The Grand Prize Event will take place on Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013 at the Indianapolis Auto Show at the Indiana Convention Center in the Central Indiana Chevrolet Dealers section.  

7.    IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE GRAND PRIZE EVENT, QUALIFIERS MUST ATTEND THE GRAND PRIZE EVENT IN PERSON AT THE INDIANAPOLIS AUTO SHOW ON DEC. 29 AND CHECK-IN WITH STATION STAFF NO LATER THAN 1:30 PM (EST). Qualifiers must check-in at the Station’s Check-In Table (located within the Central Indiana Chevrolet Dealers area) between 1-1:30 p.m. (EST). Qualifiers must present a valid government-issued picture ID and will be required to sign a liability release agreement and eligibility acknowledgement form “as-is” at check-in. If a Qualifier has not checked-in and produced and executed all required documentation at the Station’s Check-In Table by 1:30 p.m. (EST), such Qualifier will be disqualified and their opportunity to participate in any portion of the Grand Prize Event shall be forfeited. Properly checked-in Qualifiers will be deemed “Finalist” in this contest.

8.    Each Finalist will randomly select a number from 1-26 and be given a receipt confirming that number, which will represent that Finalist’s official number. Numbers will range from 1 to 26, or, in the case the total number of Finalists is less than 26, only up to the number of total Finalists will be assigned.  Finalists will receive a Chevy tote bag with the corresponding number on it (containing a key) and will line-up in ascending numerical order, open their bag, take the key out of the official bag as their official number is called and then will immediately use this key to attempt to set off the alarm of the displayed 2014 Chevy Sonic. The first Finalist whose key sets off the alarm will be declared the Grand Prize Winner, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Contest rules, and the Contest will be immediately over. There will be only one (1) Grand Prize Winner. No other Finalists will be permitted to try a key after that point. It is a possibility that not all Finalists will be able to try their key. However, all non-winning Finalists may choose to remain at the Grand Prize Event in the event no key sets off the alarm, in which case, a random drawing has to take place to select the Grand Prize Winner (see immediately following paragraph).

9.    In the event no Finalist’s key sets off the alarm of the contest vehicle, then the Station will conduct a random drawing among all Finalists to select up to one (1) Grand Prize Winner, subject to eligibility and compliance with these Contest rules. ANY FINALIST WHO HAS DEPARTED THE GRAND PRIZE EVENT WILL FORFEIT THEIR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DRAWING. All Finalists then present will be eligible to participate in the drawing.
