CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A Central Ohio resident is $1 million richer after winning Wednesday’s third Vax-a-Million sweepstakes.

Mark Cline from Richwood in Union County won the third $1 million prize.

Sara Afaneh from Sheffield Lake in Lorain County won the third student full-ride scholarship including four years tuition, books, and room and board at an Ohio public university or college.

“There are only two more drawings left, so I urge Ohioans to get the shot and then enter for a shot to win a million dollars or, for those aged 12-17 a chance to a four-year, full-ride scholarship including room, board, tuition and books at an Ohio public college or university,” said Gov. Mike DeWine.

3,362,203 Ohioans entered the drawing to win the $1 million prize, and 143,604 Ohioans age 12 to 17 entered to win the drawing for a college scholarship.

The number of entries in both groups increased from the previous week with 136,414 additional adult entries and 10,701 additional student entries.

More than 5.3 million Ohioans have started the vaccination process.

The first Vax-a-Million winner was Greater Cincinnati resident Abbigail Bugenske. Last week, the winner was a Toledo man who said it was the Vax-a-Million contest itself that motivated him to get vaccinated.

There will be two more drawings for the $1 million or full-ride scholarship to any Ohio college after Wednesday’s announcement.

Winners will be announced every Wednesday, with the final announcement coming June 23.
