Contest Rules

Energy Week Sept. 27-Oct. 1. Learn more and register for campus events:

The following rules apply to all contests (“Contests”) sponsored by WKNC-FM (“Station”), broadcast on the air at 88.1 FM HD-1/HD-2 and/or promoted online via or official Station social media accounts. Due to delays in Station’s online stream, participants should not rely on streamed broadcasts in order to participate. By participating in any Station Contest, participants agree to abide by these rules as published.


Prizes are provided to Station in exchange for promotional consideration and vary from week to week. Prize redemption will vary. Concert ticket prizes may be redeemed either at will-call at the applicable concert venue (requiring photo identification) or can be picked up at the Station. Redemption will be indicated at the time the prize is won. Tickets and physical prizes can be mailed domestically at the winner’s request, but Station is not responsible for mis-delivered, non-delivered or damaged prizes.

All winners redeeming a prize in person must bring valid photo identification when claiming their prize. All non-ticket prizes must be claimed within ninety (90) days of winning. The winner must claim their prize at the Station office, 343 Witherspoon Student Center, 2810 Cates Avenue, Raleigh, NC 27606 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. except on days NC State University and/or Witherspoon Student Center is closed.

If any non-ticket prize is not claimed within 90 days or if any ticketed prize by 5 p.m. the day of the event, it will be forfeited by the winner and will become the property of the Station. Winners are solely responsible for reporting and paying all taxes on prizes, if applicable. Value of the prize is its Fair Market Value, which is defined by the IRS in IRS Publication 561. Prizes are not transferable. Prizes may not be substituted for or redeemed for cash, except that Station may, at its sole discretion, substitute prizes of comparable value.


  • No purchase or donation is necessary to enter.
  • Participants cannot win more than one pair of tickets to the same event during the same contest period.
  • Should an event be canceled or rescheduled for any reason, the contest will be considered void and no substitute prize will be awarded. Station is not responsible for any event cancelation or rescheduling.
  • Contest is void where prohibited.
