Drawings for $1 million, $10,000 county prizes, $100,000 scholarships, and more Salem, OR—Correction: An earlier version if this release stated that additional county drawings would occur on June 28. Drawings for Take Your Shot, Oregon will begin on June 28 with winners announced in July.
Governor Kate Brown urged Oregonians today to get vaccinated as soon as possible, with less than one week remaining before the first Take Your Shot, Oregon drawing on June 28.
Oregonians 18 and older have the chance to win $1 million or one of 36 $10,000 prizes––with one winner in each county in Oregon. Oregonians age 12 to 17 have a chance to win one of five $100,000 Oregon College Savings Plan scholarships. Oregonians must receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine before the draw date to be entered to win.
“Don’t miss your chance to win $1 million––if you have been waiting to get vaccinated, go get it done today,” said Governor Brown. “It’s never been easier to get a vaccine, so don’t miss your shot to enter. Vaccines are the best tool available to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19. We are so close to hitting a 70% adult vaccination rate statewide, so we can lift health and safety restrictions and return to a sense of normalcy.”
