This school spirit tournament is designed to foster creativity by giving students and alumni an avenue to showcase their school spirit and tell everyone what makes their school great.

The contest is a single-elimination bracket contest, inspired by the NCAA Tournament.  Every school has been placed into one of four brackets and match-ups were chosen at random.  Each game will begin at 12:00pm on Monday afternoon and conclude at 12:00pm on Friday afternoon.  The school that scores the most points during that time will advance to the next round.
