Grand in Your Hand Contest Rules

FM99 Grand in Your Hand Contest: Starting April 1st through May 3rd … Listen weekdays 9am to 6pm up to twice a day, for the $1,000 text word.  When you hear it you will have 10 minutes to text the correctly spelled word to 77000.  Message and data rates may apply. One text per play. Text messages are sent through third party providers; WNOR does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, the delivery or timeliness of any text message entry. 

WNOR will conduct this contest concurrently and simultaneously with radio stations affiliated with WNOR, and in various states.  Listeners of WNOR will, therefore, be competing with listeners of other radio stations to win the same prize. A station will be chosen at random from all the participating radio stations. Then a text received by that station will be chosen at random.  The cell phone number from the chosen text will be called and the reaction recorded for broadcast.  If we are unable to speak with the contestant who sent the text within 5 minutes from the time we dial that contestant’s cell number, then the $1,000 prize will be forfeited and another random text will be chosen with the same procedure until a winner is determined. Prize will be available within 10 business days. Be safe… Don’t text and drive

WNOR contests are open to all eligible Virginia and North Carolina residents 18 or older have not won anything on WNOR in the past 30 days or any prize valued at $600 or more in the past 6 months. Only one winner per household is permitted within 30 days after a household has a winner. Any prize awarded to an ineligible listener will be deemed null and void, and an alternate eligible winner may be named.

Employees of WNOR, Tidewater Communications LLC, and its ultimate parent company, Saga Communications, Inc., their advertising agencies, affiliates, contest sponsors, employees and immediate families of each, and employees of all media of mass communication within a one hundred mile radius of the WNOR main studio are not eligible to win any contest.  Immediate family includes the spouse, great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of the employee and his/her spouse. This also includes individuals for whom the employee is current legal guardian.
