March Madness is upon us.

You are invited to participate in The Republic’s third annual Bracket Challenge in connection with the men’s college basketball tournament.

Go to to register for entry in this year’s contest. Once the teams are selected Sunday evening, you’ll  have until 11 a.m. EDT on Thursday, March 17, to fill in your brackets.

The contest is part of a larger $1 million contest, but we also will have lots of local prizes including electronics, gift cards, gift certificates for local services, and local event tickets. In addition to the overall contest, there is a round-by-round contest allowing participants a second chance at prizes.

Entrants must be at least 18 years of age as of March 17, 2016, and not employed by AIM Media Indiana to be eligible for prizes. No purchase necessary for entry.

Good luck.
