Register Now for CIT Madness Contest

Faculty and staff can still register for this year’s CIT Madness contest, a free bracket-style competition (modeled after the NCAA’s March Madness) in which participants learn about diverse Catholic intellectuals and vote online for their favorite in each round.

Presented by the Center for Catholic Faith and Culture, voting for the event begins this Friday, March 16. To vote, players must register online.

Once registered, a new link will be emailed to participants for each round of play. Players acquire points for how often they voted and for how often they correctly selected each round’s winning intellectual.

The following are just a few of this year’s intellectuals:

  • Kobe Bryant
  • Dorothy Day
  • Nicole Kidman
  • Immaculee Ilibagiza
  • Sean Connery
  • Jacques Laval
  • Francis Libermann
  • Oscar Romero
  • Jack White.

CIT Madness will conclude on Tuesday, March 27. The individual player with the most points will be announced on Tuesday, April 3, as the grand prize winner of an Amazon Echo Plus.

Updated brackets and survey links are available on the Center for Catholic Faith and Culture’s website.
