Each entry receives 200 Homecoming points and “best entry” winners receive cash prizes! If you’re interested in submitting an entry in the parade—there’s still time.
Cheer on the Hoosiers at the Homecoming football game. Two Homecoming Royals will be crowned at halftime, and the Homecoming points contest winners will be announced. Each division winner earns the title and will receive a $200 gift card from Pizza X, so make sure to collect your points throughout the week!
Homecoming Points System
Over the many years of this iconic campus tradition, IU student groups have competed throughout the week in various events in order to earn the title of Homecoming Grand Champion.
There are three divisions: Greek Life, Residence Halls, and Student Organizations. These three groups earn points in specific categories outlined below.
The group with the most points in each division is named that division’s specific champion. Each division winner earns the champion title, and wins a $200 gift card from Pizza X!
From those three division champions comes the overall points Grand Champion of IU Homecoming.
Get involved this year and help your favorite student organization fight to the top! There are chances to earn points throughout Homecoming week. The champions will be recognized on the field during the halftime of the IU Homecoming football game.
