Any winning contestant must be the participant who originally dialed the phone to the radio station to participate in the Contest. No family members, friends, office associates, or any other person will be allowed to participate in a Contest on another person's behalf. A contestant must provide his or her own name as listed on his or her valid Georgia Driver’s License or Georgia State Issued ID. If a contestant uses a false name, an invalid Georgia Driver’s License or Georgia State Issued ID, or another person's Georgia Driver’s License or Georgia State Issued ID, he or she will be immediately disqualified from the Contest and be ineligible to win any prize.

Telephone calls will be taken by Contest operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after the end of each Song of the Hour announcement to determine the 14th caller.  The determinations of Sponsor and Contest operators will be final and binding in all respects.

Enter as often as you like, provided that the use of automatic telephone dialing equipment or other software or computer assisted dialing equipment is prohibited and may result in your disqualification.

Sponsor will not be responsible for loss of service to the Contest Line or for a contestant’s failure to reach the Contest Line due to malfunction of any network or system, congestion, overload, busy signals, cell phone drop out, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone call. In the event of interruption of power or telephone service during the designated call-in times of the Contest and prior to identifying and accepting the 14th caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air a call-in opportunity, the call-in period affected by the interruption may or may not be replayed at the resumption of service, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the event a 14th caller gets disconnected before being declared a winner, Sponsor may resume the call-in opportunity affected and declare the next caller a winner, pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.  Sponsor will not be responsible for dropped calls from mobile devices or land lines and dropped calls may result in the potential winner’s disqualification and forfeiture of all interest in any prize.

Listeners accessing Sponsor’s station audio via IP connections like website-based streaming or mobile devices are welcome to enter. However, Sponsor will not be responsible for delays in electronic transmission of station audio to IP devices. By entering a Contest, listeners acknowledge their understanding and agreement to this specific provision within these Contest Rules.

5.         Winner Odds.  Odds of winning depend on the total number of people attempting to call 404-741-0104 after the Song of the Hour ends, and the order in which calls are received.
