GM Genius is the first digital learning platform and scholarship competition based on fantasy football. The program includes instructional videos about key decision-making and critical thinking concepts, and tests students’ abilities to apply these concepts in both fantasy football and their daily lives.
The first GM Genius season concluded in December 2017. We received exciting results, and look forward to scaling the program in 2018.
In addition to the main GM Genius competition, there is an optional essay contest at the end of the season.
