Ohio announced two more Vax-a-Million winners Wednesday night: Suzanne Ward from Findlay in Hancock County won $1 million and Sean Horning from Cincinnati won a college scholarship.

Wednesday marks the fourth time Ohio has given away $1 million to a vaccinated adult and a four-year college scholarship to a vaccinated child age 12 to 17.

The winners were selected Monday at the Ohio Lottery Commission offices in Cleveland. The drawing was conducted by a random number generator and observed by a member of the Ohio auditor's office. The Ohio Department of Health then verified the winners had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

This week’s drawing included 3,428,514 adult entries in the drawing for $1 million; another 150,187 Ohioans age 12 to 17 entered the drawing for a college scholarship. That was an increase of 66,311 adult entries and 6,583 scholarship entries from the previous week.
