By entering the Eastern Oklahoma State College #ThisIsOurShot Contest you agree to be bound by these Official Rules:
This contest is open to Eastern Oklahoma State College students (enrolled at Wilburton, McAlester, Idabel or Antlers) actively enrolled for fall 2021 who are fully vaccinated. Those not fully vaccinated at the beginning of the contest may enter at any time once they are fully vaccinated.
Individuals who cannot be vaccinated due to medical conditions or sincere religious objections may fill out the exemption/declination form and also be entered to win prizes. Personal and philosophical reasons for not getting vaccinated are insufficient and will not qualify. Exemptions are not guaranteed. Students must email the completed form to ThisIsOurShot@eosc.edu or take it to the Office of Students Services following the same instructions for uploading vaccination proof.
Fully Vaccinated: To be considered fully vaccinated, a student must receive two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, or receive a World Health Organization approved vaccine.
Students: Actively enrolled students for fall 2021, excluding concurrently enrolled high school students.
The contest begins Aug. 6, 2021 and ends Oct. 31, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. CST. Entries received after 11:59 p.m. Oct. 31, 2021 CST will not be considered for awards, regardless of whether the late receipt resulted from human, computer or transmission error. For individuals receiving the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, both vaccine doses must be administered by the 11:59 p.m. Oct. 31 deadline.
The contest is open to fully vaccinated, current Eastern students actively enrolled for fall 2021. Students may be enrolled and taking classes at the Wilburton, McAlester, Idabel or Antlers locations.
Winning names will be drawn by EOSC staff at regular intervals determined by the college. If a student wins any prize other than the grand prize, the student remains eligible for the grand prize drawing but will not be eligible for any other prize drawings.
There are five $1,000 scholarship prizes available. The scholarship will be applied to the winning student’s account and any remaining funds will be returned to the student.
Winners will be contacted by the Office of Student Services once eligibility has been verified. Their name and prize will be announced publicly on Eastern’s website and social media channels. If a winner does not respond to notification of the win within 14 days, the winner will be disqualified and a new winner will be chosen. Any scholarship awarded is subject to all applicable federal and state laws and may be subject to reduction based upon applicable scholarship or financial aid limits.
