How to Enter for a Chance to Win
Contest runs every Thursday starting on Thursday Jan 14th, 2010 - Thursday Dec 30th, 2010. Every Thursday between the hours of 7am-5pm there will be a total of three numbers called out on air. One number will be announced approximately at 7:50am, one number will be announced approximately at 1:00pm and one number will be announced approximately at 4:00pm. The numbers will be randomly chosen by the WCSX Marketing department. Listeners must write down/remember each of the three numbers from that day. On the following Friday morning during the WCSX morning show with Ken Calvert at 7:50am, Ken Calvert will ask for the 22nd caller to call in and give him all three numbers that were announced on air in the order they were given from the previous day. The 22nd caller (or the first caller thereafter) who gives Ken all three numbers in order correctly will win the 1st prize. Ken will also select a 2nd prize winner, who will also have to call and give him all three numbers in order correctly to win the runner up prize.
Online listeners to the Station web stream may experience a reception delay of up to one minute. Listening to the station’s over-the-air broadcast is the best way to participate in this contest.
Winner qualification is subject to FULL phone call completion, and the verification of the caller’s name, address, home phone number, work/cell phone number and social security number, all of which must be provided prior to completion of the call. Contest calls will not be accepted at any other number.
All contest entries will become the property of Station and will not be acknowledged or returned.
