OF THESE RULES FROM SELECTION AS THAT DAY’S WINNER AND FROM THE CONTEST OVERALL.

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,

Entry materials that have been tampered with or altered are void.  If the Contest Administrators determine, in

their sole discretion, that there is any suspected or actual electronic tampering with the Contest or if technical

difficulties compromise the integrity of the Contest, the Sponsors reserve the right to void the entries at issue

and/or terminate the Contest and conduct a random drawing to award the prize among all eligible entries received

as of the termination date.  If the Contest is terminated due to tampering or technical difficulties prior to its

expiration date, notice will be posted at www.iba.media and on the Station’s website.  If, for any reason, the

Contest is not capable of running as planned, including tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical

failures, or any other causes beyond the control of Sponsors which corrupt or affect the administration, security,

fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Contest, Sponsors reserve the right at their sole discretion to cancel,

1. (1) ONE DAILY PRIZE of $1,000 (USD) will be awarded each weekday for 5 weeks beginning on January

3rd, 2023 (The first drawing occurs one day after contesting starts on January 2nd, 2023). A total of (25)

Twenty-Five prizes of $1,000 dollars each will be awarded throughout the duration of the contest.  

 

2. 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. 

 

3. 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.

 

 

6. Winner Selection and Notification.

 

Selection of $1000 Daily Prize Winners: One winner will be randomly selected each weekday, beginning Tuesday, January

3rd, 2023, excluding U.S. National Holidays, during the Promotional Period. In order 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 nine alternate participants will be selected each day.  If after attempting to contact the 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.
