Fans are encouraged to vote for each of their favorite nicknames in a four region, 64-team bracket, similar to NCAA's "March Madness." Each week we advance one round, with the coronation of the "Mascot Madness" champion taking place during the IHSA 4A boys basketball championship on Saturday March 19th.
Voting is done exclusively through www.csnchicago.com/MascotMadness. On each regional voting page, official tallies are recorded via Twitter and Facebook. Fans are encouraged to not only vote for their favorite school, but for others in each region as well.
Each week, the voting round opens on Monday at 12:00pm and ends on Thursdays at 4:00pm.

Tri-County Operation Cool program will be celebrating its 19th year supporting local high schools in the area. Tri-County Operation Cool is a local organization that promotes seat belt awareness and safe driving practices to our local teens. Operation Cool currently has 19 high schools participating in the program with approximately 10,000 students from DeWitt, McLean, and Livingston counties. One of the program’s key components is to reward students who follow the rules of Operation Cool: wear your seat belt, make sure that passengers wear seatbelts, no texting while driving, stay in school, and avoid alcohol and drugs. This program is for all high school students, not just those with a driver’s license. We have several prizes and rewards for all selected high school participants at our grand finale event, which will be held on Wednesday May 4, 2016 at Normal Community West High School. Past prizes have included the grand prize of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, laptop computers, iPads, TV’s, Beats headphones, Fitbits, mini-refrigerators, and a variety of gift cards to local establishments. In order to be eligible for these prizes, all students need to submit a signed Student Contract submitted to the HS office before Friday February 5th. Contracts are available in the office. Please pick yours up today!
