How to Enter/How to Win
1. Anyone who wishes to be a contestant in the Contest and is not a ticket holder for the event simply needs to go to the venue box office before 9:00 pm and ask for the Station Contest judge. If the initial Station Contest judge determines that such contestant is not a potential candidate for the top ten selection, such contestant will not be allowed to enter. If the initial Station Contest judge determines that such contestant is not a potential candidate for the top ten selections, such contestant will not be allowed to enter. If such contestant is a potential candidate for the top ten selections, such candidate will be escorted into the event by a Station representative and shall be allowed to remain until such time as such contestant is eliminated from further participation in or wins the Costume Contest. Being invited in to participate further in the Contest as a “potential top ten selection” does not mean that such entrant will actually be selected as a top ten selection qualifier.
2. On December 22, 2017, Station will conduct a Costume Contest at The Shelter Detroit, located at 431 East Congress Street, Detroit, MI 48226. Doors will open at 7:00 pm Eastern Time (“ET”).

FINALISTS MUST BE IN AND REMAIN IN THEIR COSTUME DURING THE ON-STAGE CONTESTING. The selection of the top ten Finalists shall be in the sole discretion of the Station initial judges, on any lawful criteria they deem desirable, and is not subject to dispute or appeal.

3. All Finalists will be escorted to the stage and will be brought up on stage, and up to three (3) semi-finalists will be chosen based on voting by crowd noise (Each a Semi-Finalist”). As each Finalist is introduced, the crowd will be asked to vote by making noise for their favorite Finalist.
4. The three (3) Semi-Finalists will be determined by the loudest positive crowd reactions. The crowd will again be asked to vote by creating noise for their choice of the best costume among the three Semi-Finalists. The person who obtains the loudest crowd positive reaction is the Grand Prize winner. Station reserves the right to select less than three Semi-Finalists, in its sole discretion. The interpretation of which Finalist or Semi-Finalist receives more or the most positive crowd reaction shall be in the sole discretion of the Station and any such decision is not subject to dispute or appeal.
