Click the link, make your picks, cash $250


Round 8 this week in the Shreveport-Bossier Journal High School Football Pick ‘Em Contest. That means it’s another week when you can win $250 by picking the winning teams.

You have until Thursday at 4 to enter this week’s contest. Anyone has the chance to win a $250 prize as the week’s top predictor of local prep football games.

The contests are conducted weekly during the 10-game high school football season. There is no entry charge, just like there is no cost to subscribe to the Shreveport-Bossier Journal.

Participation is very simple for anyone able to access this link:

The Pick ‘Em portal opens to a menu of game-by-game matchups, with an easy click to pick winning teams for each contest. Two local games will be used as tiebreakers, with participants predicting the total points scored in those games.

It takes 20-30 seconds to sign up and not much longer than that to make your picks.

Entries are open now for local games Thursday and Friday nights this week.

One person will win each week’s $250 prize. The Week 3 winner will be announced in the Journal on Tuesday of next week. 

All contest decisions by SBJ management are final.

Every participant will receive a FREE subscription to the Journal, if you’re not already signed up for the easily-navigated, convenient 6:55 a.m. daily e-mail.

A panel of Journal writers and local celebrities are also picking the games each week, but won’t be eligible to win the cash prizes. Their individual picks will NOT be publicized, just the week’s final win-loss results and the season’s record for each picker. Those results will be unveiled next week.

It will be fun to compare your weekly results to the SBJ squad: Teddy Allen, Jerry Byrd Jr.,  Lee Hiller, Doug Ireland, Roy Lang III, John James Marshall, Harriet Prothro Penrod and Tony Taglavore. The celebrity picker panel includes some of Shreveport-Bossier’s best-known folks aiming to outrank the experts, and each other, each week.

Enjoy it all, for FREE, and enter each week’s contest. You could collect $250, maybe more than once!

One Cash Winner per week.  You must be 18 years of age or older.  Only your FIRST submission will count, any others you submit will be excluded. Tiebreakers are the closest to the total points without going over.

All decisions made by Management are final.
