Today, Louisiana Tech University unveiled its Get Your Shot to Win Big This Fall program, which will award prizes to students who have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“When our students enter the drawing, they will have the chance to win one of several prizes,” said Dr. Dickie Crawford, Associate Vice President for Student Advancement. “We also plan to provide vaccination opportunities on campus for those who have not yet received their shots.”

Among the prizes are tuition and fees for one quarter, a meal plan for one quarter, an Apple iPad Pro, an Apple Watch Series 6, a declining balance credit for campus dining, and a Bulldog Bundle credit for textbooks. As the program progresses, Crawford said he anticipates that more prizes will be added to the list.

“We know that vaccination is the surest way to avoid a serious battle with COVID-19 – especially with the new Delta variant,” said Tech President Dr. Les Guice. “Our students will be big winners when they receive the vaccine, and this program will encourage them to engage in good health and safety measures as we approach the Fall Quarter.”

Prize winners will be drawn beginning Aug. 23, and winners’ vaccination status will be verified after their names are drawn.

“The more members of our campus community who get vaccinated now, the better chance we have at a normal fall quarter,” Guice said.
