Join in all the fun of this summer by playing our "What's In The Box" summer contest!

WIN $1000 CASH!

Remember the anticipation of guessing what present was waiting for you, underneath the wrapping paper and nestled in the box? Now's your chance to see how good of a guesser you are with "What's in the Box?"

Beginning July 6th we're featuring a mystery prize in the box. Just take a "peek" inside below, with a clue to help you narrow down what's actually waiting inside for you to win! Enter your guess using our entry form below and all of those that guess correctly will be entered for a chance to win what's in the box!

Winners will be announced every Friday during the morning show and posted online. Keep coming back to this page because you'll have a chance to play again when we put the next mystery prize in the box. (Weekly prizes given away until Friday, July 31st)
