- Random Drawing: A random drawing will be conducted on or about the designated end date listed on the post from among all eligible entries received. Decisions of judges are final and binding. Odds of winning depend on the number of entries received. Sponsor will conduct the random drawing. Grand Prize winner will be notified by telephone, or email on or about the date of the drawing. Sponsor will make up to 2 attempts to contact the winner. If the winner cannot be contacted after 2 attempts, that potential winner will forfeit the prize, and the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, time permitting.
- Claiming Your Prize: Upon winner verification, the winners will either, as determined solely by Sponsor, be told how they will receive their prize in one of two ways as follows: (1) Prize Transfer: as a condition of being named an official winner, each potential winner must claim his/her prize in person at 98.9 KPNW Studios located at 98.9 KPNW , 3650 131st Avenue S.E., Suite 550, Bellevue, Washington, 98006 during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) within ten (10) business days of the day he or she wins to verify that he/she is the qualified winner and may be required to sign a Publicity and Liability Release (“Release”) upon (and as a condition of) picking up the Grand Prize. Failure to comply with this deadline shall be deemed to be the winner’s forfeiture of his or her right to claim the Grand Prize. The winner must prove he or she is a qualified winner by presenting acceptable identification (e.g., state driver’s license; state issued identification card; valid passport with address verification; or birth certificate with social security card and photo identification and address verification). If a winner cannot prove he or she is a qualified winner, the prize will not be awarded. OR, if approved by Sponsor (2) Prize Mailed: Sponsor may, at its sole discretion, mail out the prize to the winner. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, mutilated, damaged or delayed mailing of any prizes. All unclaimed or returned prizes remain the property of Sponsor. Winner may also be required to sign and complete a W9 prior to receiving their prize and a 1099 form will be submitted by Sponsor to all appropriate taxing authorities.
