Prize Pick Up Info


What should I bring?

The Station reserves the right to ask contest winners to provide adequate identification in order to claim any prize won through a contest sponsored by the Station (for example, valid driver's license, passport, or other government ID).


Can I exchange or substitute my prize?

The prize(s) must be accepted as awarded. No substitutions, or exchanges are permitted. An alternate prize of equal or greater value due to unforeseen circumstances, may be awarded by the Station at its discretion.  Where your prize consists of a ticket or tickets to an event, the Station is not responsible for replacing tickets in the event of cancellations as a result of the weather, promoter, performer, or other reasons beyond our control.


How long do I have to pick up my prize?

Prizes must be claimed within 30 days of winning unless otherwise noted in the contest rules. Certain prizes, such as concert or show tickets, may not be available immediately following the completion of the contest, but the Station guarantees that the prize will be available a minimum of one week prior to the event.


How old do I have to be to claim my prize?

To claim a prize you must be at least 18 years of age. If the winner of a prize is under the age of 18, unless otherwise stated, a parent or guardian must accompany the winner to collect the prize with a piece of government photo ID belonging to the winner.


In the event a winner chooses not to accept a prize or the prize is not claimed within the 30 day period, the winner forfeits any and all claims to the prize.


Where do I collect my prize?

Prizes can be claimed any time after being won, unless stipulated otherwise, by visiting the Station, (insert address), during our office hours: Monday to Friday 9AM- 5PM, except when the office is closed due to statutory holidays. The Station will not mail or otherwise deliver prizes.


Can I have someone else pick up my prize on my behalf?

Yes, someone else may pick up the prize for you, as long as they provide us with the winner's information/identification, and the winner must contact the station beforehand to make us aware that someone else will be picking up the prize and to identify the person who will be picking up the prize.
