(1) Legality
It is the policy of WREK Radio to comply with the contest provisions in Section 508(a) of the Communications Act of 1934, 47 U.S.C. § 509, as amended from time to time (the “Act”), and all other applicable United States legislation.
(2) Eligibility Restrictions
All listeners within the United States are eligible to enter. WREK Radio reserves the right to revoke eligibility for listener behavior, including, but not limited to, harassment of operators or at venues, attempts to mask or falsify identity, any reported violation of venue rules, or any other situations in which it would be deemed necessary to revoke the eligibility of a contest winner at the discretion of the WREK Contest Director.
(3) Entry Deadline Dates
Contest entry for WREK Radio will occur via calling in to WREK Radio or social media giveaways. Entry deadline is thirty (30) minutes after the contest is announced via phone entry, and two (2) days after announced over social media, unless a winner has already been selected or a deadline is otherwise stated.
(4) Prize Rules
The prize(s) that may be awarded to the eligible winner(s) are not transferable, redeemable for cash or exchangeable for any other prize.  All prizes must be redeemed from the WREK Radio station within thirty (30) days of the contest end date unless otherwise stated in the contest’s official rules. Certain prizes are date specific (e.g., concerts, trips, etc.) and the winner(s) must be available on the dates specified.  If a winner cannot be contacted or is disqualified for any reason, WREK Radio reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine an alternate winner or not to award that winner’s prize. Contests will be conducted such that there is no possibility of a tie.
If the contest prize is concert tickets, it is the responsibility of the contest winner to check the concert, venue, and timing on the day of the concert show and to stay apprised of potential changes in any of the advertised concert show details or possible show cancellations. WREK Radio is not responsible or liable for acts outside of WREK’s control that may result in nonfulfillment of the contest prize advertised, such as, but not limited to, cancellation of an event to which a person received tickets. In such instance, WREK Radio may be contacted to determine if a substitute prize is available and a substitute prize may be awarded at the sole discretion of WREK Radio.
Contest prizes may include tickets to concerts, tickets to festivals, CDs, records, or WREK merchandise. Prize valuation for concert tickets is determined by the market value of the ticket from the original vendor.
Winners will be required to provide their names, telephone numbers, and possibly email or Facebook/Twitter information depending on the nature of the contest. This information is protected and not used for any purpose other than to contact the winner if they need to be contacted. By participating in WREK Radio contests, participants consent to be contacted by a telephone call, text, email, or direct message regarding the contest.
