LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 14, 2020) — Filling out the daily health screening not only helps the University of Kentucky keep the campus community safe, now it also means students can win prizes.

The Cats Above 90 Daily Screening incentive is underway.

Monthly drawings will be held to reward students who have a high compliance rate for completing the daily health screening.  Each month, students who have 90% compliance or higher will be entered into a random drawing.  A total of 50 prizes will be given away each month — 20 nylon hammocks, which are good to use in the hammock gardens across UK’s campus, and 30 $5 gift cards for coffee.

The first drawing will take place in early October and will be based on September’s daily screening data.  The next drawing will cover October screenings, and the final drawing will be based on November data up until Thanksgiving break.

Watch for more information on UK’s social media and keep filling out that daily screening to keep each other safe and win great prizes!

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
