COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake: Public Awareness Campaign Contest

Students have the opportunity to win prizes while helping Chicago reach herd immunity!

The goal of the “Vaccine Uptake Public Awareness Campaign Contest” is to increase motivation to get a COVID-19 vaccine by delivering effective, tailored messages targeted to segments of the population that have higher levels of vaccine hesitancy. We are looking for creative, strategic messages that may help to promote acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines and motivate and mobilize people to get vaccinated.
