Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein
- Contest Period: The Contest begins on March 29, 2018, at or around 6:00:00 AM Central Time (“CT”) and ends on May 25, 2018, at or around 9:00:00 AM CT, and will run on non-holiday weekdays at or around 7:20 AM CT, and 8:20 AM CT (the “Contest Period”).
- How to Play: This is a listen-and-win Contest. To participate in the Contest, listeners need to listen to WSHE 100.3 at or around 6:20 AM CT, 7:20 AM CT and 8:20 AM CT on weekdays during the Contest Period for the DJ to ask for a designated number caller (for example, 25th caller, 10th caller, etc) to call into the station (“Call-In Prompt”) after the Brooke & Jubal Phone Tag radio segment ends. The Call-In Prompt will be aired once per hour listed above each non-holiday weekday during the Contest Period. When a listener hears the Call-In Prompt and is the designated caller who reaches the Station by calling 312-297-1003, he/she will be deemed a winner for that hour.
Odds of winning depend on the number of listeners calling after a Call-In Prompt is stated on-air. Limit one (1) winner per person and 2 winners per household during the entire Contest Period.
