Local businesses are the heart and soul of our hometowns and they need us NOW more than ever.

Please keep this in mind as you shop for the holidays this year.

With every local business purchase you make, send us a copy of your receipt by either uploading it below or texting it to 828-MIX-KIOW, along with your name for an entry to win $500 in KIOW bucks to be spent at participating businesses to be awarded on December 21st. Send us a copy of your receipt from one of our sponsor businesses and receive 5 entries!

In addition to our generic contest rules, these rules apply to this promotion: Local businesses are any business located in the communities of Winnebago and Hancock counties, as well as the cities of Belmond and Clarion.
Multiple entries are allowed, but each entry must include a different receipt.
Receipts must be dated from November 16th to December 18th, 2020 to qualify.
No purchase necessary. To gain entry in the contest, send a picture of yourself and include your name and phone number.

Winner will be chosen at random from all entries.
