General Contest Rules

Electric 96.9 General Contest Rules and Prize Policies:

To give all our listeners the opportunity to feel the excitement of winning from Electric 96.9, we ask contestants to remember a few guidelines. Please wait at least 30 days after you win a prize to play another contest on Electric. We also limit most contests to one winner per household. Some contests have additional restrictions that will be announced or posted as needed. Unless otherwise specified or arranged, there are three ways to pick up a prize:

  1. Pick up your prize in person at our studios, Monday through Wednesday between 9am and 6pm. You have three weeks to pick up your prize. After that, we will give it to someone else.
  2. Someone else can pick up the prize for you, but they need to bring along a copy of your drivers license.
  3. We can mail the prize to you, but we are not responsible for prizes lost in the mail.

Most prizes won on-air at Electric 96-9 or on  are to be picked up at our offices. This is a necessary policy because many of the prizes are too big, bulky, or heavy to be mailed. Other times we may give away tickets for shows or events that will occur only a day or two past the giveaway date, so there is not enough time to mail these items. We also give away many prizes that are limited, one of a kind, or not replaceable. If they are lost in the mail, we cannot get replacements for the winners. If your prize will not be available for normal pickup, special instructions will be given to you at the time of winning. Prizes not picked up within two weeks may be forfeited. Prizes such as concert or event tickets that are for a specific show, concert or event must be picked up at the offices of Electric 96.9 prior to 6pm Central time on the last day of business prior to the show, concert or event. Electric 96.9 assumes no responsibility for redeeming such tickets should a concert or event be cancelled, postponed, or not held for any reason whatsoever. If you win tickets to a concert or event that is canceled, Electric 96-9 is not obligated to replace those tickets with tickets to another event or concert.

Unless otherwise posted, contests on Electric 96.9 are open to all legal U.S. residents of Kentucky, Illinois, Tennessee, Missouri, Indiana and Arkansas who reside within the Electric 96.9 coverage area. Contestants must be 18 years old or older to win and/or claim prizes with a retail value of $100 or more, or certain prizes that by their nature should be restricted to persons 18 years old or older. The age limit may be adjusted according to the nature of the prize. Employees of Bristol Broadcasting Company, Inc., employees of subsidiary and affiliated companies and their respective advertising and promotion agencies, and members of the immediate families or households of said individuals are not eligible. Owners, directors, and employees of business entities that are primary sponsors of any contest or promotion, and the members of the immediate families or households of such individuals are not eligible to participate in the particular contest(s) with which their business entities are associated. Owners, directors and employees of business entities of whatsoever nature that are engaged in the same or substantially similar types of business as that of Bristol Broadcasting Company, and the members of the immediate families or households of such individuals are not eligible.

Unless otherwise posted, only one member of an immediate family or household may win a “major prize” ($100 value or more) in any single contest or promotion.
