Major Contest Rules
The Point contests are open to all Point listeners who reside in New England or New York and are at least 18 years of age. Employees of The Point, its licensee, its corporate parent Northeast Broadcasting, participating sponsors/promotional partners, affiliated advertising agencies, other radio stations in the Vermont Area and members of their immediate families are ineligible to participate or win.
Listeners are eligible to win a Point contest once every thirty days (unless the prize is judged by The Point to be insignificant) and a prize valued at $600 or more once every six months. Only one winner per household is permitted in any contest.
Contestants may be required to sign a release form waiving The Point of any liability for injury or death caused during the contest or by use of the prize. Contestants may be required to present a valid ID or driver¹s license.
All prizes should be picked-up at the office of The Point during normal office hours (Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm, excluding Holidays) at The Point, 169 River St., Montpelier, VT, 05602. Winners should not pick-up prizes until notified by a Point representative. The winner will forfeit any prize not claimed within 30 days of winning or by time designated to each contest. If the winner requests the prize be mailed, they must complete and sign the prize release form and send The Point a self-addressed stamped envelope and assume all risks of its arrival. The Point is not responsible for the safe arrival of a prize or prize certificate.
Contest prizes are not transferable. Prizes may not be substituted for or redeemed for cash. The Point reserves the right to substitute a prize or prizes of equivalent or greater value.
Decisions of The Point station management with respect to contests are final.

By participating in the contest, the winner or winners agree to have their name, voice, or likeness used in any broadcasting or advertising material relating to this contest without additional financial or other compensation, and to sign a publicity release prior to acceptance of the prize.
Contest winners (and their travel companions, if any) will be required to sign a liability release prior to acceptance of any prize valued at $600 or greater or which prize includes the provision of transportation, whether or not such transportation is provided by The Point. Pursuant to the liability release, the winners will agree to hold The Point, its corporate licensee, its parent company Northeast Broadcasting Corporation, affiliated companies and the officers, shareholders, directors, employees, agents and representatives of each of them harmless against any and all claims or liability arising directly or indirectly from the prize or contest.
The Point reserves the right to make changes in the rules of the contest, including the substitution of a prize of equivalent value, which will become effective upon announcement.
