Contest Rules

No purchase is ever required to participate in a KGRT-AM contest. 

You must be at least 18 years old with valid identification at the date and time a contest is played.  In the event a particular contest is appropriate for a minor, winners under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to claim the prize. Both individuals must sign an affidavit/release prior to the receipt of the prize.

All contests are subject to federal, state, and local statutes and provisions, including the Federal Communications Commission restrictions.

All KGRT-AM contests are open to any/all listeners who are legal U.S. residents living or working in the terrestrial listening area (such as Dona Ana, Sierra, Luna, Otero Counties, NM; El Paso County, TX) unless otherwise specified by KGRT-AM and its affiliates.

Only one person per household may win a KGRT-AM contest within a thirty (30) day period.  Listeners are eligible to win a prize or prize package with a combined value of $600 only once every twelve months. 

Employees of Adams Radio Group Inc, its participating sponsors/promotional partners, its advertising agencies/businesses, their affiliates, representatives; other media (including Radio, TV, Cable, and Newspapers within a fifty-mile radius of Las Cruces, NM); and their families or households are ineligible to participate or win any contest(s) on KGRT-AM.  These employees and their immediate families are also ineligible to participate or win for a period of six-months after the termination of employment.

KGRT-AM is not responsible for phone or Internet malfunctions.  For telephone entries, only calls to 575-523-KGRT (575-523-5478) are eligible unless otherwise specified.  All contestants acknowledge, as a condition of entry, that KGRT-AM has the right to publicize and/or broadcast his/her name, voice, likeness, or character.  When winners call in for a contest, they may be asked to make an endorsement that they are a listener of KGRT-AM.  No such endorsements come with any further compensation.

Contest-related phone calls made by KGRT-AM personnel may be recorded and will be identified as such at the beginning of the call per Federal Communications Commission rules.  After receiving an individual's permission, the call may be aired.  Likewise, individuals contacted in person may be recorded with their permission.  Winner's conversations may be broadcast on KGRT-AM. All winners agree to grant KGRT-AM permission to broadcast the conversation and further agree to identify themselves, and their City of residence. Likewise, all winners grant KGRT-AM permission to broadcast their cash and prize winnings as part of live and recorded promotional announcements on KGRT-AM or other public media including TV and newspapers.

All contest entries become the property of KGRT-AM until and after the completed execution of the contest.

All tax and other liabilities incurred as a result of any prize are the sole responsibility of the recipient. All winners will receive their cash prize from KGRT-AM within twenty-one (21) days after winning.

Prizes must be picked up in person at 1355 California Ave., Las Cruces, NM 88001. Any prize or prize certificate not claimed within thirty (30) days of winning will be forfeited by the winner.  In the event of forfeiture, the prize may then be awarded to a contest runner-up at the discretion of KGRT-AM.  Prizes will not be mailed.  Winners will not be notified of the time remaining to claim their prizes.  KGRT-AM reserves the right to dispose of unclaimed prizes at the end of the thirty (30) day period. 

KGRT-AM may, due to unavailability of prizes, substitute another prize of equal value.  Proper identification is required (valid driver’s license, passport, state ID, or military ID) to claim a prize.  In very unique situations, designated representatives will be allowed to accept prizes. Written authorization from the winner is required. Letter must include representative's name, ID, social security number, and a photocopy of the winner’s identification.  KGRT-AM will determine what constitutes a unique situation.

KGRT-AM is not responsible for defective prizes.  All prizes are non-transferable, void where prohibited by law. KGRT-AM is not responsible for providing lists of prizewinners.

For contests run on Facebook or other social media sites, entrants and participants agree to release Facebook and all like internet sites from any affiliation with the contest or giveaway.   The promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook.
