Readers of the BizTimes Daily are invited to enter the inaugural BizTimes Media Economic Distraction Plan, a free online pool of NCAA basketball tournament predictions. To register for the contest, visit http://www.biztimes.com/hoops.
Contestants must be at least 21 years of age. They can register now and will be reminded to fill out their bracket selections between selection Sunday, March 15, and 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 19.
The first-place individual winner will receive a prize package valued at $500.
Additional prizes will be awarded for second through 10th place.
All contestants who finish with higher point totals than the official BizTimes prediction will be entered into a drawing for more than 50 individual prizes.
The contest also will feature competition for companies. All contestants will compete as individuals, but by registering with their company name and encouraging their co-workers to enter, they will automatically be part of the company competition. The top three companies (total cumulative points of all individuals from the same company) will be profiled in a full-page ad in the April 17 issue of BizTimes Milwaukee. The top company also will receive a party for up to 40 people in the Club ’71 suite at the game between the Milwaukee Bucks and. Orlando Magic on Monday, April 13, at the Bradley Center, a prize worth more than $2,500.
Contestants will be able to track their results online as the tournament unfolds.
Sponsors who have donated prizes so far for the March Madness pool contest include: the US Bank Championship, Sprecher Brewing, Milwaukee Bucks and 88Nine Radio Milwaukee.
