The Stukent March Madness Challenge

We know you know what time it is.

It’s that time of year when we all pretend that we know what we’re talking about in college hoops!

“Oh you picked them to beat them? You must have lost your mind!”

Even though you’ve never watched either team play…And that’s why it’s so much fun.

This year we are doing something WE’VE NEVER DONE BEFORE. We’ve created a Stukent bracket for all students and professors. Yes, I know we’re probably like the 5th bracket you’re thinking about joining, but hear me out.

We’re giving away up to $400 in Amazon gift cards!

Yes, you read that correctly. Here’s how we’ll break it down.

  • 1st place = $200
  • 2nd place = $75
  • 3rd place = $25

But that’s not all.

If a Stukent university ends up winning the national championship, we are going to ADD an additional $100 to the champion’s Amazon gift card. That totals it up to a $300 Amazon gift card going out to the winner! I could put that gift card to work real fast on Amazon.

Below you’ll find a list of all the Stukent universities (schools that use the Stukent courseware) that happen to have made the big dance this year.

How to join?

Joining our bracket and competing for a chance to win some mega Amazon gift card action is simple. Follow the instructions below.

  1. Go here (our bracket is through Yahoo! Sports).
  2. Click the blue “Join Pool” button on the right.
  3. Login to your Yahoo! account or quickly create one.
  4. Once you’re in, Yahoo!  does a great job walking you through filling out your own bracket.
  5. That’s it.

How will we announce the winner?

If you have chosen to keep your email private within Yahoo! Sports, then we will use your Yahoo! Sports username to identify you. It’s important that you check your pool regularly, especially after the national championship game. If you are a top three finisher, you will need to email me – Trevor at and let me know who you are. I will also reach out via the message board within our Yahoo! Tourney Pick’em Pool.

Important things to remember.

  • Deadline to complete bracket is March 19 12:15pm EDT.
  • Yahoo! provides an amazing head-to-head analysis tool. Even if you haven’t watched a lot of basketball this year, this tool will help you out big time!
  • You need a Yahoo! account. If you don’t, creating one is easy and quick.

Good luck! I will be battling with you. My username is “Heavy.” I even got our CEO and Founder Stuart Draper to fill out a bracket, his username is “Stuart”… how original 🙂
