Back to School Battle Rules


Here are the official rules for the Coast 93.1 Back to School Battle Contest…

Starting on Monday, August 18th, 2014 through Friday, August 29th, 2014… each weekday morning at 6:40am Blake and Eva will play the “Back to School Battle”. And encourage listeners to be the first caller, 792-6278, to be a contestant. August 18th the first two callers will be chosen to participate.

Two contestants, parents with school age kids (age 5-18), will compete to answer 5 questions taken from a school text book, the same questions for each contestant; they will not be able to hear one another’s answers.

The contestant with the most correct answers receives a $100 Visa Gift Card courtesy of Republic Records, and will be invited to play again the next day, against a new challenger. If there is a tie after 5 questions, there will be tie breaker questions until one contestant has the most correct answers. If the winning contestant is unable to continue, we will start with two new callers the following day. The first and second caller will be chosen to participate.

The prize will be awarded within 30 days. Coast 93.1’s sole responsibility is to award the prize; therefore, Coast 93.1 will have no further responsibility in connection with the prize if the prize winner, for any reason, does not come to pick up his or her gift card(s).
