Contest Details

What do I need to provide in order to win?
Information required will be included in contest details. Most require name, address, email address and phone number. Incomplete entries will not be eligible to win. No purchase is necessary to enter WHYY contests and sweepstakes.

How many entries are permitted per person?
One entry per household is allowed, unless otherwise stated.

How many total entries will be allowed? What are the odds of winning?
The odds of winning one or more prizes will depend on the number of entrants. We will not set a limit on the total number of entries allowed.

How will the winner be selected?
The winner(s) will be selected by random by the WHYY employee responsible for administering the contest.

How will the winner be notified?
WHYY will make reasonable efforts to notify the winner(s) using the information provided on the winning entry form. If the prize must be physically mailed and is returned due to an undeliverable mailing address, WHYY may, at its option, award another person the prize. WHYY will not award a prize if the winner(s) (a) were ineligible to participate, (b) provided materially false or misleading information to WHYY, or (c) if participating or receiving a prize is prohibited with respect to such person pursuant to these Rules or Applicable Law.

Why are you collecting so much personal information? Isn’t email address enough?
We want to make sure we can get in touch with the winner(s).

Who is eligible to enter?
To be eligible to enter, you must (a) be at least 18 years old at the time of entry, (b) be a U.S. resident physically residing in the United States or District of Columbia, and (c) not be precluded by Applicable Law from holding participating. WHYY employees, board members and their households may not enter and are not eligible to win a prize.
