Stephanie Sharp is the fourth winner of the $1 million prize. Polis' office released the following statement from the Parker resident:
“I’ve been in complete and utter shock since learning I’m Colorado’s fourth Comeback Cash winner. This past year has been challenging for so many people and my heart goes out to those who have experienced hardship. For my family, it's been a tough year, especially as my husband Craig, a nurse at the VA Community Living Center at Fitzsimons in Aurora, was on the frontlines of this pandemic. I want to offer my sincere appreciation to Governor Polis and to the state of Colorado for their efforts in efficiently and equitably distributing the vaccine so we can protect ourselves and each other. I encourage my fellow Coloradans who have not yet been vaccinated to consider doing so as soon as possible.”
Here is the latest round of Comeback Cash Scholarship winners:
- Clara Smith, 17, of Berthoud
- Bay Morrish, 17, of Nederland
- Liza C. of Denver
- Sula Schuyler, 13, of Denver
- Nathan Reseigh, 15, of Boulder
Under the program, first announced in May, the Colorado Lottery will hold a total of five drawings between June 4 and July 7. Anyone 18 and older who is a Colorado resident and has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will be automatically entered if the Colorado Immunization Information System has your records.
Twenty-five college scholarships are being offered, along with a $1 million lottery program for five adult winners who have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
