The time will be determined by Sponsor’s timekeeping systems.  Sponsor will have the sole discretion in determining the timeliness of any action or inaction related to this Sweepstakes. All times mentioned in these Official Rules are Central Time unless expressly noted otherwise.

By participating, entrants agree to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor. 


TO ENTER: During the Promotion Period, watch Action 3 News Live at 10 (the “Show”) on KMTV Sundays through Thursdays between 10:00-10:30 pm CT. During the Show, the title of the Grammy “Song of the Day” (“Song of the Day”) will be displayed on screen.  The following day (Monday thru Friday), listen to KQCH Channel 94.1 from 7:00 am to 8:00 am and from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm. When you hear the “Song of the Day” (as announced on the Show the prior applicable day), call 402-938-9400 and be caller number 9, as determined solely by Sponsor, to be a Qualifying Winner.   Each Song of the Day will be played twice each applicable day so there will be two Qualifying Winners each applicable day. An individual can be named a Qualifying Winner only once.


Use of any device to automate calling is prohibited. Illegible and incomplete entries are void. Sponsor is not responsible for interrupted, distorted, or incorrect broadcast information; dropped calls; lost, late, misdirected entries; or entries not received for any reason.

For those viewing/listening to the station stream on the Internet or other non-broadcast means: Please be advised that you may be listening to a delayed stream of the broadcast signal, which may vary depending on your computer’s memory capacity and your dial-up connection. For that reason, we strongly recommend that you turn on your radio to the station to participate in this or any other call-in promotion to be sure you are participating in “real time.”  Sponsor assumes no responsibility for contestants not making timely phone calls to the call-in number as a result of the delays in the method of viewing/listening.

WINNER SELECTION:   Qualifying Winners will be the ninth received call after the Song of the Day, as announced on the Show the prior day, is played.  The Grand Prize winner will be selected by random drawing on or about 1/30/2017 from all eligible Qualifying Winners. Decisions of Sponsor are final on all matters. Limit one Qualifying Prize per person/household address. Odds of being named a Qualifying Winner will depend upon the number/order of callers. Odds of winning the Grand Prize once an entrant has been named a Qualifying Winner are 1 in 20.


WINNER NOTIFICATION AND RELEASES: Qualifying Winners will be notified at the time of their call and will be required to provide all requested information, which may include their first name and last name, complete address, city, state, zip code, email address, telephone number, and date of birth. If a potential Qualifying Winner: (a) is not in compliance with these Official Rules, (b) does not meet the eligibility requirements, (c) fails to provide required information; or (d) declines the prize, he or she will be disqualified. On or around January 30, 2017, Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential Grand Prize winner via email. If the potential Grand Prize winner: (a) does not respond after the first attempted contact from Sponsor within 24 hours; (b) is not in compliance with these Official Rules, (c) does not meet the eligibility requirements, (d) declines the prize, or (e) does not sign and return required documents or provide required identification by deadlines established by Sponsor, he or she will be disqualified and the prize awarded to an alternate winner as determined by random draw from the remaining eligible entries. Sponsor will conduct up to two alternate drawings for the Grand Prize, time permitting. Potential winner may be required, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, to complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility & Liability/Publicity Release and a scan or photo of legal ID, and also to have any companion who will participate in the prize activities, if applicable, return the same documentation before claiming the prize or being allowed to participate in any prize activities. All forms must be completed and returned before receipt of any prize if prizes are picked up in person.




Twenty Qualifying Winner Prizes – each Qualifying Winner will receive an official Grammy CD or Music Download, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion (ARV: $12/winner).

Prize winner will not receive cash or any other form of compensation if actual travel costs are less than the prize ARV in these Official Rules. 


Winner and guest must travel 2/11/2017 thru 2/13/2017.  If winner is unable to travel during the dates designated by Sponsor, the prize will be forfeited in its entirety.  If the prize winner is able to participate in the trip during the dates designated by Sponsor but the Show or Event does not or cannot take place as scheduled or at all, for reasons including but not limited to scheduling conflicts, cancellations, postponement, location changes, an event of force majeure, or for any other reason, then the Sponsor reserves the right to award the remainder of the prize with no further obligation to the winner.  Excepting the preceding sentence, no cash alternative or prize substitutions will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize(s) of comparable value if a prize listed or any portion thereof is unavailable for any reason. 


Prizes consist of only those items specifically listed as part of the prize. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any prize with prize of equal or greater value in its sole discretion. No substitution or transfer/assignment of prize by winners permitted. If by reason of printing or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules, a random drawing will be held to award the advertised number of prizes in the relevant category.  All properly claimed prizes will be awarded, but under no circumstances will more than the advertised number of prizes be awarded.   Prizes are awarded “AS IS.”  Grand Prize winner must pick up his or her prize at KMTV, 10714 Mockingbird Drive, Omaha, NE 68127 M-F between 9AM – 5PM no later than February 2, 2017.
