Today, the 36 $10,000 winners of the Take Your Shot, Oregon campaign were announced. One vaccinated individual was selected for each of Oregon’s 36 counties. The winners are as follows:
|Curry||Joseph Nilles Jr.|
|Hood River||Sarah Ownby|
|Linn||Karen Irene Sellers|
Today’s winners are the last to be announced of the Take Your Shot, Oregon campaign, which Governor Kate Brown first launched on May 21 in order to encourage Oregonians to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Governor Brown previously announced the winner of the $1 million prize of the campaign several weeks ago, which went to Oregon State University student Chloe Zinda. You can read more about her story here.
In July, five more Oregonians ages 12–17 were selected as the winners of the five $100,000 scholarship prizes that were up for grabs. The five selected students were also invited to meet with Governor Brown and State Treasurer Tobias Read later this summer at the state Capitol.

On June 22, Governor Brown added four new prizes to the Take Your Shot, Oregon campaign, courtesy of Travel Oregon. The winners of the Travel Oregon prizes are:
|Willamette Valley Region||Elizabeth Raisman|
|Eastern Oregon||Jetty Swart|
|Central Oregon||Mitch Evans|
|Portland Region||Alexandria Swanger|
The four travel prizes are valued at up to $2,000 and included lodging, accommodations, dining and activities for two at iconic Oregon travel destinations.
The Oregon Health Authority congratulates the winners and thanks all Oregonians who’ve chosen to protect themselves and the people around them from COVID-19 by getting vaccinated.
While the Take Your Shot, Oregon campaign has now concluded, the need for vaccination remains. If you haven’t done so already, schedule your vaccine appointment today by visiting Find a COVID-19 Vaccine in Oregon.
