Gov. Polis announces first winners of Comeback Cash scholarships

DENVER (KRDO) -- Gov. Jared Polis is announcing the first five kids who will win $50,000 scholarships just for getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

The drawing is part of the state's effort to increase turnout for the COVID-19 vaccine. Twenty-five winners aged 12-17 will win $50,000 scholarships, and five Coloradans will win $1 million cash. The first winner of $1 million was announced last Friday, and the drawings will be held weekly through June.

The first winners announced Thursday were:

  • Natalie, no last name given - Centennial
  • Liam Atkins - Boulder
  • Gabriella Sleight - Littleton
  • Arianna Garcia - Longmont
  • Brett Cheney - Grand Junction

One of the original winners was Thomas of Steamboat Springs, but he said during the news conference that he had a full-ride scholarship available to him, so he made his winning scholarship available to another vaccinated teen.

Polis added that the $50,000 will be in an investment account, so it will grow over time before it's used.

  1. Sad that they are pushing a shot on kids who do not need it and are at no risk. Why would you do that?

  2. Let me explain, please bear with me.
    A key element of the psy-op is occurring outside of the medical realm. It is a mental virus being spread in classrooms, promoting racism, injustice and unconscious compliance, all couched in terms that indicate their opposites. People so indoctrinated are now occupying key positions in government, corporations and society, like an invading army slipping-in under cover of generational gradualism. That gradualism drifts from bedrock moral precepts through moral-relativism’s downward-wending way. To resist this psy-op, it must be seen for what it is, but the acuity needed to make those determinations is under systematized assault.

    The net effect is a divide-and-conquer program. Various wedges are being driven into societies, families and friendships. False enmities are created to blind many against their real, common foe. We can clearly see this wedging action applied across life’s spectrum; the most insidious is to define a man as simply a biological machine—something primarily material. This has the effect of driving a wedge between one’s physical existence and his/her own higher faculties of consciousness. Such a person is being set-up for the “bio-digital convergence” as a controllable, functional unit in a technocratic vision. That vision seeks to replace everything life-supporting with an inferior technological surrogate. We see this with food, health, environment and in all the realms of mind that they seek to replace with programmed implants. Instead of the miracle of sunlight, water, air, earth and life’s spark all chemically combined into our various sustenances, they see lab-made substitutes. Instead of the struggle for transcendent Self-discovery, they see the download of trans-humanist operating systems.

    That anyone can see through this attack is a sign of hope. The powers that sustain us are beyond the ken of technocratic tyrants. If we rise to those levels, they cannot. “Survival” literally means “to live above”; that we must.


    I honestly think that those who have taken the jab are, in some way, quelling their deep-down fears of the jab by bringing other people along with them. I know there must be a term from psychology that defines this. (If someone knows it, please tell me.) They used to say “misery loves company” but that doesn’t quite fit the bill. It’s either that or they are just as evil as those who initially hatched this plan and have unabashedly joined “the dark side.” I can’t imagine having to live with the fear that any moment the spike protein will start attacking me and take me out in a matter or minutes or days with virtually no hope of survival. It just goes to show how powerful peer pressure can be. The more the truth comes out, the more fear will creep into their minds, until they will start to go bonkers. And so, we are dealing with physical AND psychological illness. I believe wholeheartedly what Dr Sherri Tenpenny said recently, “Faith and fear do not go together.” I will keep my faith with God and not be fearful!

  4. Deep within the human subconscious is the bloodlust to kill, that is accessed through rhetoric, propaganda, delusion, self-aggrandizement, deception, lies, various modalities of intervention (such as drugs, vaccines, GMO’s & psychological exploitation) & fearmongering, et al, for which, manifest today in numerous behaviors as the world is witnessing currently with this “plandemic” fraud. The most common manifestation of this dark & destructive affliction is the pervasive expression of the desire of “being right”. The satanic malignant messianic megalomaniacs in most positions of influence & power today are convinced that they are “right”, “superior” & “justified” in all of their nefarious & insidious agendas such as this “plandemic”, “climate change”, “experts”, “equality”, “diversity”, “cultural appropriation”, “victimhood”, “white man bad”, “CO2 bad”, “masculinity bad”, “two genders bad”, “families bad”, “freedom bad”, “truth is what ‘I’ say it is”, “racism”, “no one left behind”, “government intervention”, “BLM”, “ANTIFA”, “social justice”, “feed the world”, “save the whales”, etc., etc. The fear porn never ends…..until people find their personal sovereignty & self respect.

