Contest Rules


Basic Contest Rules

The following are basic contest rules applying to any and all contests run on Yakima Radio Group. 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 YAKIMA RADIO GROUP contests are open to all listeners, unless a specific age is required and specified by an advertiser, agency or by Yakima Radio Group. Full and part-time employees, and their families, of Yakima Radio Group, its representatives, its agencies or employees of any other AM, FM or television broadcast station serving the Fargo-Moorhead Market and persons, and their families, who have been employed by Yakima Radio Grouping the (60) day period immediately preceding the effective date of the contest are ineligible to enter or participate in any and all Yakima Radio Group contests.
II. No purchase is necessary and the contest is void where prohibited by law.
III. Winners are not eligible to participate in any Yakima Radio Group contests for a period of sixty (60) days from the original date of qualifying or winning a contest and or prize conducted by Yakima Radio Group.
IV. All prizes, unless otherwise specified by Yakima Radio Group, must be picked up within thirty (30) days from the date won, between the hours of 10AM and 5PM during regular office business hours at the Yakima Radio Group 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 Yakima Radio Group, 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 Yakima Radio Group 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 Yakima Radio Group.
V. If a winner is under 18 years of age, Yakima Radio Group 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 Yakima Radio Group prize release form to claim prize.
VI. All prizes not claimed within the thirty (30) day period will become the property of Yakima Radio Group. Yakima Radio Group 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 Yakima Radio Group 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. Yakima Radio Group cannot award duplicate prizes to both parties in a “tied-together” situation, which is a circumstance beyond the control of the station.
