The Star Tribune covered LeadMN's call for Minnesota colleges to do more to educate students about the COVID-19 vaccine. 

The community college student association LeadMN asked Malhotra on Monday to develop vaccine outreach plans for each system college and university. LeadMN also urged the chancellor to use federal COVID-19 relief funds to pay students to promote vaccination to their peers, and to reward vaccinated students with a $250 scholarship.

"This financial incentive can help motivate students that are on the fence about receiving the vaccine as long as it is complemented with a public education effort," LeadMN President Axel Kylander said.
