WATCH VIRGINIA TODAY (11/7/16 – 11/18/16)

 

  1. Once you have submitted your entry form, watch Virginia Today (the “Show”) on week days at 6:10 a.m. ET starting on November 7, 2016 and ending on November 18, 2016 (the “Game Period”). Each week day during the Game Period, the name of one (1) person whose entry was randomly selected will be announced during the Show. That entrant will have ten (10) minutes to call the telephone number indicated. Subject to verification of eligibility, if he/she calls within the stated time period, he/she will be declared a Daily Prize winner. If not, the name of another entrant will be announced and the ten (10) minute call back process will be repeated. If a potential Daily Prize winner is not confirmed after a total of two (2) attempts, no further names will be announced during that Daily Game and that prize will be treated as an “Unawarded Prize” (see “Second Chance Drawing” below).

 

  1. In the event that fewer than ten (10) calls are received during any Daily Game, WSLS-TV reserves the right to replay that opportunity on a different day or time or to declare the last caller to be the Daily Prize winner. All dates and times are subject to change or cancellation in the event of technical issues or human error affecting the broadcast of any Daily Game, or in the event of breaking news or national or local emergency or condition that is of greater public importance, in WSLS-TV’s sole discretion, than the timely execution of the Promotion or timely broadcast of the Show. If any of the foregoing result in the non-broadcast of the Daily Game during the particular broadcast time, the corresponding prize will be treated as an Unawarded Prize.

 

  1. Proof of calling is not proof of receipt by WSLS-TV. Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed, script, macro, or any other automated means or methods or agents to enter or play are prohibited and may result in disqualification. No group submissions will be accepted. Each potential Daily Prize winner may be required to provide valid daytime telephone number or e-mail address. WSLS-TV is not responsible for voice or electronic communications that are not completed as a result of any form of call blocking of any kind or inability to leave a voice message or passive or as to e-mail, active filtering of any kind. In the event of a dispute as to the identity or eligibility of a Daily Prize winner based on a telephone number, the call will be deemed made by the “Authorized Account Holder” of the telephone number provided at the time of the call. The Authorized Account Holder is the natural person who is assigned to the telephone number by the relevant telecommunications provider.

 

  1. Each Daily Prize winner may be verified over the telephone and may be required to present valid photo identification, signed affidavit or declaration of eligibility, liability release, publicity release (where legal), tax forms and/or other legal documents to WSLS-TV no later than ten (10) days after initial call. WSLS-TV in its sole discretion may allow for transmission of verification documents via fax or e-mail.

 

Second Chance DRAWING

 

  1. After the conclusion of the Daily Games, WSLS-TV will determine the number of Unawarded Prizes (if any) and offer them during a Second Chance Drawing (if necessary) no later than November 25, 2016. During the Second Chance Drawing, WSLS-TV will select the number of names equal to the number of Unawarded Prizes at random from all timely and properly submitted non-winning entries. Subject to verification of eligibility, the persons whose names are so drawn will be declared the Second Chance winners of the Unawarded Prizes.

 

  1. WSLS-TV will contact each potential Second Chance winner using the information provided on his/her entry form. Each potential Second Chance winner must respond to WSLS-TV within forty-eight (48) hours initial notification and may be required to present valid photo identification, signed affidavit or declaration of eligibility, liability release, publicity release (where legal), tax forms and/or other legal documents to WSLS-TV no later than ten (10) days after initial notification. WSLS-TV in its sole discretion may allow for transmission of verification documents via fax or e-mail.

 

  1. In the event that any potential Second Chance winner (a) cannot be contacted directly by, or does not respond to, WSLS-TV within forty-eight (48) hours of initial attempted notification, (b) fails to satisfy any eligibility or verification requirement herein, (c) declines to accept the prize, (d) or is otherwise determined to be ineligible, WSLS-TV in its discretion may disqualify that individual and an alternate winner will be chosen by random drawing as soon as reasonably practicable after such disqualification. Alternate winners are subject to all eligibility requirements and restrictions of these Official Rules. WSLS-TV will conduct up to two (2) alternate winner drawings for any prize. If WSLS-TV cannot verify a winner for a particular prize after two (2) alternate winner drawings, no further drawings will be held for that prize and that prize will not be awarded.

 

  1. All verified winners must pick up their prizes at WSLS-TV’s studios at 401 Third Street S.W., Roanoke, Virginia, during regular business hours within thirty (30) days of initial call or notification as applicable.
