NOW…about the contest… To be eligible for the contest, a student will need to receive at least one vaccine, meningococcal vaccine, between 4-1-11 and 5-31-11. The student will need to take proof of the meningococcal vaccine received to the school nurse by 10:00 AM on 6-1-11. The school nurse will then enter the student in the contest. The student will have 2 entries for having received the meningococcal vaccine.
Additionally, if the student receives a Tdap and/or a HPV vaccine between 4-1-11 and 5-31-11, he/she would receive one entry for each when the record is provided to the school nurse. A student receiving all 3 vaccines would be entered 4 times.
Again, to enter, the student will need to provide the school nurse with a record of vaccines received between 4-1-11 and 5-31-11and one of those vaccines must be meningococcal vaccine. Records of vaccines received are due to the school nurse by 10:00 AM on June 1, 2011. Later that day a school system administrator will select 3 winners: • A fifth grade winner of an ipod • A middle school winner of an ipod • A high school winner of a laptop Parent(s) of each winning student will be notified.
On the following day or so, the superintendent or another administrator will visit the school of the each winner and present the winner with his/her ipod or laptop. The student will be unaware that he/she has won until he/she is presented with the prize. SURPRISE!! We will then take a picture of the winner with his/her prize for the local newspaper.

The electromagnetic frequencies coming off computers is just as bad for you... A habit I've been trying to break. The energy drain is quite noticeable. DNA mutations and that sort of stuff are also claimed.
It's destabilizing the body, then a battle for your awareness... That's the modus operandi.

Repulsive, no! Stupidity, yes!. What a waste of money. School resources are stretched everywhere and the money could be used better elsewhere in the education system. The target group in this are old enough to make up their own minds whether they want it or not.
This is just "babying" them. If they want it they should be able to get it! If they don't, explain the consequences to them. If they still decide not to get the vaccination and they catch the disease well it is on their head. Let them take some responsibility in their life and let them risk the consequences if they want! That is treating them like adults! That is what freedom of choice is!
