Global March Madness: Social Showdown

Does your community have what it takes to be this year’s March Madness winner? On Thursday, March 11, our official BBYO Bracket will launch, setting communities up for friendly showdowns with one another.

Your community can win and advance to the next round by getting the most votes on your Instagram poll and completing a 'Member Celebration Check'. The Instagram polls and brackets will drop on @BBYOInsider based off of the schedule below. Your 'Member Celebration Check' must be a new post on your Instagram feed or story (tagging @BBYOInsider and with #BBYOMarchMadness) with an epic ask for a new member or celebration of current members for each round. Game on.
