Bracket challenge participants can fill out their bracket online at challonge.com or at the bottom of this post. Before filling out a bracket, individuals will be asked to create an account on Challonge. Creating an account on Challonge is free and takes less than a minute to complete.

Along with the perfect bracket challenge, the individuals with the highest score for each of the five brackets — Conference Carolinas Tournament, MPSF Tournament, MIVA Tournament, EIVA Tournament and NCAA Tournament —- will receive a prize-pack from Springbak, Inc. and Off the Block.
