Owens Community College and three Clear Channel radio stations are partnering in a contest to award a free tuition to four area residents, with two winners receiving the grand prize of two semesters of free Owens tuition.
92.5 KISS-FM, 104.7 WIOT and 103.7 CKY are currently airing promotional announcements for the contest. Individuals can enter by logging onto any of four Web sites – www.owens.edu, www.925kissfm.com, www.wiot.com or www.1037wcky.com, and clicking on “Tuition is Right” and correctly answering three questions.
Applicants also can enter by completing a paper entry form available at the Enrollment Services Office on the Owens Toledo-area campus or the Reception Desk at the Owens Learning Center at The Source in downtown Toledo.
All entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 2. All qualifying entrants will be eligible to attend the first final Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 3 p.m. at the Community Education and Wellness Center on the Owens Findlay-area Campus.
One grand prize of two semesters of free tuition and one runner-up prize of one semester of free tuition will be awarded by random draw. All qualifying entrants who do not win a tuition prize Aug. 5 are eligible to attend the second final Thursday, Aug. 6 at 3 p.m. at the Student Health and Activities Center on the Owens Toledo-area campus.
The second grand prize of two semesters of free tuition and final runner-up prize of one semester of free tuition also will be awarded by random draw. Also at the finals, other valuable prizes - such as free food for a year from SONIC Drive-In; free rent for a year from Owens Lake Commons; and more will be drawn and awarded at random as well.
The contest is open to residents 16 years of age or older. This marks the ninth time since 2003 that Owens has partnered with Northwest Ohio media to offer a tuition contest.
