flier promoting an opportunity for teens to get involved in a vaccine education campaign

Grants of up to $1,000 are available for groups of teens to develop an awareness campaign to encourage more of their peers to get vaccinated; with a priority on population groups with low vaccination rates. With changes to masking policies, all the more reason to make sure as many people as possible are protected by the vaccine!

Interested groups should start by completing this form as soon as possible! If your application looks encouraging, you will be matched with a coach to help you further develop your project. After 3 to 4 weeks of working on your project, groups will present their plans to a panel of judges. Successful presentations will be awarded up to $1,000 to implement their ideas.
