Selection Sunday has occurred and we all know if our team made the tournament. All the sports fanatics are gearing up for the first weekend of March Madness and meanwhile here at highlowaha we are engaged in our second week of March Madness tournament action pitting creative teams against one another for the hottest creative ideas of the past year. Last week we saw Team Iowa and Team California breeze through to the second round of the tournament. This week will determine what two other teams will make their way to the semi-finals.
Over the month of March these eight teams will put their most creative ideas, products, websites, resources, recipes, and more on center court. While each team has a winning line-up of ideas, they are only allowed to present one star idea at a time. We, the spectators, then get to vote on that day's M.V.P... or as the case may be, M.V.I. The team with the winning idea then advances to the next round of play. So it goes until Monday, March 30 when we face off for the championship game.
Remember that YOUR vote determines which team advances. We had a great round of voting last Thursday and I'd love to see that same energy as we decide who moves on today. Will it be
Cleveland's Creatives or Texas Tidbits?
