Voting Begins in National Collegiate Student Section Association's #LoudAndProud Student Section of the Year Contest

Louisville, Ky. (March 3, 2016) – The National Collegiate Student Section Association (NCSSA) officially launched its 2nd annual #LoudAndProud Student Section of the Year Contest. Fifty-nine schools are participating this year, representing all of the major D1 and D2 divisions. Students can vote once a day through the NCSSA website for the best college or university student section in the country.

The 2015 #LoudAndProud contest was the first of its kind and highlighted the University of Arizona’s ZonaZoo student section as the winner. Over the course of the 2015 contest, more than 30,000 votes were cast. The contest is a way to create further fan engagement and recognize schools that place great emphasis on student sections and the role that they play in a team’s success. SuperFanU, a leading provider of fan engagement programs to schools across the country, is the sponsor of the #LoudAndProud contest.
