These safe, effective, and life-saving vaccines could give you the opportunity to win $1 million or $50,000 toward postsecondary education.
As part of this public health initiative, the Colorado Lottery will conduct a random weekly drawing on behalf of the Colorado Department of Health & Environment to identify one vaccinated Colorado resident each week to win a million-dollar cash prize. All Colorado residents age 12 and older who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, as determined by eligibility rules, are automatically entered into the drawings.
Drawings for $1 million will be held each week for five weeks, ending with the final announcement on July 7. The drawing will be based on the vaccine records contained in the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS) at 11:59:59 PM Mountain Daylight Time the Tuesday night before the drawing. It can take a few days for information to be entered into CIIS, so you should try to get vaccinated as far in advance of the drawing as possible. The last day to qualify is June 30. The winner of each drawing will be announced on June 4, June 11, June 18, June 25, and July 7.
Comeback Cash Scholarship
Coloradans age 12 to 17 can now win $50,000 toward college tuition or other postsecondary education. Each week for five weeks, five eligible Coloradans will each be selected to win a $50,000 scholarship. Teens who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine may be eligible for the scholarship drawing.
