Show Your Jasper Pride In NCAA 6th Fan Contest
Vote for the Jaspers in the NCAA 6th Fan Contest
INDIANAPOLIS - The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has launched the NCAA 6th Fan contest, an exciting nationwide online competition that will determine which Division I school has the most school pride and supportive fans. Manhattan College fans can learn all the details at www.ncaa.com/6thFan, including how to win great fan prizes and how to help Manhattan College receive more than $100,000 in general scholarship contributions.
Manhattan College fans can begin voting January 7 at www.ncaa.com/6thFan by casting votes directly, or votes can be submitted through ncaa.com to Facebook and Twitter. Fans also can vote directly on Twitter by tweeting or retweeting the #6thFan and #MANHAT hashtags, listed at www.ncaa.com/6thFan.
To make it out of Round 1 in which all 345 Division I schools are competing, Manhattan College must be among the top 16 schools in the fan voting between January 7 and February 16. If Manhattan College makes it to the Sweet 16, it will be awarded $10,000 in general scholarship funds – Manhattan College will have the flexibility to award the dollars to a randomly selected student or to the College’s general scholarship fund.
Once in the 2nd round with other Sweet 16 schools, Manhattan College fans can compete head-to-head with other schools in a single-elimination bracket format between February 17 and February 23.
In the 3rd round, the Elite 8 schools will be matched up head-to-head from February 24 to March 2. If Manhattan College can survive to the 4th for fan votes from March 3 to March 9, with the top two schools competing in the 5th round, it would be among the Final Four schools to compete March 10 to March 16 for the 6th Selection Sunday, March 16, and be awarded $100,000 in general scholarship funds.
The contest also includes prizes for individual fans. An iPad Air will be awarded in each of the five rounds to a randomly chosen fan who votes via NCAA.com in that round. In addition, one randomly selected participant who registers and votes on NCAA.com will win an all-expense paid trip to the 2015 Men’s Final Four in North Texas April 5-7.
