DENVER (KDVR) — A vaccinated Coloradan will become the fourth millionaire in the Colorado Comeback Cash drawing, as Governor Jared Polis announced the latest winner Friday.
Stephanie Sharp is a child psychologist and accepted the check remotely with her entire family from rural Pennsylvania. She was visiting her father for the first time since the pandemic began. Sharp’s husband, Craig, is a local nurse at the VA Medical Center at Fitzsimons.
Colorado is one of dozen states offering $1 million lottery drawings to all residents who have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination. Since information is taken at the time of vaccination, every vaccine recipient is automatically enrolled and eligible for the drawing.
Polis also announced the next round of winners for the scholarship drawing, which awards $50,000 scholarships to five vaccinated Colorado students between the ages of 12 and 17.
