2021 KOOL 105 Big 80s Song Search Contest Rules

Each participant must complete the registration process to become eligible to play. The registration is a simple process that involves filling out your contact information, team name creation, and password selection. Once you create a member ID (your email address), choose a password, and select your team name, you will then be given the opportunity to start making your bracket selections.

The KOOL 105 Big 80s Song Search Bracket Challenge starts Monday October 25 and ends Sunday November 21. During this period, there will be six separate voting periods in which you can participate:

Round 1: October 25-31

Round 2: November 1-7

Round 3: November 8-11

Round 4: November 12-14

Round 5: November 15-18

Round 6: November 19-21

You become eligible for our grand prize giveaway by completing the registration process and voting in at least one of the six rounds.

You may vote as many times as you’d like in each round, and in as many rounds as you wish, but you will only receive one entry into the contest regardless of how many rounds and votes you complete.
