COLUMBUS, Ohio (WPTA21) - The second deadline in Ohio’s “Vax-2-School” program -- which encourages COVID-19 vaccination for those ages 5 to 25 -- is Sunday.

Those in that age group who have received vaccination are eligible for a chance to win a portion of $2 million in prizes. The prizes include 150 scholarships for $10,000 and five grand prize scholarships for $100,000.

The program has a series of registration deadlines, and to be eligible for all prize drawings, Ohioans were urged to register as soon as they received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Ohio Vax-2-School prize scholarships are awarded in Ohio 529 College Advantage plans and can be used at Ohio colleges, universities, technical/trade schools or career programs.

The winners will be announced each day from Nov. 29 to Dec. 3 on Twitter and Instagram at @ohiovax2school.
