Welcome to the 2022 Corn Monument Fan Favorite


The corn monument, built by engineering students and placed on the Pentacrest, has been a University of Iowa Homecoming tradition dating back to 1914. We have found photos of 62 of these monuments and now you have a say on which one you like best! Each one is a snapshot into the current events on campus and around the world at the time they were created.

Voting for the first round ends Monday, Oct. 10, at 8 a.m. and a champion will be crowned at the start of Homecoming. Vote now and follow us on Twitter to keep up to date on the winner of each round!

The seeding of the monuments into brackets was chosen using a random number generator and the regions were also random. You are able to vote for your favorite in each of the matchups for all the regions.
