Students: Register to Win a Golden Ticket

(Faculty and staff, please encourage your students to participate in this student-only contest.)


Kent State University is channeling its inner Willy Wonka with the university's latest incentive drawing for students who register their COVID-19 vaccine.

About the Golden Tickets

We’re giving away five Golden Tickets that allow you to park for free during the 2022 Spring Semester in nearly all Kent Campus parking lots. Imagine being able to park in almost any lot you want for as long as you want without fear of getting a parking ticket. 

The drawing is open to all students on any campus.

Since parking is already free on our Regional Campuses and some Kent Campus students don’t need parking, any winner can select a $125 Amazon gift card instead of a Golden Ticket, which equals the cost of a semester student parking pass.

Either way, this prize is golden.

But you can’t win a Golden Ticket if you don’t enter! 

Register to Win

Enter between Nov. 1 and Dec. 20 by registering your COVID-19 vaccine. Winners will be notified and announced in January.

If you already have registered your COVID-19 vaccine, you will be automatically entered to win – no need to re-register.

So get your shot, register your vaccine and soon, you might just be singing, “I’ve got a Golden Ticket!”
