Station in connection with this Promotion.  The Station reserves the right to reject or delete any entry that it discovers to be false or fraudulent.  The Station reserves the right to disqualify any entry from any individual who does not meet the eligibility requirements or whom it discovers has provided false or fraudulent information. The Station will delete any and all entries as may be required by law.




  1. Entry Method:


Participants who wish to participate in the Contest must do so by texting the on-air keyword to 508-777-1000. In order to participate, a Participant must submit the required personal information and the Station’s on air “keyword” by 11:59 PM local time, the same day that the keywords are provided.  Some participating radio stations will be accepting entries via entry forms on their stations’ websites, where participants would enter keywords the same day they are provided by 11:59 PM local time. Four different keywords will be announced on air on the Station at random points throughout the day.  Participants may utilize each keyword to submit four entries into the contest each day.  Each Participant may only submit four entries per day, and each of the four entries must utilize a different keyword.  The Station reserves the right to delete, reject, remove, or otherwise not consider any submissions which contain a duplicate keyword. 


When providing the keyword on air, the Station will spell the keyword.  Participants must submit the keyword as it was spelled on air, and only the keyword, in order to provide a qualifying submission.  If a Participant’s submission does not match the spelling provided by the Station on air, the Station reserves the right to delete, reject, remove, or otherwise not consider such submissions when selecting a winner. 


Participants are required to submit all requested information, which may include their first and last name, telephone number, email address, address, city, state, zip code, and certify they meet the age requirements, in order to participate.  The Station reserves the right to delete, reject, remove, or otherwise not consider any submission which does not contain all requested information.  Multiple Participants are not permitted to utilize the same phone number.  Failing to provide separate phone numbers for each Participant may result in a Participant’s submission being disqualified.  In order to avoid disqualification, only the authorized account holder of the submitted phone number should use that phone number to participate.  The authorized account holder is the natural person who is assigned to the phone number by a cellular service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning the phone number. Participants may not utilize more than one phone number to increase the number of submissions for that Participant.  Use of any device or method to automate entry is prohibited.  


Only those submissions that are received by 11:59 PM local time containing the keywords aired that day will be considered in selecting a winner.  The Promotion administrator’s computer is the official time-keeping device for the Promotion.  Only those submissions which the Promotion administrator deem timely will be considered in selecting a winner.  Proof of submission or other indication of submission will not be accepted to prove the timeliness of a submission. 




This Promotion is only sponsored by the individuals and entities defined as Sponsors herein and in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by any third party, including social media platforms or search engines.  By submission of an entry, the Participant releases all Sponsors from any responsibility or liability for the Promotion’s administration, prizes or promotion. A Participant’s entry information is being provided to the Station only.   


Sponsors are not responsible for any technical issues which may result in an invalid submission, including disrupted , delayed, lost, or unavailable internet connections; cell phone service and/or carrier issues; computer failures, errors, or data loss of any kind; failed, incomplete, garbled or deleted computer or network transmissions; inability to access any website or online service; any other error or malfunction, late, lost, illegible or misdirected entries; or for printing errors in any advertisement, entry form or the rules. 


By entering the Contest, the Participant agrees to the use of the Participant’s personal information as described in the Station’s Privacy Policy, located on the Station’s website.  Through participation in this Contest, Participants agree to receive marketing materials from the Station and Station’s contest sponsors.

A total of (50) Fifty prizes of $1,000 dollars each will be awarded throughout the duration of the contest. 


  1. A Participant’s odds of winning a Daily Prize depend upon the number of Participants and the number of valid entries submitted by each Participant.  This is a nationwide contest, and winners will be selected from a pool of submissions from throughout the United States.  Even if the Station has rebranded or renamed this Contest, as described in Exhibit A, Participants are still subject to a national pool of Participants.


  1. Participants are only eligible to win one $1000 Daily Prize per contest.  Any Participant who has already received a Daily Prize in the ongoing Contest period will be ineligible to receive an additional $1000 Daily Prize.



  1. Winner Selection and Notification.


Selection of $1000 Daily Prize Winners: Two winners will be randomly selected each weekday, beginning Tuesday, September 19th, 2023, excluding U.S. National Holidays, during the Promotional Period. To win, a Participant will be selected from the valid submissions received the prior business day using a random number generator.


Notification: The Contest Administrator will attempt to contact the selected Participant by phone, utilizing the phone number provided at the time of submission.  The call to the selected participant will likely occur (but is not required to occur) between 12PM and 2PM Eastern Time.  The call may, but is not required to, show caller ID as coming from an Indiana number (area code 260) or as an “UNKNOWN” caller; there is no guarantee what the call will show on the Participant’s phone and the Sponsors are not responsible for any error or confusion that may result from how the call is displayed on the Participant’s phone.  The Contest Administrator will attempt to contact the selected Participant by phone three times within a 15-minute period, although those calls could happen within a smaller window of time. No messages, voice mail, or other type of messages will be left on the selected Participant’s phone. If the Contest Administrator is unable to contact the selected Participant after calling them three times, then an alternate Participant will be randomly selected, and the same contact method will be utilized to reach the alternate Participant.  If the first selected participant cannot be contacted, a maximum of four alternate participants will be selected each day.  If after attempting to contact the five randomly selected participants in this manner, the Contest Administrator has been unable to contact any of the randomly selected participants, an additional five individuals will be selected from the valid submission pool.  If contact is made with the randomly chosen Participant after three phone calls, that Participant will be awarded the prize.  Participants need not be listening or present to win.  The call with the selected winner will be recorded for future playback on any and all participating Stations.


All winner information, such as name and location, will be collected at the time that the winner is contacted.  This information will be sent to the local Station.  The IBA will provide the local station with a check for the prize amount, made out to the local Station from the Cash Contest Account held by the IBA.  The local Station will then draft a check to the winner, utilizing the information provided to the Contest Administrator at the time of winning. Winners will be notified by the local station to pick up their checks.  The Sponsors and Station will notify winners of when to pick up their checks as soon as practicably possible.  Any prizes, certificates, or checks not claimed within 60 days of notice will be forfeited by the winner.  Winner checks must be claimed by the selected winner, in person, at the Station’s designated location, with proper identification.  The Station reserves the right to refuse to deliver any check, prize, or certificate to any individual who’s proper identification does not match the information provided by the selected winner at the time they are contacted, or in accordance with all federal, state, and local laws. Decisions of Station management with respect to the Contest are final.


The Sponsors are not responsible for any technical issues, natural disasters, or other intervening factor which may prevent the Contest Administrator from being able to reach the selected Participant.  The Sponsors are also not responsible for any technical issues, natural disasters, or other intervening factors which prevent the selected winner’s contact information from being correctly recorded or provided to the Station. It is the responsibility of the selected winner to ensure that the information provided at the time of contact is correct.  Any failure to provide correct information may result in the prize being forfeited or the winner being unable to collect the prize. The Station, Sponsors, and Contest Administrator reserve the right to withhold any prizes which they suspect may be fraudulently obtained.
