  1. How to Enter to become a Qualifier: There are four (4) ways to become a qualifier and be entered into the Grand Prize random drawing which will occur on the Event Date:

 

  • Keyword Method: To enter via this method of entry, visit any participating retail locations, find the keyword on the in-store Sweepstakes signage (“Keyword”) during the Keyword Entry Period. Then, after verifying that you are of legal drinking age, text the Keyword [SUMMER] to 60123. Upon texting the correct Keyword, you will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Keyword random drawing. Text message rates MAY apply. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting a mobile text entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the mobile number is registered who in turn must be eligible for the Sweepstakes. The entrant may be required to provide evidence that the entrant is the authorized account holder of the mobile number associated with the winning entry and will be required to complete an affidavit and release. OR to enter the Keyword without sending a text message, send an email to DrivePromotions@wdrv.com with the following information in the body of the email: First and Last Name, Date of Birth, Email Address, Phone number, and the correct Keyword (SUMMER), and in the Subject line of the email, put “97 Days of Summer Sweepstakes.” In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an email entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the email is registered who in turn must be eligible for the Sweepstakes. The entrant may be required to provide evidence that the entrant is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the winning entry and will be required to complete an affidavit and release. Upon receipt of the email with the correct keyword, you will receive one (1) entry into the random drawing provided that the email is in full compliance with these Official Rules. All Keyword entries must be received by11:59:59 PM CT on August 23, 2019 or will be disqualified.

 

How Keyword Qualifiers Are Chosen: Thirty (30) Qualifiers will be selected via a random drawing, to be held on or about August 26, 2019 by Sponsor from among all eligible Keyword entries received during the Keyword Entry Period. The potential Qualifiers will be notified by text message, telephone or email on the day of the random drawing. Sponsor will make up to two (2) attempts to reach the potential Qualifier. If Sponsor is unable to reach the potential Qualifier after two (2) attempts, that potential Qualifier will forfeit his/her right to be a Qualifier and to possibly be included in the Grand Prize random drawing, and an alternate winner may be randomly selected, time permitting, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Odds of becoming a Keyword Qualifier depends on the number of eligible Keyword entries received during the Keyword Entry Period. Sponsor and Promotional Participant are not responsible for text message notifications that are undeliverable, email notifications that are undeliverable or not received, or voicemail messages not received regardless of cause.

 

  • Online/On-Air Method: To enter via the Online/On-air method of entry, during the Online/On-Air Entry Period, visit wdrv.com, find the “97 Days of Summer” contest tab, and, complete and submit the online entry form (including verifying that you are or legal drinking age) by 11:00:00 AM CT that weekday to receive one (1) entry into that weekday’s Online/On-Air random drawing.  Then, Sponsor will conduct a random drawing‡ each weekday during the Online/On-Air Entry Period and will select one (1) potential Qualifier, whose name will be read on-air at approximately 3:10:00 p.m. CT on the day of the random drawing. The potential Qualifiers will also be notified by telephone on the day of the random drawing between 11:01:00 AM -3:00:00 PM CT and that potential Qualifier must answer his/her phone to be deemed a Qualifier, to possibly be included in the Grand Prize random drawing and to receive a First Prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules). For the avoidance of doubt, messages will NOT be left on the potential Qualifier’s phone or with a third party answering potential Qualifier’s phone. In the event Sponsor is not able to contact any potential Qualifier when the Sponsor calls the potential Qualifier for any reason, that person forfeits his/her right to be a Qualifier and to possibly be included in the Grand Prize random drawing and to receive a First Prize, and an alternate may be selected, time permitting. Odds of becoming a Qualifier via the Online/On-Air method of entry (and receiving a First Prize) depends on the number of eligible Online/On-Air entries received during a given weekday of the Online/On-Air Entry Period. {‡Non-winning eligible entries from a given weekday’s random drawing will be retained for subsequent weekdays’ random drawing(s).} Sponsor and Promotional Participant are not responsible for attempted telephone calls which are not received regardless of cause.

