It takes all of us to fight COVID-19, and some of the biggest names in Minnesota’s sports and entertainment industries are doing their part by encouraging Minnesotans 12-17 years old to roll up their sleeves and donating prize packages to reward them for getting fully vaccinated.
In addition to the $100,000 college scholarship drawings, all fully vaccinated Minnesotans 12-17 are eligible to enter drawings for Minnesota experiences from the following sports and entertainment venues:
The 'Kids Deserve a Shot’ campaign rewards Minnesota teens for completing their vaccine series and building the broad community protection needed to keep families, schools, and the state safe.
Now is the time for kids to get vaccinated! Not only can teens enter to win rewards, they can also get protection against COVID-19 for the holidays as we all gather with loved ones.
Getting kids fully vaccinated helps keep everyone safe — from grandparents to grandbabies.
There will be five weekly drawings starting on November 19, and ending on December 10. The deadlines for entering the drawings go from November 15 through December 13.

Five- to 11-year-old children are now eligible to get vaccinated for COVID-19. After extensive clinical trials, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for use in children this week.
Minnesotans who’d like to vaccinate their child can visit mn.gov/vaxforkids to view a list of local providers or contact their pediatrician, family medicine clinic, or pharmacy. Vaccines will also be available at school- and community-based sites across the state. Before you go, make sure the provider offers the pediatric version of the Pfizer vaccine.
