Listen to KUPD-FM weekdays, Monday through Friday, during the 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. hours from Monday, January 8th, 2018, through 4:00 p.m. on Friday, January 19th, 2018, excluding Monday, January 15th, 2018 for it’s an observed national holiday.  The on-air talent will announce the hourly “keyword” for listeners to text in to KUPD-FM’s short code “97936”.  Listeners will have until the end of that hour to text in to participate for a chance to become a winner.  Or listeners can send an email to holidebt@98kupd.com which includes the “keyword” and a telephone number at which the person can be reached within that hour; listeners will have until the end of that hour to send the email with the correct keyword for a chance to become a winner.  

From all eligible entries received for each hourly keyword from both text message entries and email entries, one (1) entry will be randomly drawn at the KUPD-FM Studios after the one (1) hour period ends for each keyword to become a winner.  The winner will be called on the number taken from his/her text entry or email entry within fifteen (15) minutes after the one (1) hour period ends for each keyword.  If the person whose name is randomly drawn does not answer his/her phone, the phone goes to voice mail or they are not understandable, he/she will not become a winner and an alternate winner will be randomly drawn from the eligible entries received.  This process will continue until a person whose number is randomly drawn answers his/her phone. Non-winning entries for any keyword random drawing will NOT roll over into subsequent keyword random drawings.

Text message rates apply.  In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting a mobile text entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the mobile number is registered.  The winner may be required to provide evidence that the winner is the authorized account holder of the mobile number associated with the winning entry and complete an affidavit and any applicable release. Limit one text message per person, per specific hourly keyword.

Limit:  A listener may enter once per keyword, but may only win once during the entire sweepstakes period; one winner per household.
