CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – West Virginia Governor Jim Justice will announce the second set of winners for the second round of the “Do it for Babydog” vaccine lottery Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021.
We will share the winners with you in this story as they are announced. Last week, Justice went around the state with his English Bulldog, Babydog, to surprise some of the winners with their prizes.
This lottery, geared more toward younger West Virginians, includes full-ride scholarship prizes as well as sports cars, boats, funding for a dream wedding, season tickets for Marshall or WVU games, an ATV or side-by-side, ski resort passes, 10 years worth of free gas and lawnmowers.
The deadline to register for the next drawing is 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 19. If you register after this date, you will still be registered for subsequent drawings. The lottery is one entry per person and you only need to register once to be included all subsequent drawings.
The winners for the fourth drawing will be announced Thursday, Sept. 23.
