CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The fourth winner of Ohio’s Vax-a-Million scholarship sweepstakes is from Cincinnati.

Sean Horning, 17, won the fourth student full-ride scholarship including four years tuition, books, and room and board at an Ohio public university or college.

Horning will turn 18 on June 19.

He is a graduate of Colerain High School, where he played hockey and baseball.

Suzanne Ward from Findlay in Hancock County won the fourth $1 million prize.

The first Vax-a-Million winner was Greater Cincinnati resident Abbigail Bugenske.

The second was a Toledo man who said it was the Vax-a-Million contest itself that motivated him to get vaccinated.

The third was a Central Ohio resident.

Just one drawing remains after Wednesday night. The final announcement will take place on June 23.

The entry deadline for the final drawing is June 20, 2021 at 11:59:59 p.m.

“With one Ohio Vax-a-Million drawing remaining, I urge Ohioans who have yet to get the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated and continue Ohio’s progress moving beyond this pandemic,” said Gov. Mike DeWine.

3,428,514 Ohioans entered the drawing to win the $1 million prize, and 150,187 Ohioans ages 12 to 17 entered the drawing for a college scholarship, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

The number of entries in both groups increased from the previous week, with 66,311 additional adult entries and 6,583 additional student entries.
