Next Prize: $2,000 – Starts Wednesday, April 7

Fun Things to Do With $1,000

 

What you win:

Up to five (5) prizes will be awarded in this.  Each prize will vary and will be announced prior to airing of the Sound.  The prizes will be in the form of a check made out to the winner as follows:

  • The prize for Sound 1 is $1,000
  • The prize for Sound 2 is $2,000
  • The prize for Sound 3 is $3,000
  • The prize for Sound 4 is $4,000
  • The prize for Sound 5 is $5,000

How to enter:

To participate in the Contest, listen to the Station weekdays during the Contest Dates at approximately 7:00am for the Station to hear the Secret Sound and a clue about the day’s Secret Sound. The Secret Sound will play up to five times a day (at approximately 7:00am, 9:00am, 12:00pm, 3:00pm and 5:00pm ET, each a “cue-to-call”). Additional clues may be given periodically throughout the day. When the Secret Sound is played, the 9th caller will get a chance to correctly guess the Secret Sound to win the prize currently being offered. The Station will be the sole judge in determining whether the designated caller correctly identified the Secret Sound. Each caller will only have one (1) opportunity to correctly guess the Secret Sound.  The caller’s guess must match exactly the Station’s pre-determined answer (Example: "Breath mints in a CD case" is not correct. The pre-determined correct answer is "Tic Tacs in a CD case.").  Once the fifth Secret Sound is guessed correctly, the Contest will end and no more cues-to-call will air.  When a Sound is guessed correctly, the next Sound will begin at 7am on the next weekday. When a Sound is not guessed correctly, no prize will be awarded for that cue-to-call.  There is no limit to the number of times a listener may attempt to call in to win, but a listener may be a prize winner only once.
