Pete Vegas of Boulder is the latest vaccinated Coloradan to win $1 million.

“Today, I had the pleasure of giving away $1.25 million dollars in prizes to Coloradans throughout our state just for getting vaccinated. There are so many good reasons to get vaccinated, whether it's to see family or to go to a baseball game, or to protect yourself and those you love,” said Governor Polis.

“There are still two more opportunities to win $1 million and 15 more chances to win a scholarship if you are between 12 and 17 years old. If you are not yet vaccinated, now’s the time to get this lifesaving vaccine. Who knows, you can be our next $1 million or scholarship winner.”

Governor Polis also announced the next round of Comeback Cash Scholarship winners. They are Sabine Manske (17) of Littleton, Hannah Blackman (17) of Golden, Levi T of Boulder, Brady Roland (16) of Arvada, and Zen Ottensen (17) of Parker.

There are still two more chances for Coloradans to win $1 million as part of the Colorado Comeback Cash drawing. Coloradans 18 and older who have received the vaccine will be automatically registered to win. Winners will be announced June 25, with the final winner being announced on July 7. Coloradans must be vaccinated by June 30 to qualify to win on July 7.

Younger Coloradans ages 12 to 17 are also eligible for the Colorado Comeback Cash Scholarship drawing. Five eligible Coloradans will be randomly selected to win a $50,000 scholarship each week for three weeks. Drawings for the Comeback Cash Scholarship will occur on Mondays and winners will be announced later in the week, with the last drawing announcement revealed by July 9.
