CONGRATULATIONS TO HEDGESVILLE HIGH SCHOOL!!!
- Each school represents it's own March Madness Team.
- Your team name will be your high school name.
- Ponts are accumulated based on the scoring system found below.
- If your school is already at 100% Voter Registration - that is awesome! You can still earn points for voter engagement efforts, social media, registering other high schools, attending local city council or school board meetings, and contacting your elected officials.
- If your school did a VRD or voter engagement activity prior to March 11, we will still count it towards your point totals. Please advise Olivia Hubbard or Alexas ASAP.
Each school must turn in their weekly totals in the online form found at March Madness Points Form
- It is best to have 1 Inspired Leader or teacher designated to submitting your points each week so there is less confusion. All forms and pledge cards must be mailed to your regional manager/coordinator on Fridays. If you need a prepaid label, let Olivia Hubbard or Alexa know by Friday at 3:00 PM. If you have questions about the March Madness Points Form and how to tally up your points, contact Olivia.
- Updated scores will be announced every Monday on this webpage and on the Inspire WV Instagram --> @inspirewestvirginia <--Follow the Instagram now!
- The Tournament runs from Monday, March 11th - Friday, April 11th. A final tally will be taken Friday, April 12th at 7:30pm. The winner will be announced on Monday, April 15th.
