b.            Promotion participants can win only one Qualifier (defined below) prize and one Grand Prize in the Promotion and will be deemed ineligible if they have won another prize from Star 102.1 or any other Scripps Media station, including WKHT, WCYQ, or WNOX within the 60 days prior to the start of the Promotion Period.  Only one winner per family related by blood or marriage and household address will be permitted. 


c.             Entrants are required to provide truthful information, and STAR 102.1 will reject and delete any entry that it discovers to be false or fraudulent.  STAR 102.1 will disqualify any entry from individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements, and will also delete any entry knowingly received from persons under the age of 13 in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and as otherwise required by law. All decisions of Promoter’s management with respect to the Promotion are final. By entering, you agree to these Official Rules and to the decisions of Promoter’s management.




You may enter the Promotion as follows:  during the 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. ET hours weekdays during the Promotion Period, listen to Star 102.1 for the cue to call. When you hear the cue to call, call 865-656-STAR.  The 10th caller will instantly win a $102 prize, subject to verification, and be a qualifier (“Qualifier”) for that week’s finale giveaway of a $1,021 shopping spree with a Star 102.1 on-air talent (the “Shopping Spree”).  At the time of their winning call, entrant must provide all requested information, including, his or her first name and last name, complete address, city, state, zip code, email address, telephone number, and date of birth.  Use of any device to automate entry is prohibited.  Proof of submission of an entry will not be deemed proof of receipt by Promoter. The Station’s telephone system is the official time keeping device for the Promotion.  Qualifiers may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release prior to receipt of prize.  (TN residents not required to complete publicity release.) 




  1. Each week during the Promotion Period, Sponsor will choose a Grand Prize winner in a random drawing from among eligible Qualifiers for that week. The odds of winning a Grand Prize are up to one in 20. Grand Prize winner name will be announced around 5:30 pm ET on Friday, and the potential winner will have 10 minutes and 21 seconds to call back to claim their Grand Prize.  If potential winner does not call back within the allotted time, the potential winner will forfeit the prize, and a second name will be called and given 10 minutes 21 seconds to claim the prize. If the second person doesn’t call back within the allotted time, a third name will be called.  If the third person doesn’t call back within the allotted time, the prize will not be awarded.       


b.            Promoter will attempt to notify the Grand Prize winner by telephone or email by Monday following their winning call on Friday to set up their shopping spree time. Winner must respond within 48 hours of initial notification attempt, and also schedule the Shopping Spree within 10 days. Winner must execute and return any required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release prior to receipt of prize.  (TN residents not required to complete publicity release.) If potential winner is not in compliance with these Official Rules (including eligibility requirements), does not respond within 48 hours of initial notification attempt, is unable or unwilling to participate in the Shopping Spree within 10 days of winner notification, fails to complete, sign and return the required affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release or provide required identification within the required time period, cannot travel on the dates specified below, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, potential winner will be disqualified and will forfeit the prize. Promoter will select an alternate prize winner by random drawing from remaining eligible Qualifiers. Promoter will conduct up to two alternate drawings, time permitting.


c.             It is the responsibility of the Grand Prize winners to attend their Shopping Spree event in person, they cannot appoint an advocate to shop for them, and they must be available within the confines of the time Star 102.1 on-air personalities are available to accompany them, which will be on a per winner basis.

Promoter’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules will not constitute a waiver of this provision.  If there is any conflict between any term of these Official Rules and any of the entry or marketing materials used in connection with the Sweepstakes, the terms of the Official Rules will govern.
