March is just around the corner, 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 2nd, 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.

Last year we celebrated our March Edness winners AND our 15th anniversary with a kick-ass party at Carr Winery. Stay tuned for more details on this year's March Edness party.
