Bracket Mania

Filling out a bracket for the college basketball tournament is an annual American tradition. There’s nothing like picking a winner and whether you pick teams by stats, colors, mascots, or you just don’t like the other team – your picks could win you $250-$1,000 while supporting the academic and athletic needs of JPII students!

Here’s how it works:

  • Since brackets are filled out online, anyone anywhere can participate!
  • Brackets are $20 each – buy 1 or buy more than 1 – you can enter as many times as you’d like.
  • Reserve your bracket(s) now by paying with a credit card using the form on this page or Venmo @JPIICatholic with the note “Bracket Mania” and your email address.
  • Shortly after the teams are announced on Sunday, March 13 at 6:00 p.m. ET, those who have purchased brackets will receive a link and password to fill out their bracket(s).
  • All brackets must be completed by 12:00 noon on Thursday, March 17th!
  • Points are awarded for each winning pick; point values increase as the tournament progresses.
  • The top 10 point leaders in each of the first 5 rounds will be placed in a raffle drawing to win a cash prize.
  • After the final game, all individuals with the highest point totals and the winning team selected will be placed in a raffle to win the grand prize.

Bracket Mania is a fundraising family entertainment opportunity. All funds raised will support the academic and athletic needs of JPII students!

The deadline to participate has passed.
