College scholarships still available for Md. teens who get COVID-19 shot

September 1, 2021

Maryland is almost done distributing $1 million in incentives for youngsters to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Every 12- to 17-year-old in the state who’s gotten at least one shot is automatically eligible for a chance to win a $50,000 college scholarship. “We still have four more scholarships to draw next Monday, Labor Day, and we’re really urging everybody 12 to 17, ‘Go get your shot this week, so that you’re eligible for the drawing on Monday,’” Maryland Secretary of Health Dennis R. Schrader said.
