COVID Vaccination Scholarship Incentive

RCS Families,

Please review this information from the Albany County Department of Health:

The "Get a Shot to Make Your Future" vaccine incentive is a public outreach campaign to increase awareness of the availability and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and provide incentives to New Yorkers 12-17 years of age to get a COVID-19 vaccination.

Parents or legal guardians of any New Yorker, ages 12 to 17, can enter their child who has received at least their first COVID-19 vaccine dose, for a chance to win one of 50, four-year full-ride scholarships (including tuition, fees, room-and-board, and expenses) to any New York State public college or university. 

The drawings will be conducted weekly, for five (5) weeks, beginning on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. Ten weekly winners (for a total of 50 winners) will be announced each Wednesday.
