Ohio Vax-2-School to award $2 million in scholarships

Back to School News      Print News Article

Ohioans ages 12 - 25 who have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine are eligible to enter a drawing for a chance to win a scholarship — including one for $100,000 — to an Ohio college or university for career or technical education.

As part of the Ohio Department of Health’s Ohio Vax-2-School program, Ohio students can win one of 150 $10,000 scholarships or one of five $100,000 grand prize scholarships. They can enter online at www.ohiovax2school.com or by phone at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634).

Ohio Vax-2-School is an opt-in program so those interested must sign up to be eligible for the prize drawings. A deadline to enter and drawing dates have not yet been announced. The Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Lottery Commission will share those details in the coming weeks ahead, allowing as much time as possible for an emergency use authorization (EUA) to be granted for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for those ages 5-11. 

The entry period is now open. To learn more about the initiative or to submit an entry, visit the Ohio Vax-2-School website or call 1-833-4-ASK-ODH.
