 HOW TO PARTICIPATE Contest starts Monday, December 7, 2017 and concludes on Friday, December 22, 2017 ONLY running Monday-Friday. The on air contest occurs approximately 7:35 am 5 days a week, Monday thru Friday. Listen every weekday between 5 pm and 6 pm for the following days prize. Write the daily Day prize name of KMZU’s 12 days of Christmas down word for word, exactly as it is broadcast on air.

KMZU will solicit a contest call to action over the on air broadcast, the first caller will be given the initial opportunity to recite the list back starting from the current prize all the way back to day 1. For example on Day 1 it would be

“ On the first day Christmas in the KMZU neighborhood, KMZU gave to me {prize one}”

An example of Day 2:

“On the second day of Christmas in the KMZU neighborhood, KMZU gave to me {prize 2, prize 1}”

An example of Day 3:

“On the third day of Christmas in the KMZU neighborhood KMZU gave to me { prize 3,prize 2, prize 1}”

This pattern will continue on through all twelve days. Prizes for all 12 days must be repeated aloud word for word, the way that day’s prize was originally broadcast on KMZU 100.7FM and in the correct reverse order of the day given. If the caller adds a word, mispronounces a word or what is stated does not match the 12 days of KMZU Christmas list in any other way, or is deemed incorrect, KMZU will move on to the next caller until one person reads the entire list back correctly. Station will not be responsible for the loss of service call-in line or for a contestant’s failure to reach the call-in line due to malfunction of any network or system, congestion, overload, busy signals, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone call. In the event of interruption of power or telephone service to Station during a call-in period of the Contest and prior to accepting the winning caller, the call-in period affected by the interruption may or may not be replayed at the resumption of service, at Station’s sole discretion. The use of automatic telephone dialing equipment or other software or computer assisted dialing equipment is prohibited and will result in disqualification. No person will be allowed to participate in the Contest on another person’s behalf. Each participating contestant must provide his or her own name and personal information to Contest supervisors. If a contestant uses a false name or presents a false identification, he or she will be immediately disqualified from the Contest and will be ineligible to win any prize, and such conduct may result in legal ramifications.

Example of how prizes will be given each day:

Day 1 will win only day one prize

Day 2 will win day 2 and 1 prizes

Day 3 will win day 3, 2, and 1 prizes

Day 4 will win day 4, 3, 2, and 1 prizes

Day 5 will win day 5, 4, 3, 2, and 15 prizes

And so on till day 12 which will win day 12 thru day 1 prizes

KMZU will not be giving out previous days answers to callers you must listen on air to hear the prize(s).


There will be one mystery prize available during the 12 days of Christmas contest. In order to have a chance to win the mystery prize you MUST be the daily winner of the 12 days of Christmas contest. The Mystery Prize will not be announced on air. In order to win the Mystery Prize you must find and click on “KMZU” in Christmas tree light bulbs on One of the “KMZU” Christmas tree light bulb images on will link to the mystery prize identification phrase. That is the phrase you must use exactly to win the Mystery Prize.

After a listener correctly list the 12 days of Christmas prize(s), Donn will ask the listener if they know the “Mystery Prize” and the listener will have one opportunity to identify the “Mystery Prize”. If they are unable to identify the mystery prize then the next days winner will get an opportunity to win the mystery prize. This will continue on until ONE winner of the 12 days of Christmas correctly identifies the mystery prize. There is only ONE mystery prize so once one of the winners of the 12 days of Christmas correctly identifies the prize, the prize will no longer be available.

For example: If the Day 1 winner of the 12 days of Christmas contest does not correctly identify the mystery prize then the Day 2 winner of the 12 days of Christmas contest gets an opportunity to identify the mystery prize. If they correctly identify the mystery prize then they will win the prizes for that day as well as the mystery prize.
