ArchaeoMadness Rules and Prizes

In ArchaeoMadness, 32 archaeological sites enter the tournament in a single elimination bracket.  Each day participants can vote for their favorite archaeological site in a head-to-head competition between two sites.  The winning sites from each matchup move on to the next round.  This will be repeated in each round until the championship.

There are two ways to participate: submit a bracket before the tournament begins to be considered for the Grand Prize and/or, once the tournament starts, pick a favorite site each day and vote for it!

Grand Prize
The year's grand prize is a quadcopter drone with camera!  Brackets must be submitted by 5pm (Eastern) on September 25.

Daily Prizes
One lucky voter each day will win one of our daily prizes (you must supply your e-mail address when voting to be considered).

Sweet Sixteen (8 prizes): Selection of fun archaeology buttons
Elite Eight (4 prizes): Digital ARCHAEOLOGY magazine subscription
Final Four (2 prizes): AIA Society Membership
Championship (1 prize): AIA Society Membership & AIA Totebag
