This Sweepstakes is sponsored by Educational Media Foundation, dba Air1, the decisions of the “Sponsor” regarding the selection of winners and all other aspects of the Sweepstakes shall be final and binding in all respects. Sponsor will not be responsible for typographical, printing or other inadvertent errors in these Official Rules or in other materials or announcements relating to the Sweepstakes.
All Sweepstakes entries become the property of Air1 and we may withhold any or all Sweepstakes entry materials for any reason station management deems crucial to the completion of the Sweepstakes or for reasons relating to publicity or advertising. Each entrant may enter a Sweepstakes only once, unless otherwise specified. In the case of multiple entries by the same person, all entries may be discarded, and the entrant disqualified.
Only one (1) person per household may qualify or win an Air1 Sweepstakes within a 30-day period.
Each entrant agrees that in the event he or she wins a contest, Air1 shall have the right, without further compensation, to publicize and/or broadcast his or her name, voice, likeness, city of residence and the fact that he or she won the contest. Entrants further agree that Air1 may use such identifying information to publicize its radio station, website and/or other contests.
Sweepstakes winners agree that they may be contacted by telephone and the call recorded for potential use on air. All calls to Air1 are taped and may be aired on Air1 without further permission.
For all internet entries:
Listeners accessing Sponsor’s radio station audio via IP connections like website-based streaming or mobile devices are welcome to enter. However, Sponsor cannot be responsible for delays in electronic transmission of station audio to IP devices. Listeners may be listening via the Sponsor’s radio station stream on the Internet: please be advised that Listener may be listening to a delayed stream of the radio signal, which may vary depending on Listener’s computer’s memory capacity and the speed of Listener’s internet connection and may be delayed by several minutes. Sweepstakes participants should not rely on streamed broadcasts in order to participate and Sponsor assumes no responsibility for Sweepstakes participants not making timely phone calls to the Sponsor’s radio station as a result of the delays in the internet stream. By entering this Sweepstakes, listeners acknowledge and agree to this specific provision of these Official Rules. In addition, Sponsor will not be responsible for loss of service to the Sweepstakes Line or for a participant’s failure to reach the Sweepstakes Line due to malfunction of any network or system, congestion, any technical or human error, failures or malfunctions of any kind, including the congestion, overload, busy signals, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone call. In the event of interruption of power or telephone service to Sponsor during a call-in period of the Sweepstakes prior to accepting the designated caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air a call-in opportunity, Sponsor will not replay the affected call-in opportunity and the number of Finalists opportunities awarded in this Sweepstakes will be reduced accordingly. If a designated caller is ineligible or fails to comply with any term of condition of these Official Rules, that caller will be disqualified, and no Finalist will be selected during that call-in period. Decisions of the Sweepstakes “sponsor” are final.
For all text entries:
For contests with text-message based entry, entrants will be asked to provide certain information via a text message submission to the short code announced or otherwise stated during the contest. When you enter via text message, you may receive at least one (1) automated text message to your entry and you may receive one (1) additional automated text message notifying if you are a finalist, qualifier, or winner, as applicable. Text messaging may not be available from all carriers. Standard text messaging rates may apply, and the Sponsor(s) assume no responsibility for any fees or charges associated with any text message sent to or from the Sponsor(s). For help, text HELP to 38568. To stop, text STOP 38568. Individuals who enter by text-messaging will be charged according to their carriers’ standard messaging and data rates, and entrants should contact their carriers for pricing details. By participating in the contest, entrants agree that the station may contact them, via phone or text message, at the telephone number from which the text message entry was received. By participating in a Sweepstakes in which text message-based entry is permitted, entrants acknowledge that text messages are distributed and delivered through third party providers. The Sponsor(s) will at all times consider the time that a message is logged as arriving in its system as being the time of entry, regardless of the time at which the entrant attempted to send the entry. The Sponsor(s), through its third-party text messaging administrators, will store all messages received on its system. Decisions of the Sweepstakes “sponsor” are final.
Your cell phone carrier’s standard message and data rates may apply with text messaging contests. For help or support inquiries, text the word HELP to 38568, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.hipcricket.com/h. Text STOP to 38568 to end all messages.

Air1 is not responsible for service outages, connection speeds or other sources of delay in telephone and/or internet systems which may influence or affect the chances of winning a contest. In the event awards based on call-ins (a prize awarded to the "9th caller," etc.) Air1 reserves the right to disqualify two or more callers who appear to be “tied” and award the prize to the next caller. Callers may not place simultaneous calls on multiple phone lines.
Entrants are responsible for the payment of any and all taxes applicable to prizes and the award of prizes. Air1 is required to report winnings exceeding $600 per year (in the aggregate) to the Internal Revenue Service and will provide winners falling within this requirement with an IRS Form 1099 after the close of the calendar year in which the prize(s)were won. Winners agree to provide Air1 with their social security number and such other information as may be required by Air1 to comply with applicable laws.
Air1 reserves the right to substitute another prize of equal or greater value for the prize originally announced if the original Sweepstakes prize is or becomes unavailable. Air1 is not liable if a concert or event with which a prize is associated is canceled due to circumstances beyond Air1’s control. Unless impossible or impractical, prizes will be mailed to the winner within 60 days after the winner is selected and announced on air. Air1 is not responsible for any delays in receipt of prizes caused by the postal system.
Winners may not request substitution or other consideration from the originally awarded prize.
Prizes are non-transferable. Prizes have no cash value, expressed or implied.
Air1 reserves the right to disqualify any entrant or winner (whether or not the winner’s identity has been announced) who does not adhere to the rules applicable to the Sweepstakes in which he or she entered or who gains an unfair advantage through fraud or unsportsmanlike conduct in participating in the contest.
Unless otherwise stated, all winners must respond to sponsor’s notification to claim said prize(s) within forty-eight (48) hours of notice or attempted notice. If prize involves travel, potential winner must have all travel booked no more than 30 days after initial contact from Sponsor. If travel is not booked in that time, the prize will be considered forfeited. If prize involves travel and also indicated for “family”, the term “family” is defined as a group of two or more persons related by birth, marriage, or adoption who live together in a single household; all such related persons are considered as members of one family.
With respect to any disputes regarding any contest(s), all decisions of the “sponsor” are final.
All rules are subject to change without notice.
In the event any Sweepstakes specific rules conflict with these general rules, the Sweepstakes specific rules shall control. On occasion, circumstances may require the rules of a Sweepstakes to be modified.
