PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Oregon’s $1 million COVID-19 vaccine jackpot winner is a fine arts student at Oregon State University.

Gov. Kate Brown handed Chloe Zinda a check on Friday.

Zinda, who is from McMinnville, says she plans to use the money to pay off student loans, pursue her dream as an artist and open her own studio.

There are also $10,000 prizes in each of Oregon’s 36 counties and people between the ages of 12 and 17 have a chance to win one of five $100,000 scholarships.

Officials say the winners will be announced in the coming weeks.
