Sponsor an Intellectual

Schools, divisions, departments, and groups can sponsor an Intellectual and encourage their friends and colleagues to vote for their player to advance  through each round and win the tournament. Facebook and Twitter are excellent ways to endorse and promote your player -- and taunt your opponents!  

In addition to bragging rights, the organization that  sponsors the champion will win a basket of breakfast goodies!

Remember, there is absolutely NO COST to sponsor an Intellectual. The deadline to sponsor an intellectual is Mon. April 13th

Check out the 2020 Bracket and make your pick! To sponsor an Intellectual, contact ccfc@duq.edu.
