BATON ROUGE, La. (WGNO) — On Friday, July 30, Gov. Edwards and the Louisiana Department of Health announced the winners in the third round of the Shot At A Million program.
The winners he announced are Stephen Curry and Jacob Ardoin.
Curry and Ardoin were selected in the drawing conducted by the Louisiana Lottery Corporation and overseen by the Louisiana Legislative Auditor on Wednesday, July 28, 2021.
A New Orleans resident, 57-year-old Stephen Curry, won the third $100,000 cash prize as part of the Shot At A Million campaign.
A Lafayette resident, 15-year-old Jacob Ardoin, won the third $100,000 scholarship prize as part of the Shot At A Million campaign.
“Congratulations to both Stephen and Jacob for not only winning this week’s prizes but most importantly for getting vaccinated to help protect themselves, their families and communities,” Gov. Edwards said. “What they have done is so important. With this dangerous fourth surge of COVID-19, we need more Louisianans starting at age 12 and up to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Many of our hospitals statewide are either at or near capacity, many people are getting incredibly sick and deaths continue to rise. It does not have to be this way, and we have the ability to do something about it. This pandemic is largely among the unvaccinated. The best and most effective way we can get a handle on this emergency health crisis is by getting vaccinated.”
Today, July 30, is the last day to enter for the next drawing. The entry window will close at 11:59:59 p.m. CDT. Saturday, July 31 is the last day to enter for the August 6 Grand Prize Drawing.
