Can you pick a perfect bracket? Join me for NCAA Men’s basketball tournament challenge for teachers!
All you have to do is select the winning team in all 63 games of the 2023 Men’s NCAA basketball tournament.
Not a basketball (or sports) fan? No problem! You have just as good a chance of winning as someone who watches every game. That’s why they call it “march madness!”
Trivia: the best bracket of all time correctly predicted 49/64 games (75% accuracy). You don’t have to be perfect to win!
Prizes for the winner! 🥳
To make things a little more interesting, I reached out to some of my favorite EdTech companies who agreed to donate prizes for the tournament winner:
- Intuos Drawing tablet from Wacom
- Google Nest Mini from Vizor
- $50 gift certificate to the Figma store
- One-year subscription to Pear Deck
How to Play:
- Click here to register for the challenge (instructions will be sent via email)
- Select your winners before March 16, 2023
- Follow along throughout the tournament. You earn points for each game you correctly pick. The person with the most points at the end of the tournament wins!
- The winner will be announced on April 5
