Contest Rules

How to Enter Contests:

A listener may enter any daily on-air contest by calling 1-812-333-2665 when the announcer asks for a specific numbered caller, or a specified contest trigger airs. That caller will then participate in the contest and win prizes for either the correct answer, or for being the designated numbered caller. Morning contests include but are not limited to “The WGCL Mind Quiz.”

Eligibility Restrictions:

Anyone 18 year of age or older may enter except employees of Sarkes Tarzian Inc., participating sponsors, or other radio stations in the Indianapolis or Bloomington Metro areas and their respective families.  Family is defined as parents, children, spouses, in-laws, and people in spouse-like relationships, siblings, including those in step and half relations where living in the same household. Also, those who have been employed by Sarkes Tarzian Inc. in the past 90 days are also ineligible.

You may only win a contest on WGCL or once every 30 days.

*During the “WGCL Mind Quiz” contest, if the contestant is able to correctly answer the day’s trivia question, they’ll be a winner and receive the designated prizes.


Prizes vary from week to week.  The estimated value of the prize package awarded for each contest is approximately $25.00-$250.00.  Prizes are furnished to WGCL in exchange for promotional consideration.

Prize redemption will vary. Concert ticket prizes may be redeemed at will-call at the applicable concert venue (requiring photo identification), or will be mailed. WGCL is not responsible for misdelivered, non-delivered or damaged prizes.

All winners redeeming a prize in person must bring valid photo identification when claiming their prize.  All prizes must be claimed within thirty (30) days of winning. The winner must claim their prize at the WGCL offices, 120 W. 7th Street Bloomington, IN 47404 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 9:00am-5:00pm.  If the prize is not claimed within the allotted time, it will be forfeited by the winner and will become the property of WGCL.  All winners must sign a receipt of prize form and are solely responsible for reporting and paying all taxes on prizes, if applicable.

Contest prizes are not transferable. Prizes may not be substituted for or redeemed for cash, except that WGCL may, at its sole discretion, substitute prizes or cash of comparable value.

Selection of Winners:

Decisions of station management with respect to the contest are final. Based on the specific contest, winners are selected by being the designated caller, or the caller correctly answering the contest’s trivia question(s).
