GM Genius: Teaching Critical Thinking with Fantasy Football

This is sort of a sponsored post, but it's actually more of a "public service announcement" post. This academic program e-mailed us and I found it kind of interesting, so I wanted to let readers know about it.

The How I Decide Foundation, an educational nonprofit focused on youth decision-making, is launching GM Genius, a national college scholarship competition and learning platform based on fantasy football for the 2017 NFL season. Leveraging the tremendous popularity of fantasy football among teens, the competition includes animated videos that teach key decision-making and critical thinking concepts. Students ages 13 to 19 can compete to win $25,000 in college scholarships, weekly prizes, and matching grants for their schools.
