Want to have a chance to win $1 million? The Brewton Standard is giving you that opportunity by partnering with other media outlets across the country in this year’s March Madness bracket contest.

During this special event, residents will have a chance to fill out a bracket and enter a nationwide contest for the chance at $1 million. All you have to do is pick the perfect bracket from the round of 64 to the championship game and cash the check. Other national prizes include a PlayStation 5 and gift cards.

Shortly after the 64-team field is announced Sunday evening, our bracket contest will go live at We encourage you to register and make your picks before the first games are played next Friday.

You will also have a chance to pick against a slate of Standard VIP pickers. Picks must be submitted by 10:45 a.m. next Friday, before the first-round games begin.

Besides competing against people in Escambia County and across the country, you can also set up groups among friends or colleagues to see who can pick the best bracket. So if you want to pick a bracket based on who has the cooler mascot or uniforms, go right ahead. It’s all free, and mostly for fun.
