KMHS General Contest Rules



These are the general rules governing all contests aired on KMHS-AM and/or KMHS-FM and on the kmhsonline.com website and KMHS social media platforms. In the following rules, “KMHS” means Coos Bay Public Schools, which owns KMHS-AM and KMHS-FM radio:

  2. Some KMHS contests will have specific rules that may amend these eligibility values, and these rules will be aired on KMHS during said contest. Only one winner per household, regardless of relationship, per 30 days is allowed. Any prize awarded to an ineligible listener (any individual who is found not to meet the minimum stated eligibility criteria) will be deemed null and void, and an alternate eligible winner may be named.
  3. Your participation (over the phone, internet, in person, email, written letter) with KMHS is your grant of permission for station(s) to use your voice, name, image and likeness for promotional, broadcast or internet purposes related to the KMHS.

KMHS shall not be liable for any claim by any winner for damages incidental thereto.
  7. All KMHS contests are open to all eligible U.S. residents 13 or over (unless otherwise specified).
