1A. How to Win:
• Starting October 1st, 2018 through November 17th, 2018 KBEA will give listeners an opportunity to text in and qualify to win a late model used vehicle from Weber Auto Group in Silvis. One hundred (100) keys will be given away to qualifiers between the above dates.
• Ninety-Nine (99) keys will not start the vehicle. One (1) key will start the vehicle. KBEA-FM staff will test all keys prior to the contest to ensure only one (1) key starts the vehicle. The qualifier with the key that starts the vehicle will be the winner of the vehicle. The key must start the vehicle's engine to be considered the winner.
• KBEA will give a code word out each weekday at approximately 1:15PM CT and 4:15PM CT. Listeners will be instructed to text the code word to the “B-100 Hope’s Bridal and Prom text line” at 563-326-2100. One qualifier will be chosen at random from all entries with the correct code word. A total of sixty (60) qualifiers will be chosen using this method during the weekdays between October 1st 2018 and November 17th 2018. KBEA will also give out a code word every weekend between October 1st and November 9th. A total of ten (10) qualifiers will be chosen using this method on the weekends.

• Qualifiers may win a maximum of one (1) key to try and start the car. Once a person is a key winner they cannot acquire more keys/chances to start the vehicle.
• Qualifiers must attend our car giveaway remote at Weber Auto Group in Silvis on Saturday November 17, 2018. Qualifiers must be in attendance and checked in with KBEA-FM personnel by 10:45 AM CST. Failure to check in by the appointed time will result in the forfeiture of their qualification and they will have to enter as a last minute qualifier.
• At check in, qualifiers will be asked to randomly pull a number out of a box. Numbers will be one (1) to one hundred (100). This will be the order in which each person will come up, select a key blindly from the box of keys, and attempt to start the vehicle's engine. The person with number one will go first. The person with 100 will go last.
• KBEA-FM will choose “last chance” qualifiers during the car giveaway remote at Weber Auto Group. Listeners can qualify for this by registering for this random drawing at the event. Those who are already holding a key are ineligible to qualify again. The number of qualifiers chosen will be determined by the number of qualifiers who chose to forfeit their key by not showing up and checking in on time at the event.
• At 11:15 AM CST, we will start calling key qualifiers in groups of 10 to line up. Numbers 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 71-80, 81-90, 91-100. One by one in numerical order starting with the number 1 each person will randomly and blindly select a key from our box or bowl. They will walk up to the car and attempt to start it. If the key does not start the vehicle's engine, they do not win the car and the next person will randomly and blindly select a key from the box or bowl and will attempt to start the car. This will continue until one qualifier's key starts the vehicle. The qualifier who posses the key that start's the vehicle win's the car.
• In the event no key starts the vehicle, each qualifier will write their name on an entry blank and a random drawing will be conducted to determine which qualifier wins the vehicle.
