Polis announces 4th round of COVID-19 vaccine sweepstakes scholarship winners

The governor announced five more $50,000 winners as part of Colorado's Comeback Cash Scholarship Drawing.

DENVER — Gov. Jared Polis announced the winners of the fourth round of Colorado's Comeback Cash Scholarship Drawing on Friday afternoon.

Each of the five winners will receive a $50,000 scholarship as part of a public health initiative to increase COVID-19 vaccination rates. This particular program is geared toward youth between the ages of 12 and 17.

The winners this week are:

  • Lindsay, 13, of Denver
  • Anna Gordon, 12, of Aurora
  • Luis Arguello, 15 of Westminster
  • Gerardo Sierra-Nunez, 13, of Westminster
  • Aaron Arada, 16, of Colorado Springs

This was the fourth of five scholarship drawings for youth who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. The winners of the final drawing will be announced next week.

The funds will be placed in a CollegeInvest account for the student to use when they pursue postsecondary education, including higher and technical education or credential programs. The funds can be left in the interest-bearing account for future educational use.

Under the Comeback Cash program, those 18 and older who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 are eligible for five drawings to win a $1 million cash prize. The final winner of that sweepstakes will be announced July 7.
