This week’s contest deadline is today

Webster Parish Journal’s Pick’em Contest is coming to a close for the first official week of football.

You have until 4 p.m. today (Thursday) to get in your picks for this week’s games.

Each weekly winner over the life of the contest will be on the receiving end of $100 and have their photo taken at our title sponsor Under Dawgs Sports Grill, the gathering place featuring a home-field atmosphere. 

Anyone 18 and older is eligible to participate. All it takes is an email address and a combination of skill and a little luck. Each week,10 local and area high school football games plus two tie-breakers based on total points of two selected teams will be posted on the Webster Parish Journal. And just like the Journal, there’s no cost to enter. 

Signing up for the contest only takes a couple of minutes. Log on to and follow the instructions.

But hurry if you plan to compete this week.
