Official Rules for WRVO Contests and Giveaways

How to enter: No purchase or contribution is necessary to enter any WRVO giveaway. Entries from those who do not make a purchase or contribution receive the same consideration as those who do. You can enter the giveaways by phone or email. All entries must include the requested information - for example: individual’s first and last names, shipping address, email address and phone number.

Eligibility: Anyone 18 years of age or older can enter the giveaways except employees of WRVO Public Media and their immediate family. To comply with Canadian sweepstakes rules, if a Canadian is selected as a winner, the individual will be required to answer a basic skill question before the prize can be awarded.

From time to time WRVO may conduct campaign giveaways aimed at a specific group, such as new listeners or digital users or specific communities. Eligibility to enter any such giveaways will be clearly stated on-air and/or online. In such cases, as with all WRVO giveaways, no purchase or donation will be required to enter or to win.

Selection and notification of winner: Winners will be selected by random drawings managed by WRVO and notified within 72 hours of the contest deadline by email or phone. If contact information is requested from the winner and the winner does not respond by the deadline indicated by the notification, the prize may be released to another winner.

Chance of winning: The chance of winning depends upon the number of eligible entries received. Entry constitutes permission given to WRVO to use the winner’s name and hometown without additional compensation. A list of winners' names will be kept on file at WRVO for 30 days and is available by emailing giveaways@wrvo.org. WRVO will not disclose to the public any entrant or winner address, phone number, or email contact information.

General: By participating in giveaways, participants agree to the official rules, and that WRVO and its employees will have no liability for any injuries, losses, or damages of any kind resulting from their use of the prize or their participation in the giveaway. WRVO reserves the right to substitute prizes of equal or greater value in the event an awarded prize becomes unavailable. Winner may not exchange or assign prizes or redeem them for cash. The prizes range in value, up to $600. Winner is responsible for all federal, state, and local taxes, and for any other fees or costs associated with claiming or using the prize. WRVO disclaims all warranties, guarantees or representations express or implied, concerning the condition, quality, or merchantability of any prize.

Restrictions: One entry per person. Only one prize per person. WRVO reserves the right to cancel any giveaway and not award any prize in the event that in its judgment unforeseen developments warrant cancellation.
