Contest Rules

The following contest rules will apply for all contests conducted by WSIC.

  1. WSIC does not discriminate for any reason when conducting its contests.
  2. Contests on WSIC are open to all individuals who are able to do what is required to be involved (for example: calling the on-air number to answer a question).
  3. Contests administered by WSIC can be entered by following instructions given at the time of administration. This may include, but is not limited to, calling with a trivia answer or sharing a comment on-air.
  4. Contest entry deadlines vary by contest. The time and procedure for selecting winners vary by contest.
  5. Information on whether or not prizes can be won and the nature of such prizes will be shared at the time contests are administered. WSIC will conduct valuation of such prizes if necessary and appropriate.
  6. You agree that any information provided to WSIC including, but not limited to, your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address may be used to market the products of WSIC or anyone it chooses to you. You may “opt-out” of such marketing by contacting WSIC and stating that you wish to be excluded from these promotions. This applies to information provided at any point including, but not limited to, before, during, or after a contest.
  7. Individuals who have won a contest will not be eligible to win another contest for a period of thirty (30) days.
  8. Individuals have 24-48 hours to claim their prize via email, phone, or other means of communication.
  9. Individuals have thirty (30) days to pick-up their prize after having won but may need to collect it sooner if the prize is time-sensitive (for example, tickets to an event that is set to occur before the thirty-day period is up). Weekends and holidays are counted as part of the thirty-day period. Prizes not picked-up within the thirty-day period may expire, be used by WSIC, or may otherwise not be available. The determination as to the use or status of the prize following the thirty-day period is at the sole discretion of WSIC. Individuals must pick- up their prize at WSIC Radio – 1117 Radio Road, Statesville, NC 28677 during normal business hours (9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday). In some cases, individuals may be allowed or required to collect their prize at a different time. Reasonable arrangements for this will be made on a case-by-case basis. Prizes will not be mailed unless WSIC opts to do so on a case-by-case basis. WSIC is not required, however, to mail prizes to winners.
  10. Winners may be required to present a photo id when coming to pick-up a prize.
  11. Individuals will not be notified by WSIC to tell them the remaining time they have to pick-up a prize. The only notification individuals will receive in regards to their prize is the initial announcement on-air that they have won the contest. Other mentions may be made on-air, however, these not guaranteed.
  12. Anyone calling into WSIC, including contestants, agrees that their voice may be recorded and used on-air in future broadcasting by WSIC without compensation.
  13. Contestants agree that by entering, their name, likeness, and voice may be used by WSIC at any point, for any reason, and for any period of time in the future without compensation.
  14. Contestants and prizewinners agree that their names may be used on-line by WSIC including (but not limited to) the station’s website, Facebook Page, and Twitter Page.
  15. If a staff member of WSIC takes a picture or pictures of a contest winner and other individuals with them at the time of picking up a prize, that picture may be used on-line by WSIC including (but not limited to) the station’s website, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. Any of these pictures may also be used on TV 21.2. Furthermore, WSIC reserves the right to use such pictures in any manner or format without any compensation to the individual(s) pictured.
  16. WSIC will not be responsible for technical and or human error that may occur (by either staff or the contestant) when administering contests on-air even if they affect your entry to the contest.
  17. If a situation arises in administering a contest where more than one person could be the winner, it will be at the sole discretion of WSIC as to how the situation will be resolved. Situations such as this may be resolved by (but not limited to) disqualifying individuals “tied” to win the contest, or by providing additional prizes. Again- it is at the sole discretion of WSIC as to how these situations will be resolved.
  18. WSIC is in no way required to provide more than one (1) prize per contest.
  19. Individuals who are employed by WSIC, or who are members of a staff member’s immediate family, will not be eligible to win prizes in contests.
  20. WSIC reserves the right to cancel a contest already in progress for any reason whatsoever.
  21. All prizes that are won by individuals are given to the winner as-is. There are no warranties, etc. If you are unable to use/redeem your prize for any reason, there will be no refund/alternate prize awarded by WSIC. WSIC is not responsible, nor will it provide a re-fund/alternate prize, if a source (such as a business) from which a prize comes goes out of business, operation, or is in some other way unable to provide the prize before the prize can be renewed, obtained, etc.
  22. WSIC will not be responsible for a prizewinner’s use of the prize they win. The winner assumes all responsibility for problems, damages, loss, etc. incurred by obtaining/using the prize and will hold harmless WSIC, its management, affiliates, advertisers, employees, and their families.
