Cayuga County teen wins SUNY scholarship as part of COVID vaccine contest

A Cayuga County teen was among those who won the most-recent round of scholarships being handed out by the state as an incentive to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

James Robinson IV, a Cayuga County resident was announced as a winner on Wednesday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.


“Getting vaccinated is the key to our success defeating COVID-19 and restoring the economy, and this extraordinary incentive for the state’s young people has helped us put shots in arms across New York,” Governor Cuomo said. “This life-changing opportunity has helped us spread the word to an important demographic—12- to 17-year-olds—about the importance of getting vaccinated. I congratulate this week’s winners and look forward to seeing them thrive in our state.”

Winners receive a full scholarship to any New York public college or university, including tuition, room and board, and expenses. New York State administered the random drawing and selected 10 winners a week over five weeks.
