Local Radio and Newspaper College Basketball Contests

You are here - Home -> College Basketball Tournament 2014 -> Local Contests

There are hundreds of different local March college basketball Madness contests. I have created this page so I could list these local contests. I have seen four main types of contests that are used: Townsquare Media Bracket Challenge, Upickem March Fever, Pooltracker.com and Facebook March Brackets.

Townsquare Media $1,000,000 Bracket Challenge - Contest registration begins March 6, 2014 and ends at 12:00pm ET on Thursday, March 20, 2014. These contests are only valid in the Market area for the radio station. You will receive 1 point for each of the 63 games that you have the correct winner. There is a Grand Prize of $1,000,000 for picking a Perfect Bracket. Bonus Prize of $10,000 cash if you get 60 out of 63 games correct. Otherwise, there will be one 1st Place winner for picking the most correct games. There will be one winner per local contest. Details are on each site.

Upickem.net $1,000,000 March Fever 2014 Challenge - Open to legal residents of the 50 States of the United States and the District of Columbia who are over 18 years of age or older, and legal residents of Canada (no Quebec) who are of legal age in their province. Local affiliates that participate may offer their own first place prize, but this prize will only be for a local resident of the listening area. Scoring goes: 1st round - 2 points per game; 2nd round - 4 points; 3rd round - 8 points; 4th round - 16 points; 5th round - 32 points; 6th round - 64 points. You must submit you picks by 12:00pm ET on Thursday, March 20, 2014. There is an official College Fathead awarded to the winner of each round, as well as the overall winner (who also receives a 16GB iPad Mini). You can win $1,000,000 for a perfect bracket, $10,000 if you get at least 61 games correct, and $1,000 if you get at least 60 games correct.

Pooltracker.com, Poolhost.com, and Hoopspickem.com Brackets - These contests are all separate from each other, but there is an overall prize that is offered by Pooltracker.com. They offer an easy way to set up your own private bracket group (password protected). I have listed the contests that are offered by business and radio stations through Pooltracker.com. Pooltracker.com Prizes - $100,000 for Perfect bracket, $10,000 for 60 correct picks. The scoring systems may be different from contest to contest. Hoopspickem.com prizes include a $50,000 prize for guessing 60 or more correct, a $5,000 prize for guessing 57 to 59 correct, a $1,000 prize for guessing 55 or 56 correctly, and a $500 prize for correctly guessing all 16 of the Sweet 16 teams.

Facebook College Basketball Bracket Challenge - There are no national prizes for this contest. Any local prizes will be handled by the Local Media Partner. You will need to enter your picks before 12:00pm ET on March 20, 2014. Scoring goes: 1st round - 1 point per game; 2nd round - 2 points; 3rd round - 3 points; 4th round - 4 points; 5th round - 5 points; 6th round - 10 points.
