The Deseret News' prep Grid Picks contest begins this week, with the opening of the 2008 high school football season. The best picker each week wins $50. Six runners-up each week win Deseret News Grid Picks T-shirts.

This week's games to prognosticate are Timpanogos at Riverton, Highland at Mountain Crest, Clearfield at Cottonwood, Davis at Hunter, Hurricane at Millard, Juan Diego at West, Kearns at Brighton, Logan at Murray, Lone Peak at Bountiful, Uintah at Desert Hills, and Snow Canyon at East. The "tie-breaker" game, where readers guess not only the winner but also the final score, is West Jordan at Lehi.

CONTEST RULES: Ballots are published online each week, Aug. 18 through Oct. 23. Each weekly contest ends at 7 p.m. on Friday. If the contest includes a Wednesday or Thursday game, the contest will end at 7 p.m. the day of the earliest game. You may enter anytime before the deadline.

Only one entry each week per person allowed. A valid e-mail address must accompany each entry; one entry per e-mail address per week. Entrants must be at least 13 years old.

Mark boxes to predict winners. Predict the score and the winner of the weekly tiebreaker game, which counts as one of the 12 games listed each week. Ties will be broken using the score of the tiebreaker game. If that does not resolve ties, a random selection by computer will be used.

Each week the entrant predicting the most games correctly wins $50 and a Grid Picks T-shirt. Six runners-up each week receive a T-shirt.
