Vaccination Scholarship Incentive
GET A SHOT TO MAKE YOUR FUTURE
The ‘Get a Shot to Make Your Future’ vaccine incentive is a public outreach campaign consisting of a series of statewide drawings to increase awareness of the availability and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and provide incentives to New Yorkers 12-17 years of age to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
Parents or legal guardians of any New Yorker, ages 12 to 17, can enter their child who has received at least their first COVID-19 vaccine dose, for a chance to win one of 50, four-year full-ride scholarships (including tuition, fees, room-and-board, and expenses) to any New York State public college or university.
Enter to Win a Full Scholarship
Parents or legal guardians, enter your vaccinated child for a chance to win a full scholarship to any New York Public College or University.
The Marcus Garvey Park Bathroom Construction Saga
I am pleased to report that the construction of the Little League clubhouse building has finally been completed. The construction fence was removed yesterday. The public bathrooms are fantastic. They have air conditioning and heating and are far superior to the bathrooms in almost any other Parks Department comfort station. However, at the request of the Department of Environmental Protection, we are not opening them yet. DEP needs to repair the sewer line in Mt. Morris Park West, and we are waiting to find out when that will happen. It has been my hope that we can open the bathrooms in time for the start of the Classical Theatre of Harlem’s performances on Tuesday evening, but unfortunately that is not clear at this point.
I will try to keep you posted.
