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!

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion three years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for four straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
