Cash in for $250 by picking weekly college football winners


Fans have until Friday at 4 to enter this week’s Natchitoches Parish Journal College Football Pick ‘Em Contest. Anyone has the chance to win a $250 prize as the week’s top predictor of 10 college games, featuring NSU, LSU, Grambling, and other teams of local interest.

There is no entry charge, just like there is no cost to subscribe to the Natchitoches Parish Journal.

Participation is very simple. Just click on 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 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.

The entry window will remain open this week until 4 p.m. (Friday)

One person will win each week’s $250 prize, to be announced in the Journal early the following week as the subsequent Pick ‘Em Contest launches. All contest decisions by NPJ 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 will also pick 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.

It will be fun for participants to compare their weekly records to the panel of experts and celebrities to be announced next week.

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

Notes: Just ONE $250.00 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 by Management are final.
