COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW) — The lucky winners of Ohio’s fourth Vax-a-Million drawing were just announced Wednesday evening.
The Ohio Lottery randomly selected the names on Monday, then officials checked to make sure the winners of the $1 million prize and full-ride scholarship were eligible.
Suzanne Ward, of Findlay in Hancock County, was the winner of the $1 million prize.
Sean Horning, of Cincinnati in Hamilton County, won the four-year, all-expenses-paid scholarship.
The lottery said that this week, 3,428,514 Ohioans tried for the $1 million prize, while 150,187 teens (those 12-17) entered to win the college scholarship, numbers both up from last week.
Week four was the first week that Northeast Ohio has not been represented in the Vax-A-Million winnings. Abbigail Bugenske, who graduated from Shaker Heights High School, but now lives in southern Ohio was the first winner.
The second week, Zoie Vincent of Mayfield Heights won the college scholarship and last week Sara Afaneh of Sheffield Lake also won the four years of paid tuition, room and board.
