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. Seton Hall fans can learn all the details at www.ncaa.com/6thFan including how to win great fan prizes and how to help The Hall be awarded over $100,000 in general scholarship contributions.
Seton Hall fans can begin voting now 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 hashtag and #SetonHall hashtag, listed at www.ncaa.com/6thFan .
To make it out of Round 1 in which all 345 Division I schools are competing, Seton Hall must be among the top 16 schools in the fan voting by February 16. If Seton Hall makes it to the Sweet 16, it will be awarded $10,000 in general scholarship funds – Seton Hall will have the flexibility to award the dollars to a randomly selected student or to Seton Hall University’s general scholarship fund.
Once in the 2nd round with other Sweet 16 schools, Pirate 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 Seton Hall can advance to the 4th round, it would be among the Final Four schools to compete for fan votes from March 3 to March 9, with the top two schools competing in the 5th round between March 10 to March 16 for the 6th Fan National Championship. The winning school will be announced on 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.
