puntacana_genericSponsored by WDEL Delaware’s news radio and Arizona State University, the You’ve been Sentenced! Radio Game begins Monday October 19 and runs through November 27. Based on the multi-awarding winning word game, the You’ve been Sentenced! Radio Game allows listeners to play online for a chance to win great prizes daily, plus, a chance at the Grand Prize, an all-inclusive four-night trip for two to the Occidental Grand Punta Cana Resort including airfare, courtesy of Apple Vacations.

Simply go to the WDEL website at to create a sentence and justification – it’s easy and fun! The 5 funniest submissions for each day will be read aloud on air and one will be chosen as the daily winner of a free copy of the board game version. Winners can pick up their prize at any one of the participating retailers which include YoYo Joe’s in North Wilmington, Days of Knights in Newark, and Kids Ketch in Lewes.

Plus, if you’re a student and your sentence is read on air, you will win a pilot pass for the interactive white board version of the game for your school. The interactive white board voucher can be used for any white board and the application will be available later this fall.
