Contest Rules

Contest/Sweepstakes Rules

Throughout the Aspen Public Radio pledge drives/campaigns and at other times during the year, Aspen Public Radio may hold giveaways and opportunities. Evergreen Members are automatically entered into all drawings. When you enter any drawings you will be added to the Aspen Public Radio mailing list. One entry per family allowed.

1. No pledge is necessary to enter. To enter into the early bird prize as well as the grand prize drawing without making a pledge, please mail in a postcard with your name, address and phone number to Aspen Public Radio, 110 E. Hallam St., Suite 134, Aspen, CO 81611. Aspen Public Radio will randomly draw a winner and two alternates from all entries for each specific contest. If the prize is not claimed by the winner nor the two alternates, Aspen Public Radio will choose what to do with the prize within the confines of the law. The drawings will be conducted immediately following the conclusion of the pledge drive. The contest winner is not decided until the prize has been accepted. 

2. Entries will only be accepted as announced on air, online or via email. Each drawing has a defined period of time for entry. For phone calls, entries are time-stamped with the time the call is answered by an Aspen Public Radio representative.

5. In the event a prize is refused or is unclaimed for five days, a new name will be drawn and the new winner contacted. If after three winners, the prize is still unclainmed, the prize will revert back to Aspen Public Radio to use at a later time or in a new manner.

6. Prizes valued at over $600 will be reported as taxable income, in accordance with IRS regulations.
