It is not quite out with the old and in with the new, but it's close.
The Monett Times and Cassville Democrat have teamed together to offer the public not one, but two pick'ems like no other -- the Country Dodge Pigskin Pick'em and the NFL Pick'em Challenge
Each week, individuals have the opporitunity to win a $25 gift certificate just for picking the most winners of area high schools and NFL football games.
At the end of the year, a local grand prize of a 32-inch flat screen television will be awarded in each of our two contests.
As a bonus feature, participants in our new NFL Pick'em challenge will be competing for a grand prize of a trip for two to Hawaii.
Both contests are free to enter, but there is a catch. You must go online to www.monett-times.com/contest to register, and in less time than it takes to brush your teeth you will be ready to compete.
The game itself is easy to play. Log into your account each week and choose who you think will win the preselected high school, college and NFL games. The players with the highest total of correct picks win.
The only way you can't win is if you don't play. Think about it: bragging rights, a new TV and Hawaii could be just a few clicks away.
