House Republicans are already two rounds into their second annual New Media Challenge, styled as a “March Madness” bracket tourney reports @Alexis_Levinson at the DailyCaller.com:

The goal of the contest, which was started last year by House Republican Conference Vice Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers, is to get members to use social media tools like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to more effectively engage with constituents and each other. In addition, the contest serves as an incubator for trying out new and innovative ways to use new media.

In addition to following Members advancing in the brackets via Google Docs, you can tap into the conversation through the #GOPNMC hashtag on Twitter. So far the Challenge has yielded 100,000 views on YouTube, 13,000 new followers on Twitter, and a shout-out from Congress on Facebook.
