LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -After a two month Powerball run, three lucky people walked away with winning tickets, but they weren't the only ones celebrating a victory.
The big jackpot resulted in nearly $2 million in scholarships for students, yet the future is still uncertain.
On Monday, THV11 took a look at the current status of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.
With $500 million up for grabs, this enormous Powerball jackpot sent just about everyone into a frenzy.
But in the two months leading up to it, lottery sales weren't looking promising, putting scholarship awards in limbo.
"Before we had these jackpot runs we were down about 1.8 million dollars versus what our budget was for scholarships," said Bishop Woosley, director of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.
