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 4th, 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.

Very exciting news to announce. This year our March Edness party will also be celebrating edhat's 15th anniversary! Put a reminder in your calendar for Wednesday, April 24th at Carr Winery from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. to meet the edhat staff, March Edness winners, and other local edhat readers as we ring in edhat's 15th birthday. More details to come on this exciting party.

I think my average for correct answers over the years is about 1 out of 100. But, the fun group and excitement keeps me engaged.

Team mfitch54 has been getting excited since about Feb. 7! We love March Edness. We've been spending all day every day driving around, memorizing sculptures, signs and fence posts. I love this game.

This contest is a teaching lesson for those of us who aren't able to name the item in the photos. We can be sure to take notice of them when in the vicinity and hopefully become more observant of our surrounds.
