PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH – Owens Community College and four Clear Channel radio stations are partnering in a contest to award a free college education to four area residents, with two winners receiving the grand prize of two semesters of free Owens tuition.

The promotion is airing on radio stations 92.5 Kiss FM, 104.7 WIOT, 101.5 The River and 103.7 CKY and is open to area residents until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20.

“Thanks to the generosity of Clear Channel Radio, four individuals will be able to experience a quality higher education for free at Owens Community College,” said Dr. Gary Corrigan, Owens Director of Marketing and Communications.

Individuals can enter the contest by logging onto any of five websites – www.owens.edu, www.925kissfm.com, www.wiot.com, www.1015theriver.com or www.1037wcky.com – clicking on the “Tuition is Right” and correctly answering the entry question.

Applicants also can enter by completing a paper entry form, which is available at the Owens Community College Toledo-area and Findlay-area campuses as well as at The Source Learning Center in downtown Toledo and the Arrowhead Park Learning Center in Maumee.

All qualifying entrants will be eligible to attend the first final on Tuesday, July 26 at 3 p.m. at the Community Education and Wellness Center on the Owens Findlay-area Campus in Findlay. 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 July 26 will be eligible to attend the second final on Wednesday, July 27 at 6 p.m. at the Student Health and Activities Center on the Owens Toledo-area Campus in Perrysburg Township.
