The University of Arkansas’s vaccination incentive program has so far rewarded 330 students for being vaccinated against COVID-19.
The program was launched in early August to encourage vaccinations this semester. Prizes include $500 scholarships, $100 parking permit credits, $100 bookstore gift cards and dining gift cards, football tickets, backpacking and canoe trips, and vouchers to upcoming performances at places like Walton Arts Center, Walmart AMP and TheatreSquared.
Any student is eligible to win a prize by getting a COVID-19 vaccination. Students only need to enter once to be eligible for all of the weekly drawings. New winning names are drawn randomly each week.
The weekly drawings are held every Wednesday. The next drawing is scheduled for Dec. 8.
