“This is a lifesaving and now possibly life-changing opportunity,” said Gov. Beshear. “You can get your shot of hope and then enter for a shot at $1 million or a shot at one of 15 full scholarships – both protecting you from this deadly virus and possibly transforming your future.”
Ohio has its Vax-a-Million incentive, which awards winners $1 million or a four-year scholarship to a state university or college if under the age of 18.
