Welcome to the NKU Vaccination Incentive Contest. The university wants to celebrate our students, faculty and staff who are already vaccinated, and incentivize those who are still unvaccinated, by offering a range of prizes. To help the campus reach our 80-percent goal, faculty, staff and students who have entered their vaccination records will be eligible for incentives. Administrators are not eligible for these prizes. During the next eight weeks, we will have 1,000 prize drawings of $100 each, followed by a week of grand-prize drawings.
The Vaccination Incentive Contest begins on Monday, August 23, and ends after the last contest drawing during the week of October 18, 2021. During that timeframe, NKU will make 1,000 prize drawings for $100.