    1. I am reading what you wrote.
      no formatting on WordPress.
      many truisms to consider BUTT you come off harsh.
      I am not put off by harshness but some people will stop reading or never read because harshness puts them off.
      Otherwise- good info-people can google as I will.
      But I lean already towards a lot of your thinking- especially the bribing and the fear-mongering and is there an agenda almost too big to realize its all connected?

  5. the bribingis like nothing ever recorded in “vaccine history” even though this is not a real vaccine. It should remain EUA until 2 years have gone by-the minimum that was the standard for every other protective “injective” thESE ARE NOT VACCINES.Vaccines prevent you getting the target disease or letting it replicate and shed contagiously.This “shot” does neither. And there is no help for people who suffered serious adverse reactions or even death.
    After 2023 we will know the true effects of this shot.It has not been tested on animals which is usually a requirement to get FDA approval.

    some of the history of attempts to make a coronavirus vaccine:
    After 2000, scientists made many attempts to create coronavirus vaccines.
    For the past 20 years, all ended in failure because the animals in the clinical trials got very sick and many died, just like the children in the 1960’s.
    In 2004 attempted vaccine produced hepatitis in ferrets
    In 2005 mice and civets became sick and more susceptible to coronaviruses after being vaccinated
    In 2012 the ferrets became sick and died. And in this study mice and ferrets developed lung disease.
    In 2016 this study also produce lung disease in mice.
    The typical pattern in the studies mentioned above is that the children and the animals produced beautiful antibody responses after being vaccinated.
    The manufacturers thought they hit the jackpot.
    The problem came when the children and animals were exposed to the wild version of the virus.
    When that happened, an unexplained phenomenon called Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) also known as Vaccine Enhanced Disease (VED) occurred where the immune system produced a “cytokine storm” (i.e. overwhelmingly attacked the body), and the children/animals died.

    1. Excellent response..thanks for your info. Yes…it is harsh because what are we going through? Harsh times are more prevalent now than ever. As you know…it’s a choice if they do or do not read it. Some will…some won’t. Bottom line…you did and when others do…it may be a wake up call. My hope!

  6. So fun to frolic in someone else’s money. Polis just LOVES throwing it around.
    Meanwhile, a lot of State employees have been furloughed without pay because Polis told them the budget shortfall was too great. What a tool…

    1. Oh it’s from different funding, don’t ya know. Why let state employees pay their bills when we can give out random scholarships?

  7. Hey Poll Azz,

    Who makes the decisions that only “Front Range” kids get (qualified) for such scholarships? There are plenty of lower income families on the Colorado West Slope that NEED assistance more than the Richie Rich kids in YOUR WORLD. Speaking of the West Slope, kids in Rifle COLORADO (ya know, COLORADO) could use scholarships, but that is the HOME of the most level headed Congressional Representative Colorado has.

    A hit Bi-Azz there Poll-Azz????

    1. The cash only goes to those communities who had an acceptable level of voter turnout and votes for Polis. The rest of you can all go to HE77

    2. Where does it say Front range kids only. One was in Grand Junction (west slope) and another in Boulder. That is not front range.

  8. Again why use this to have kids get a shot they don’t need. After many adverse reactions in europe….look what their headlines say..
    “Germany’s Standing Vaccination Commission (STIKO) has issued a recommendation stating that only children and adolescents with certain preexisting health conditions should be vaccinated against coronavirus.”
    Here we are trying to bribe people with money to get their kids the shot or take it themselves. How much more unethical can you get?
