INDIANAPOLIS - GW fans can show their #RaiseHigh pride in the NCAA's exciting #6thFan online competition and earn prizes for themselves and general scholarship contributions for the George Washington University.
The NCAA has launched the 6th Fan contest, an exciting nationwide online competition that will determine which Division I school has the most school pride and supportive fans. GW fans can learn all the details at www.ncaa.com/6thfan, including how to win great fan prizes and how to help George Washington University be awarded over $100,000 in general scholarship contributions.
GW fans can vote once per day by casting votes directly at www.ncaa.com/6thFan, or voting to the NCAA through Facebook and Twitter. Fans can vote directly on social media by posting, Tweeting or Retweeting the #6thFan and #GWASH contest hashtags (full school listings found at www.ncaa.com/6thFan).
To make it out of Round 1 in which all 345 Division I schools are competing, GW must be among the top 16 schools in the fan voting between January 7 and February 16. If GW makes it to the Sweet 16, it will be awarded $10,000 in general scholarship funds.
Once in the 2nd round with other Sweet 16 schools, GW 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 GW can survive 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.
