Prize. There will be two prizes awarded daily for each day of the giveaway.  The prize for this giveaway will be a pair of tickets (value to be determined by the station) to the South Carolina Education Lottery Vanna White Visit at the Beaufort (SC) Shrimp Festival.  The date of use (scheduled for October 1, 2011) will be determined by the station.  The station may, due to unavailability of prizes awarded, substitute another prize of equal value, for that which was originally won.

Determination of Winner.  Two daily winners will be determined in the following way:
All the qualified submissions for the day will be placed into a drawing after the 7:30 p.m. close of the contest for that day.  Two winners will be randomly drawn for that day and declared the winners.  If for some reason the winner(s) is/are ineligible or the drawing rendered useless as determined by the station, the station has the right to cancel the contest for that day or hold a substitute drawing for that day’s winner.

Other Rules.  The station and its sponsors are not responsible for any entries which are lost, late, damaged, misdirected, failure of transmission, power failure, technical problems, or otherwise made unusable through electronic or Internet communication.

Employees of the station, its advertising agencies, their affiliates, representatives, and their families are ineligible to enter/win any contest stated on or provided by the station.

No prizes awarded by the station will be mailed to the recipients.  Rather, recipients must claim the prize in person at the station’s business office at 5807 Shakespeare Road, Columbia, SC 29223 during regular office hours.  The prize may only be claimed upon proper documentation of identification through photo I.D. 

Winners must provide the station with his or her social security number, complete a W-9, and must sign an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Release and Waiver from all liability against the station, its sponsors, employees, and affiliated companies for any injury or loss which may occur from the contestant’s participation in the contest or from use of any prize which is awarded.
