CARSON CITY, Nevada – As teams take it to the hardwood to determine the best ballers of the NCAA, Travel Nevada is adding its own “colour” commentary to a fun new bracket-busting concept. In this unique take on March Madness, they’re asking for the public’s help to determine which Nevada colour reigns supreme as part of their March Colour Madness contest.
From March 15 through April 4, eight colours inspired by Nevada’s places and spaces will face off, with only one colour earning a popularity slam dunk by becoming Nevada’s 2022 colour of the year. And unlike that “other” March basketball contest, traveling is encouraged during March Colour Madness, so voters can explore and witness in person the many colours that represent the Silver State.
The contest will launch with eight Nevada-inspired hues, with options including “Lady in Red,” reflective of the lush velvet curtains found in the Mizpah Hotel in Tonopah, the “Picon Punch,” a nod to the amber-hued unofficial drink of the Silver State, and “Mountain Bluebird Sky” which pays homage to a combination of Nevada’s crystal blue skies plus its popular state bird.
Nevadans (or those who simply love Nevada and its inspired colour palette) are asked to participate by voting daily for the hue they think should move forward in the contest, starting with Nevada’s Excellent Eight, then the Phenomenal Four, before the final face-off to determine the winner to become Nevada’s 2022 Colour of the Year. The winning colour will be announced on Travel Nevada’s social media channels (@TravelNevada) on April 5.
Round one: March 15-21
Round two: March 22-28 Championship round: March 29-April 4
