Air1 Pledge Drive Rules
Rules for all contests and promotions during the Air1 Pledge Drive sponsored by Educational Media Foundation / Air1.
NO PURCHASE OR DONATION NECESSARY TO ENTER OR TO WIN. A PURCHASE OR DONATION WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL AND MUNICIPAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. FIND INFORMATION ON ENTERING A CONTEST WITHOUT COMPLETING A DONATION IN THE “HOW TO ENTER” SECTION BELOW.
Subject to the additional restrictions below, the Air1 December Pledge Drive (the “Sweepstakes”) is open to legal U.S. residents who are 18 years or older and are physically located in the U.S. at the time of entry. Employees of Educational Media Foundation, dba Air1 (“Sponsor”), and each of their respective affiliated companies, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotional agencies, and the family members of, and any persons domiciled with, any such employees, are not eligible to enter or to win. The term “family members” includes spouses, parents, grandparents, siblings, children, wards, grandchildren, and in-laws, regardless of where they live.
How to Enter
The Sweepstakes will begin at 12:01 AM PT on November 27, 2023, and end at 6:00 PM PT on December 8, 2023 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for the Sweepstakes. By entering this Sweepstakes, you agree to these Official Rules. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Sweepstakes. Prizes will be awarded throughout the pledge drive. During the pledge drive, website and/or on-air announcements will be made of a time period during which specific prizes will be awarded (each a “prizing opportunity”). All persons who make a donation during the announced period will be eligible to win the announced prize, as will all other persons who have registered during that same time period to be eligible to win the prize without making a donation. Each person who donates during the prizing opportunity will have one entry, as will each person who registers to win during that same announced period. Multiple entries in any prizing opportunity are not permitted. Unless notified otherwise, winners will be chosen at random by Sponsor from among those who entered during the prizing opportunity. Note that the Air1 pledge drive is occurring on all stations affiliated with the Air1 programming network, so entries will be received from throughout the country and potentially from those legal U.S. residents listening outside the US. Your chances to win will depend on how many eligible participants there are during any prizing opportunity.
Individuals may enter each prizing opportunity, but multiple entries by means of software-generated or other automated processes will be disregarded.
The use of multiple identities and/or accounts is prohibited, and any attempt to obtain more than the stated number of entries will void that participant's entries and will result in participant’s disqualification. Incomplete, forged, altered, automated, mechanically reproduced, lost, late misdirected, garbled or illegible entries will be disqualified. Sponsor will not be responsible for failure to receive entries due to transmission failures or technical failures of any kind, including, without limitation, malfunctioning of any network, hardware or software, whether originating with sender, Sponsor, or Sponsor's Sweepstakes application service provider. In the event of a dispute, all online entries will be deemed to have been submitted by the owner of the ISP account from which they were sent, provided that such person satisfies all other Sweepstakes eligibility requirements. For these purposes, an ISP account holder shall mean the natural person assigned to such ISP account by the Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning ISP addresses for the domain associated with such ISP account.
All entries become property of Sponsor and none will be returned. Any questions regarding the number of entries submitted or the owner of an ISP account shall be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, and Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Sweepstakes.
Winner Selection and Odds
Immediately upon the conclusion of the prizing opportunity, Sponsor will select one (1) potential prize winner in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. Limit: One (1) prize per person during the Sweepstakes Period. The description of prizes, the fulfillment and award notification are described below. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
Prizes will be fulfilled approximately three (3) weeks after the conclusion of the Sweepstakes.
The Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of prizes is subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, any gap in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Official Rules and the date the prize is awarded or redeemed. Winners will not receive the difference between the actual retail value at the beginning of the Sweepstakes and the actual retail value at the time of prize delivery.
If the prize is a gift card, card issuer terms and conditions may apply.
If the prize is a scheduled event to take place on a specific date, no refund or compensation will be paid in the event of the cancellation or delay of Trip/Event, or any portion thereof. Sponsor will not be liable if the Trip/Event, or any portion of it, is cancelled or delayed. Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, attempt to reschedule for a future trip/event. Trip/Event tickets are subject to certain terms and conditions as specified by issuer. The terms and conditions of the Trip/Event tickets may govern if the Trip/Event is cancelled due to weather, an act of God, an act of terrorism, civil disturbance, or any other reason. Sponsor is not responsible for, and will not replace, lost, mutilated, or stolen Trip/Event tickets, vouchers, or certificates, no cash substitution shall be offered, and the Sponsor shall have no further responsibility for that portion of the prize. Exact details, including seat locations, shall be determined in the sole discretion of Sponsor.

Winner Notification and Acceptance
Potential winners will be notified on or about 2 weeks after the conclusion of a prizing opportunity or sooner at the phone number or email address provided by the winner at the time of entry.
In order to claim a prize, potential winner must respond to Sponsor's notification within forty-eight (48) hours of notice or attempted notice. Sponsor is required only to leave one voicemail message or send one email.
Potential winners may be required to complete an affidavit of eligibility, and a liability and publicity release (except where prohibited by law), which may require notarization and returned within forty-eight (48) hours of notification. If the prize involves a trip or tickets to an event, a written commitment to attend will be required from the prize winner. Persons traveling as a guest of the prize winner must also sign any affidavit or release that Sponsor may require.
Sponsor's inability to reach a potential winner after a reasonable (as solely determined by Sponsor) effort has been made, the failure of a potential winner to timely respond to a prize notification, the return of any prize notification as undeliverable, the inability of winner and his/her guest to travel within the time period specified by Sponsor, and/or a potential winner's failure to comply with any term or condition of these Official Rules may, in Sponsor's sole discretion, result in the potential winner's disqualification, after which the prize shall be unawarded for the Sweepstakes.
ALL POTENTIAL WNNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY THE SPONSOR. THE DECISION OF THE SPONSOR IS FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE CONTEST. A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL SPONSOR HAS COMPLETED ITS VERIFICATION OF PARTICIPANT'S ELIGIBILITY. SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS.
A winner may waive the right to receive a prize. Prizes are non-assignable and non-transferable and cannot be redeemed for cash. No substitutions allowed by winner. Prizes and individual components of prize packages are subject to availability. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prizes or components of prize packages with a prize or component of equal or greater value. Winner is solely responsible for reporting and payment of any taxes on a prize. Winner may be required to provide his/her valid Social Security Number to Sponsor for tax purposes and/or complete an IRS W-9 form in order to claim a prize. Winners are solely responsible for all federal, state and local taxes on prize value and, as applicable, will be issued an IRS Form 1099 based on the prize value determined by Sponsor. Prizes not won and claimed by eligible winners in accordance with these Official Rules will not be awarded and will remain the property of Sponsor.
Except where prohibited, acceptance of any prize constitutes the winner's irrevocable consent to the publication or other use by Sponsor and its licensees of his or her name, biographical information and likeness in any media, including the Internet, for any commercial, publicity or promotional purpose, without limitation, review or approval, or additional compensation.
By participating, participants agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding in all respects. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify persons found tampering with or otherwise abusing any aspect of this Sweepstakes as solely determined by Sponsor. In the event the Sweepstakes is compromised by a virus, non-authorized human intervention, tampering or other causes beyond the reasonable control of Sponsor which corrupt or impair the administration, security, fairness or proper operation of the Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to suspend, modify or terminate the Sweepstakes. Should the Sweepstakes be terminated prior to the stated expiration date, Sponsor reserves the right to award prizes based on the entries received before the termination date. Proof of sending or submission of an entry will not be deemed proof of receipt by Sponsor.