NEED PUBLIC PROFILE: If entering via the Social Media method of entry, entrants must adjust their Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account settings to allow for receipt of messages from Sponsor.  For this purpose, entrants will have to set their Instagram or Twitter account settings to ‘Public’, and take any further necessary steps to ensure receipt of any communication from Sponsor. It is solely entrant’s burden to take any steps necessary to adjust their Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account settings so that messages can be sent by Sponsor.  An Entrant’s non-receipt of a message from Sponsor for any reason, including failure on behalf of entrant to adjust Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account settings, shall be entrant’s, and not Sponsor’s (or Promotional Participant’s) fault.  Similarly, Sponsor and Promotional Participant shall not be held liable if they are not able to view an entrant’s entry for any reason, including the failure on behalf of entrant to adjust their Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account settings accordingly. By entering this Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees that the Sponsor has the right to contact the entrant by direct Message via entrant’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter or email accounts provided to administer and fulfill this Sweepstakes.

(The content of the Photo will NOT be taken into account in the selection of Qualifiers via the Social Media method of entry, provided that such content is in compliance with these Official Rules.) The potential Qualifiers will be notified by direct message in the social media channel the entrant used to enter, on the day of the random drawing. Sponsor will make up to two (2) attempts to reach the potential Qualifier. If Sponsor is unable to reach the potential Qualifier after two (2) attempts, that potential Qualifier will forfeit his/her right to be a Qualifier and possibly be included in the Grand Prize random drawing, and an alternate winner may be randomly selected, time permitting, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person making a post/tweet, the Social Media entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the email which is associated with the social media account used to make the post/tweet is registered who in turn must be eligible for the Sweepstakes. The entrant may be required to provide evidence that the entrant is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the winning entry and will be required to complete an affidavit and a release. Odds of becoming the Social Media Qualifier depends on the number of eligible Social Media entries received during the Social Media Entry Period. Sponsor and Promotional Participant are not responsible for direct message notifications that are undeliverable or not received regardless of cause.

 

Scavenger Hunt Method: To enter via the Scavenger Hunt method of entry, visit WDRV The Drive’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages during the Scavenger Hunt Entry Period to find clues. Then, search for the secret Lemon Stress Balls planted throughout the Chicago metropolitan area. Once you find one of the (97) secret Lemon Stress Balls, find the keyword on the coaster and, after verifying that you are of legal drinking age, text the Coaster Keyword to 60123, or email the Coaster Keyword, along with your First and Last Name, Date of Birth, Email Address, Phone number to DrivePromotions@wdrv.com, and in the Subject line of the email, put “Scavenger Hunt Keyword.” Upon texting or emailing the correct Coaster Keyword, you will be a Qualifier, and will also receive a Prize Pack (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules). AT ALL TIMES, PERSONS MUST ACT IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL OR OTHER LAWS AND REGULATIONS AS WELL AS RESPECTING THE PROPERTY AND PERSONAL RIGHTS OF OTHER INDIVIDUALS WHEN PARTICIPATING IN THE SCAVENGER HUNT. Text message rates MAY apply. Once a given correct Coaster Keyword has been submitted, status as a Qualifier and receipt of a Prize Pack corresponding to such Coaster Keyword will no longer be available (even if the person submitting that correct Coaster Keyword is later determined to be ineligible for the Sweepstakes or in violation of these Official Rules.) Any dispute as to which person was the first to submit a given correct Coaster Keyword shall be resolved by Sponsor in its sole discretion. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person who submitted a correct Coaster Keyword via text message, status as a Qualifier and receipt of a Prize Pack corresponding to such Coaster Keyword (subject to verification) will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the mobile number is registered who in turn must be eligible for the Sweepstakes. Such person may be required to provide evidence that he/she is the authorized account holder of the mobile number associated with the submission of the correct Coaster Keyword and will be required to complete an affidavit and a release. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person who submitted a correct Coaster Keyword via email, status as a Qualifier and receipt of a Prize Pack corresponding to such Coaster Keyword (subject to verification) will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the email is registered who in turn must be eligible for the Sweepstakes. The entrant may be required to provide evidence that he/she is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the submission of the correct Coaster Keyword and will be required to complete an affidavit and a release. All Coaster Keywords must be received by 11:59:59 PM CT on August 23, 2019; if submitted after such deadline, the Coaster Keyword will not result in one’s selection as a Qualifier and receipt of a Prize Pack even if the Coaster Keyword is correct. IF UNCLAIMED OR FORFEITED, STATUS AS A QUALIFIER VIA THE SCAVENGER HUNT METHOD/RECEIPT OF PRIZE PACK WILL NOT BE AWARDED AND ANY SUCH UNAWARDED PRIZE PACKS REMAIN THE PROPERTY OF SPONSOR. Odds of becoming a Qualifier via the Scavenger Hunt method of entry (and receiving a Prize Pack) depend upon a given eligible person’s ability to decipher the clues and find a Lemon Stress Ball as compared to other eligible persons.

