Keyword to Cash Contest Rules

The KISM Keyword To Cash begins April 1st and goes through May 3rd. Listen weekdays 6am-3pm, up to twice a day, for the $1,000 text word.  When you hear it you will have 10 minutes to text the correctly spelled word to 77000.  This text code is for United States carriers only.  Message and data rates may apply. One text per play.  Text messages are sent through a third party provider; KISM does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, the delivery or timeliness of any text message entry.

KISM will conduct this contest concurrently and simultaneously with radio stations affiliated with KISM, and in various states.  Listeners of KISM will, therefore, be competing with listeners of other radio stations to win the same prize. A station will be chosen at random from all the participating radio stations. Then a text received by that station will be chosen at random.  The cell phone number from the chosen text will be called and the reaction recorded for broadcast.  If we are unable to speak with the contestant who sent the text within 5 minutes from the time we dial that contestant’s cell number, then the $1,000 prize will be forfeited and another random text will be chosen with the same procedure until a winner is determined. Prize will be available within 10 business days. Be safe… Don’t text and drive
KISM contests are open to all eligible in Washington state 18 or older have not won anything on KISM in the past 30 days or any prize valued at $600 or more in the past 6 months. Only one winner per household is permitted within 30 days after a household has a winner. Any prize awarded to an ineligible listener will be deemed null and void, and an alternate eligible winner may be named.
Employees of KISM, Cascade Radio Group, and its ultimate parent company, Saga Communications, Inc., their advertising agencies, affiliates, contest sponsors, employees and immediate families of each, and employees of all media of mass communication within a one hundred mile radius of the KISM main studio are not eligible to win any contest.
