92.5 The Chief will conduct this contest concurrently and simultaneously with radio stations affiliated with 92.5 The Chief and in various states. Listeners of 92.5 The Chief 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 unable to speak with the contestant who sent the text within 5 minutes from the time that contestant’s cell number is dialed, then the $1,000 prize will be forfeited and another random text will be chosen with the same procedure until a winner is determined. 92.5 The Chief is not responsible for any difficulties contacting the station or entering the Contest, any malfunctions or errors, whether technical or typographical or human error, experienced due to overload, internet availability or texting server issues. Text messages are sent through third party providers; 92.5 The Chief does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, the delivery or timeliness of any text message entry. Prize will be available within 10 business days. Be safe – don’t text and drive

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.