 

Only persons selected as a Qualifier via the Online/On-Air Method or the Scavenger Hunt Method will definitely receive a prize if verified as eligible under these Official Rules. If a person is selected as a Qualifier via the Keyword Method or the Social Media Method, he/she is not guaranteed to receive a prize if verified as eligible under these Official Rules.

 

Limit one (1) selection as a Qualifier per person during the entire Sweepstakes Period; in addition, a given person may only win a First Prize or a Prize Pack in the Sweepstakes. Any attempt by any listener to become a Qualifier more than once by using multiple/different identities, or any other methods, may disqualify that person from winning any prize and/or being selected as a Qualifier, at the sole discretion of Sponsor.  Sponsor and Promotional Participant are not responsible for email notifications that are undeliverable or voicemail messages not received regardless of cause.

 

  1. How to Win the Grand Prize: In order to be eligible to win the Grand Prize, each Qualifier must attend a private function (“Event”) from 6:00 PM CT until 8:00 PM CT on Friday, August 30, 2019 in Merrionette Park, IL. Sponsor will advise Qualifiers of specific Event location after verification of eligibility. Then some time during the Event, Sponsor will randomly draw one (1) Qualifier’s name to be the Grand Prize winner. The Grand Prize winner’s name will be announced at the Event. QUALIFIER MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN UNLESS HE/SHE RESIDES OUTSIDE OF THE CHICAGO METROPOLITAN AREA. (Whether a Qualifier resides outside of the Chicago metropolitan area will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. If Sponsor determines that a Qualifier resides outside of the Chicago metropolitan area, Sponsor will allow such Qualifier to nominate a third party [who must be 21 years of age or older] to attend the Event in his/her place. Such third party will serve solely as the approved proxy of the Qualifier in question and the third party shall have no independent rights to the Grand Prize should the Qualifier be selected and verified as the Grand Prize winner. In all other cases, however, a third party CANNOT serve as the proxy for a Qualifier at the Event.) The Qualifier selected as the Grand Prize winner (or the approved proxy for a Qualifier) must come forward at the Event within the designated time period as well as furnishing acceptable identification (as defined in Section 6 below) and, if an approved proxy for a Qualifier, the third party in question must furnish acceptable proof of his/her status as an approved proxy. In the event the potential Grand Prize winner (or approved proxy for potential Grand Prize winner) is not present at the Event when his/her (i.e., Qualifier’s) name is announced or fails to timely provide acceptable identification/proof for any reason as determined by Sponsor representatives conducting the Event in their sole discretion, such Qualifier forfeits his/her right to the Grand Prize, and an alternate winner will be selected from among all remaining Qualifiers (who are either present at the Event personally or via approved proxy). This process will continue until the selection and announcement of a Qualifier who IS present at the Event (either him/herself personally or via approved proxy), comes forward within the designated period and presents acceptable identification. Odds of a Qualifier who is present at the Event (either him/herself personally or via approved proxy) winning the Grand Prize are approximately 1:200 but depend on the number of verified Qualifiers who actually attend the Event (either him/herself personally or via approved proxy).
