Contest Rules

95.1 SHINE-FM contests are open to any listeners in the immediate on-air listening area, that are US residents and 18 or older, unless otherwise specified. The odds of winning a prize will depend on the number of qualified entries received.

Only one prize per household within any thirty day period. Employees of the Peter and John Radio Fellowship, its program sponsors, advertisers, advertising agencies, their affiliates, representatives, employees of other radio or tv stations, and members of their immediate family are not eligible to participate and win. All participants and winners grant 95.1 SHINE-FM permission to use their names, characters, photographs, voices, and likenesses and waive any claims to royalty, right, or remuneration for such use.

Prizes are non-transferable and void where prohibited by law and no cash substitution is allowed. Any valuation of a prize is based on information provided to 95.1 SHINE-FM.

Winners may be required to provide a tax identification number or social security number before a prize is awarded. Any person winning over $600 in prizes will receive an IRS form 1099 at the end of the calendar year and winners are responsible for reporting and paying any and all applicable taxes. Each participant and winner waives any and all claims of liability against 95.1 SHINE-FM, its employees and agents. If required, winners must sign a liability release prior to receiving their prize. 95.1 SHINE-FM may withhold any contest materials crucial to the completion of the contest.

If the winner is instructed to pick up their prize, it must be claimed within thirty calendar days of winning. Proper identification is required and you’ll have to pick them up at our studios during our regular business hours. We will not notify winners of the time remaining on their prize, unclaimed prizes will automatically be forfeited after 30 days.

In the event that a winner voluntarily chooses to not accept a prize, they automatically forfeit all claims to that prize. The station has the right, but not the obligation, to award that prize to a runner-up. The station may substitute prizes of equal value and is not responsible for any defective prizes.

95.1 SHINE-FM is not responsible for the inability of a participant to complete an entry into a contest and we are not responsible for malfunctions, failures or problems of any kind that may prohibit anyone from completing a contest entry over the phone, online, through text message, or through any way entry into a contest may be required. In the case of a dispute, the decision of 95.1 SHINE-FM is final. We reserve the right to disqualify any participant or winner who we deem ineligible. All decisions in regards to a contest will be made by 95.1 SHINE-FM and are final.
