March is just a week away, and for all of you dedicated edhat readers, you know what that means…. March Edness is almost here!

For those that are new to edhat, March Edness is a fun and highly competitive photo hunt game that questions how well you know your local area. Or just how well you remember details about your surroundings.

Every weekday in March (Monday through Friday), beginning on Monday, March 1st, we’ll post a cropped photo on edhat at midnight. You then have until 8:00 pm that same day to guess the location in that photo. The first week we start off easy and then progressively increase the challenge through Week 4.

At the end of Week 4, the top three winners will be announced. Since this game is only for paid edhat subscribers, don’t forget to renew your membership to be eligible to play and win prizes.

Normally we celebrate the winners, honorable mentions, and anyone who loves Ed at a fun party with food, drinks, and music. Last year we cancelled due to COVID-19 and this year we will have to do the same. But don't worry, we still have some amazing prizes lined up for our winners this year. And look out 2022, that party is going to be rockin', safely of course.

Below are the rules for the game in their entirety but email us at [email protected] with any questions.
