Weekly Drawings Continue for Vaccine Incentives; Next Drawing Oct. 27 – University of Arkansas Newswire

Mireille Tankoua Sandjong earned a $500 scholarship after receiving a COVID-19 vaccination and signing up for the university’s incentive effort.
Scores of prizes, including $500 scholarships, $100 parking permit credits, $100 bookstore gift cards and Razorback Football tickets continue to be given away each week as part of the university’s vaccination incentive effort. Any student is eligible to win just by getting a COVID-19 vaccination.
Vaccinated students must enter to win to be eligible for incentives that will be awarded throughout the semester. Weekly drawings are held every Wednesday.
$500 scholarship
Razorback Football tickets + parking pass (Mississippi State)
$100 bookstore gift cards
$100 parking permit credits
Additional weekly drawings will be held throughout the semester for COVID-19 vaccination incentives. All vaccinated U of A students who enter are eligible. Currently unvaccinated students can become eligible at any point in the semester as soon as they are vaccinated and have entered to win. Students only need to enter once to be eligible for all of the weekly drawings.
Each week, at least 15 prizes, including three $500 scholarships, will be awarded to vaccinated students who have entered to win. New winning names will be drawn randomly each week. So, the sooner students get vaccinated (and entered), the sooner they become eligible for the weekly drawings. 
Enter to win COVID-19 vaccination Incentives.
Proof of vaccination (defined as one dose of Johnson & Johnson or second dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine) will be required to claim prizes. 
Previous winners are not eligible for future prizes. 
Special thanks to Razorback Athletics, Walmart AMP, Walton Arts Center, TheatreSquared, Faulkner Performing Arts Center, University Recreation, University Bookstore and Chartwells for providing incentives for students. 
While state law prevents mandating it, COVID-19 vaccination is strongly encouraged. Vaccination is our primary means of mitigating the spread of COVID-19.
Let’s get RazorVAXED Razorbacks!
