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 third weekly drawing occurred on Monday, Sept. 27. The full list of prizes and the winners' units included:
- $50 K-State Student Union gift cards went to employees in the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Veterinary Medicine, Housing and Dining Services, the Office of Institutional Equity, the Budget Office, Human Capital Services and the K-State Salina Aerospace and Technology Campus.
- An Apple Watch went to an employee in the College of Veterinary Medicine.
- An Apple MacBook Pro went to an employee in the College of Arts and Sciences.
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.
