I’ve been looking forward to March with even more anticipation this year because after the NCAA March Madness tournament was cancelled last year, I’ve been waiting for this year’s tournament. 4 years ago when I started this fashion edition of March Madness, I never thought of how fun it truly would be to share with each one of you. It means a lot that you are so supportive and that you get just as excited as I do!
If you haven’t played in the past, we are so glad you are here to play this year! If you have played in the past few years, welcome back! This year is going to be even bigger and better and that is partly to do with the fact that we have been so blessed to have some incredible companies we are teaming up with this year who are sponsoring the event! Make sure you check out their Instagrams, give them a follow and if you see something you love….buy it! These are all small, family owned businesses that I love supporting and have been shopping with for years.
A HUGE THANK YOU to our sponsors:
Now let’s talk how to participate and play! It’s really easy and there are lots of fun ways to win prizes this year too!
1.VOTE, VOTE VOTE: We have our 64 contestants ready to go head to head on my Instagram Stories for a chance to be the last item standing. Each week we will be voting on which items YOU like best. We start with 64 items, and after each set of votes we will go from 64 to 32, the sweet sixteen, the elite eight, the final four, and finally….THE CHAMPIONSHIP. For every vote you place, you’ll get one entry into our drawing. Stay tuned on my stories (or see below) for additional ways to enter each week.
2. WIN, WIN, WIN: One lucky participant will get the chance to WIN the item with the most votes during the championship round, just for voting! Plus this year I am giving away additional prizes during each round of the tournament for participants! The best way to see those additional prizes is to follow along on my Instagram (@everyday_ellis).
3. BRACKET: For an additional 30 entries, download and complete the bracket at the bottom of this blog post. Guess which item you think will go all the way. Complete the entire bracket all at one time. Once you have filled out your bracket, take a photo and send it to me via Instagram (or email to email@example.com) so I can see who you have winning. For each item you guessed correctly, you’ll get an additional entry. The elite eight and final four round will give you an additional 4 points for each one you guessed correctly. If you guess the winning item correctly, you’ll get an additional 10 points. The person with the most points (just based on their bracket) will win a big prize at the end! Brackets must be submitted to me by 1 pm MST on Friday, March 19th in order to be considered. For tips on completing your bracket, watch my stories Thursday morning.
4. RULES: You must follow Everyday Ellis on Instagram to be entered to win. You can find me here. You must participate by voting on my Instagram stories. This giveaway will take place from March 19th – April 6th, 2021. Winner will be chosen at random between all entries using random number generator and will be contacted within one week from the final voting period. If the winning item is sold out by the time the game is over, you will be given a gift card to the shop the item is from in the amount the item cost.
*If you don’t have Instagram, but would still like to participate, complete a bracket and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. EXTRA ENTRIES: Stay up to date on my Instagram Stories to see how each round you can earn additional entries and prizes. Some of these may include, completing your bracket, sharing on social media, sharing with friends, commenting on the blog post and more. These extra entries are also subject to winning additional prizes.
