9. What are the COVID-19 safety measures for picking up the prize(s)?

Please keep in mind that safety is our number one priority for you and our employees.

In order to obtain your prize, the winner will need to come by the station and pick up the prize(s) as we will need the winner to fill out paperwork. KSAT12 is required to have the original paperwork on hand in person, which is the reason why we need you to physically visit our station.

With this in mind, this is how we will have the exchange set up:

  • Upon arriving to KSAT12 located at 1408 N. St. Mary’s, please bring a valid driver’s license and be ready to fill out a W9 tax release form (this is required as stated in the contest rules).
  • Please only have one person approach the lobby door outside the station.
  • Ring the intercom on the outside of our door and announce your name and the prize you won and for the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways.
  • A KSAT12 employee will then bring your paperwork to you to fill out while you remain outside.
  • Once the paperwork is completed, please return the paperwork to the KSAT12 employee.
  • The KSAT12 employee will then present your prize to you in exchange for the paperwork.
  • You will also need to wear a face mask, but you do not have to wear the face mask in the photo.
  • As a winner, we do require winners to take pictures with the prize(s) so we can post them online and on social media.

10. Can I pick up the prize and fill out the paperwork for the winner if they are unable to make it?

Legally, we need the original winner to fill out the contest W9 paperwork since this is a tax document. For security measures, we need the original winner to pick up the prize in person.
