Enter The Rambler’s 2015 Bracket Challenge Contest


March 16, 2015

The 2015 NCAA Tournament field was selected on Sunday. That means March Madness is here, and The Rambler’s Bracket Challenge is back. The third annual contest is free to enter and is open to anyone at Prep, including students, faculty, and staff. One need not know anything about basketball to enter. In fact, sometimes knowing less may be a blessing in disguise.

Rules

1. Entrants must be a current Prep student, faculty, or staff member to enter. Please write your name and grade on your bracket. Click to download and print the official bracket. Or, see a member of The Rambler staff or Mr. Hubert in Room 402 for a copy.

2. All brackets must be turned in to Mr. Hubert in Room 402, printed out, by Thursday, March 19, 2015, by noon Eastern time. No late or electronic submissions will be accepted.

3. You must fill in a winner for all the games beginning with Second Round games played Thursday and Friday. You do not need to include the First Round (“play-in”) games that will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday.
