A new lineup of rewards has been announced for Minnesota kids who get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Tuesday, Gov. Tim Walz announced that all fully vaccinated 12- to 17-year-olds can enter for a chance to win a variety of prizes, including special experiences with the Minnesota Vikings, Twins, Wild, Lynx, Timberwolves, Minnesota United, St. Paul Saints, Golden Gophers, or events at First Avenue, Como Park Zoo and Conservatory or Wintergreen Dogsled Lodge.

Winners will be selected via drawings across five weeks from Nov. 19 through Dec. 17. Parents and guardians can also enter their children for a chance to win the prizes and a $100,000 Minnesota college scholarship. The first entry deadline for kids to be eligible to receive a $200 Visa gift card is Nov. 9.

"It takes all of us to fight COVID-19, and every shot in the arm is critical to curbing the spread and saving lives," Walz said in a statement. "We need all Minnesotans 12-17 to join us. From first pitch to First Ave, you can win an amazing experience for simply getting fully vaccinated. I am so grateful for our incredible partners in Minnesota's sports and entertainment industries encouraging kids to roll up their sleeves and support our fight against COVID-19."
