AHBA Scholarship March Madness Bracket Challenge
The Asheville Home Builders Association's Workforce Development Committee is excited to release the AHBA Scholarship March Madness Bracket Challenge. Anyone can play in this fun, easy way to support the AHBA's Scholarship Program - after all, who doesn't like a little friendly competition?
A $10 contribution per bracket enters you to selecting the teams you think will win the 2019 NCAA Basketball Tournament.
Where do the proceeds go?
- 75% of the proceeds directly support future scholarships awarded to students studying in the construction field. On average, the AHBA awards up to $3,000 per year to students who apply to the AHBA Scholarship Program - we'd like to see this amount grow, wouldn't you?
- 25% of the proceeds go to the lucky 1st Place Winner, along with some serious bragging rights!
To complete the tournament bracket, select the team you think will win each game. For each correct pick in the 1st round, you will "score" 1 point. The point totals increase for each round: 2 points for the 2nd round, 4 points for the Sweet 16 round, 8 points for the Elite Eight round, 16 points for the Final Four round, and 32 points for the Championship game. If needed, the final score of the Championship game will be used as a tiebreaker to determine the winner. Your bracket must be completed online, no later than 12:00pm on Thursday, March 21, prior to the start of play, in order to be eligible to win.
