Five grand prize winners will be announced Friday.

  • Winners can use the scholarships, funded by federal pandemic relief dollars, to attend any Ohio college, university or trade school.

Meanwhile, the state is announcing 150 winners of $10,000 scholarships daily through Thursday on the lottery website, Twitter and Instagram.

Of note: Several winners hail from Franklin County.
