The Stakes

In Munch Madness 2013, even the spectators have a chance to take home a trophy—made of dollars!
Disclaimer: Dollars not actually presented in the shape of a trophy.

There are a couple of different ways you can win. First, be sure to submit a bracket with your Munch Madness predictions before the deadline (assuming time travel capability on your part), in order to be eligible for any of the $50 prizes that will be awarded for the highest-scoring bracket after each of three rounds. In the event of a tie, a random prize winner will be drawn from those who share the highest score—but all highest-scoring bracketeers will be announced and awarded bragging rights.

Suppose you fill in a bracket and the votes don’t go your way. Don’t worry! You still have a chance to win just by voting each day in the Munch Madness polls. Each vote you cast is an entry for another $50 prize, awarded randomly at the end of the event to one eligible voter. 


Make Your Prediction

Bracket submissions are closed as of March 17, because the first round’s winners have been announced. You can still download and print a blank bracket of your own to fill out, vote, and follow along.
