Bonus Prize: $100.00 cash prize will be awarded to the team that achieves the highest one week score during the 17 weeks of the Budget Football Contest.

Teams will be divided evenly among each of the divisions.

To determine Final standings, including division and overall prize winners, each team's best 14 weekly point totals are added together and used to rank the teams within each division and overall. The team with the highest total points from its best 14 weeks will rank first and the team with the lowest total points from its best 14 weeks will rank last.

Weekly winners will be determined each Tuesday based on the point totals from the previous Thursday through Monday games. The first weekly prizes will be awarded September 14, 2016, and will be based on games played September 8th - 12th, 2016. The last weekly prizes will be awarded within one week following the week ending on January 1, 2017.

Cash prizes are awarded in U.S. dollars. In the event of a tie, cash prizes will be added together and divided evenly among those who have tied.
