COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW) — The lucky winners of Ohio’s fifth and final Vax-a-Million drawing were just announced Wednesday evening.
The Ohio Lottery randomly selected the names on Monday, then officials checked to make sure the winners of the $1 million prize and full-ride scholarship were eligible.
Esperanza Diaz, of Brecksville in Cuyahoga County, was the winner of the $1 million prize.
Sydney Daum, of Cincinnati in Hamilton County, won the four-year, all-expenses-paid scholarship.
