Governor Tim Walz announced that registration is open for parents whose 5- to 11-year-olds have received the COVID-19 vaccine. Minnesotans can enter to win one of five college scholarships in the amount of 100-thousand dollars.
This is all part of the state’s “Kids Deserve a Shot” vaccine incentive program. Any Minnesota parent or guardian whose 5- to 11-year-olds have EVER received BOTH Doses of COVID-19 vaccine by April 11th can enter.
On April 15th, the State will hold a drawing for five of the these 100-thousand scholarships… which will be valid at any public or private non-profit higher educational institution in Minnesota.
This is part of an effort to boost the vaccination rate of our state’s children.
Minnesota is a national leader in vaccinating children ages 5 to 11… but this age group still has the lowest vaccination rate among all eligible residents.
