Overtime drawing

I am a computer programmer. The company I work for has always paid straight pay for any hours over 45. About 18 months ago the company eliminated overtime pay and incorperated a contest. The rules of the contest are:
You get entries for a drawing according to how many hours over 45 you work each week. Each month they draw a winner and the winner gets their overtime pay for that month and a free dinner. I have two questions.
1. Am I exempt.
2. Is it legal to randomly decide who gets paid overtime through a drawing.

You did not provide enough information for me to determine if you are exempt. You need to contact a local attorney or call the Department of Labor for the answer.
