Official Contest Rules – A To Z Secret Song Contest
1. How to Enter the Contest:
a. The “A To Z Secret Song” contest will begin on Monday, February 20, 2012 at 7:00am EST and end on Friday, March 2, 2012 at approximately 6:00pm EST.

When a new letter begins, WTTS will announce on the air one “secret song” for that particular letter of the alphabet. All 26 “secret songs” will be listed in the VIP Room at www.wttsfm.com. When each letter’s “secret song” is played on WTTS during the contest hours, call 1-800-923-WTTS (9887).

Grand prize includes two tickets to the concert, roundtrip airfare for two from Indianapolis to Los Angeles, plus accommodations for two for two nights in Los Angeles.

The ninth caller at the beginning of the song at 1-800-923-WTTS will win the “qualifying prize” (subject to eligibility) and will be eligible to win the Grand Prize.
d. The Grand Prize winner will be selected from among all eligible ticket winners by a random drawing to be conducted in the WTTS offices on March 9, 2012 at 12pm EST. Ticket winners do not need to be present for the drawing for the Grand Prize. The Grand Prize does not include ground transportation to or from the airport, or any expenses incurred by the winner and the winner’s guest or traveling companion beyond the hotel room occupancy charge and applicable taxes; all such other expenses are solely the responsibility of the winner and/or the winner’s guest to traveling companion.
e. If a winner cannot be contacted within 48 hours after the contest episode in which that person was selected, an alternate winner will be selected. At each contest episode, WTTS will take the name of the 10th caller, who will be eligible to be a ticket winner if the ninth caller at that episode is ineligible or otherwise forfeits the prize; alternates will be selected for each episode, and will be eligible to win in the order in which they are selected for that episode. An alternate winner may continue to be eligible to win in subsequent episodes, but if an alternate is the ninth caller in a later episode, that person will no longer be eligible as an alternate. If the Grand Prize winner is disqualified, another random drawing will be held among the other twenty-five winners and the alternate, provided there is time to make new arrangements for air travel and hotel accommodations; if new arrangements cannot be made as to either portion of the Grand Prize will not, that portion of the Grand Prize will be forfeited and no alternate will be selected.
