#VaccinatedValencians Receive a Year’s Tuition, Apple Products or Campus Store Vouchers

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

Vaccination against the COVID-19 virus is one of the most effective ways we can protect ourselves and our community, and vaccination statistics show that 19- to 24-year-olds are among the least likely to be vaccinated.

To encourage our students to roll up their sleeves and get the shot, Valencia is awarding 100 prizes ranging from a $250 campus store voucher to a year’s tuition. All fall term Valencia students* were entered in a drawing on Friday, October 1, 2021, and 50 students were randomly selected to win prizes if they were fully vaccinated** against COVID-19. Several students came to the District Office to receive their prizes from College President Kathleen Plinske. A second drawing will take place on Friday, November 12, 2021, and students are encouraged to be vaccinated.

*Employees who are taking classes (except those who are federal or institutional work study students) are not eligible for the drawings.
**If a student is drawn as a winner and has a medical or religious reason for not being vaccinated, upon providing documentation of the reason(s), the student can claim their prize.
