Qualify for prizes

K-State will hold weekly prize drawings for fully vaccinated faculty and staff. Any current faculty or staff member who is fully vaccinated should fill out the vaccination incentive program survey to be eligible for prizes. The university is not able to use data from Lafene Health Center for these drawings. Faculty and staff members only need to fill out the survey once to be eligible for all weeks of prize drawings.
