Are you ready for some football?!?

Starting in September, the Lincoln Parish Journal will hold the Karl Malone Toyota NFL Pick’em Contest presented by 511 and Black Rifle Coffee.

Anyone is eligible to participate and each weekly winner will go home with a $100 cash prize as well as a $50 gift card to one of our many local advertisers. 

Each week the winner will be the participant with the best record out of 10 selected NFL games (ties will be broken by two separate tiebreakers consisting of guessing the total points scored in two of our weekly contests).

Our contest will be conducted for all 18 weeks of the NFL regular season. There is no entry fee, just like there is no cost to subscribe to the Lincoln Parish Journal. 

It takes 20-30 seconds to sign up and not much longer than that to make your picks.

Entries are open now for the first week’s contest picking the winners from NFL Week 1 (Sept. 11). The entries will remain open until 4 p.m. each Friday leading up to that weekend’s games.

One person will win each week’s $100 cash prize plus the $50 gift card, to be announced in the Journal early the following week as the subsequent Pick’em Contest launches.

All contest decisions by LPJ management are final. Weekly winners will be notified Sunday night and are required to take a photo at Karl Malone Toyota that will run in the following week’s LPJ.

Every participant will receive a FREE subscription to the Journal, if you’re not already signed up for the easily-navigated, convenient 6:55 a.m. daily e-mail.
