Submitted by Division of Communications and Marketing
Kansas State University faculty and staff can win prizes — including Apple Watches, Apple MacBook Pros, K-State Union gift cards and more — by getting the COVID-19 vaccination.
Every week the university draws names of faculty or staff members who meet the following requirements:
- Have been fully vaccinated or have completed their first dose of a two-dose series with the second dose scheduled.
- Have filled out the vaccination incentive program survey.
Weekly prize drawings will continue every Monday through Nov. 22. A list of prizes by level is available on the K-State COVID-19 website.
The first weekly drawing occurred on Monday, Sept. 13. The full list of prizes and the winners' units included:
- $50 K-State Student Union gift cards went to employees in Parking Services, College of Agriculture, Division of Information Technology, K-State Olathe, Office of General Counsel, College of Arts and Sciences, Human Capital Services and Housing and Dining Services.
- An Apple Watch went to an employee in the College of Agriculture.
K-State also is offering a COVID-19 vaccination incentive program for students.
Vaccination is the best protection against COVID-19. K-State continues to strongly encourage all students, faculty and staff who can receive a COVID-19 vaccine to do so.
