SILVERTON, Ohio – A woman from Silverton in Hamilton County, near Cincinnati, is the first Ohio Vax-a-Million winner.
A boy from Englewood, near Dayton, won the four-year college scholarship.

“We are thrilled that this inspired so many people in Ohio to get vaccinated, and we are thrilled to announce the winners of the first set of drawings,” Governor Mike DeWine said.

The state announced the winner Wednesday night on News 5. Watch the video above for the names of the winners.

Over two million Ohioans entered the draw for a million dollar prize, and 104,386 Ohioans ages 12 to 17 entered the draw for a college scholarship.

Registration for the next Ohio Vax-a-Million draw ends May 30 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
