As a licensee of the FCC and a trustee of the public airwaves, 1350 KRNT-AM reserves the right to interrupt and/or discontinue any contest or promotion (and not award the offered prize) at the discretion of 1350 KRNT-AM management if world events, the national mood, or public safety so warrant.

  16. 1350 KRNT-AM shall have no responsibility for contestant’s inability or failure to participate, failure to win or claim any prize based on malfunction or difficulties with telephone, cell phone, texting, email, or internet access, or any other circumstances in any contest beyond 1350 KRNT-AM’s control.
  17. The following are specifically related to E-contests and E-Mail Club promotions on www.1350KRNT.com:

    3. Any problems with the internet or email are not 1350 KRNT-AM responsibility.
    4. Contestants who register to participate on our website may be required to produce a printed copy of proof of registration before being allowed to participate in the contest.
    5. Due to the nature of our programs that are heard on-line over the internet, contests may not be heard at all. Contests heard on the radio station’s internet audio stream may be slightly delayed from the time the contests are heard on the broadcast station, and will be running behind the broadcast signal. Thus, all contests heard are delayed. This delay can last for as much as 30 seconds or more. This means that when 1350 KRNT-AM contests are played that require a specific caller to telephone the radio station (such as “Caller number 9 when you hear the sound effect”), listeners to the on-line audio stream may be at a disadvantage in participating over those listeners who hear the contests on-air.
  18. A copy of these rules are available during business hours at the 1350 KRNT-AM studios 1416 Locust St., Des Moines, IA 50309

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
