This year's dates

The timeline for the 2023 Manie Musicale is as follows:

  • teacher registration (to get your school on the participant map) is from December 1, 2022 to February 28, 2023

  • have students complete brackets by February 28, 2023; these are their predictions of who will win (teachers keep track of their own students' brackets; there is no national entry system for individual students)

  • voting begins on Wednesday, March 1st (from our voting page; link ABOVE)

  • voting opens at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time

  • each vote/matchup goes over two days (Monday/Tuesday, Wednesday/Thursday, Friday/Saturday)

  • teachers will have access to the results page, including reveal videos

  • voting ends the day after the men's basketball championship ends - April 4, 2023

  • for a breakdown of which matchup goes with which dates, see our VOTING PAGE

  • students will vote individually on the site (if they do not have their own devices, you may submit one class vote)

Note that we follow the actual NCAA Men's College Basketball March Madness dates. We extend votes over two days to allow for teachers in various timezones and with alternating day schedules. Unfortunately, we cannot account for each individual school's vacation time. Do your best to play along in whatever way works for you. Merci!
