to participate. The term “immediate family members” includes spouses, parents and step-parents, siblings

share the same residence at least three (3) months out of the year. The Contest is subject to all applicable
federal, state and local laws and regulations. Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional
agreement to these Official Rules and Station’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related

- Contest Period. The Contest entry period will begin at 10 am CT on March 9, 2022 and will run
weekdays from 10 am CT until 7pm CT through April 6, 2022 (the “Contest Period”). The Station’s
computer is the official time keeping device for this Contest.
- How to Enter.
On-Air: Listen to the Station weekdays from 11am until 2pm and 3pm until 6pm during the Contest
Period. When the Station plays the “cue-to-call” sounder, listeners must call the Station at 504-260-9292.
Caller number 9 to the Station, as determined by the Station in its sole discretion, will be entered for a
chance to win a prize. Time Delay Between Over-the-Air Analog Signal and Internet Broadcast: Due
to the time delay that exists between the Station’s analog over-the-air signal and the Station’s online
webcast, listeners who listen to the Station online may hear the cue to call later than listeners listening to
the Station’s analog over-the-air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener entering this Contest onair may be diminished.
Online: Visit the Station’s website www.alt923.com during the Contest Period, click on the “Contest”
link, click on the “Fest Year Ever” Contest link, and complete an entry form. All entries must be
received by 5pm CT on April 8, 2022 to be eligible for a chance to win a prize. Limit
one (1) entry per person per day, regardless of how many email addresses a person may possess and
use. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to
submit more than one (1) entry per day by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations
and logins, or any other methods will void that entry and the entrant may be disqualified. Use of any
automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Station is not responsible
for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, inappropriate or misdirected registrations, all of which
will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the
email address used to register will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the
natural person assigned the telephone number by the wireless carrier or an email address by an Internet
access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses
for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of
being the authorized account holder. All entries become the sole and exclusive property of Station and
will not be returned. Station reserves the right to contact entrants and all other individuals whose email
address is submitted as part of this promotion. No mail-in entries will be accepted.
- Winner Selection. On or about 5pm CT on each March 16, 2022, March 23, 2022, March 30, 2022 and
April 8, 2022, Station will select one potential winner in a random drawing from among all valid entries
received by Station during the Contest Period (five (5) winners total). Each winning entrant will be
contacted using the email address and/or telephone number provided with the entry and may be awarded
the prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these rules). Station’s
decisions as to the administration and operation of the Contest and the selection of the potential winner
are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Failure to respond to the initial verification
contact within 24 hours of notification or failure to claim the prize within 24 hours of verification as a
winner will result in disqualification and forfeiture of the prize.
- Verification of Potential Winner. THE ELIGIBILITY OF ALL POTENTIAL CONTEST WINNERS
IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY STATION WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING
IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE CONTEST. The potential winner must continue to comply with
all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements.

and/or winner determination. The potential winner will be required to sign and return to Station, within
24 hours of the date notice is sent, an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (except where
prohibited) to claim the prize, if applicable. A winner who returns the affidavit of eligibility and
liability/publicity release will be deemed to have accepted the contest prize and thereafter will not be
permitted to rescind their acceptance of the prize and/or return the prize. If a potential winner cannot be
contacted, fails to sign and return the affidavit of eligibility and/or the liability/publicity release within the
required time period (if applicable), or if the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable,
