Drum roll, please! The Colorado Lottery is excited to announce the 11 recipients of the 2019 Starburst Award.
This unique award recognizes excellence in the use of Lottery proceeds for community and conservation projects.

More than $16.2 million in Lottery funds is represented in these 11 projects. Two of the winning projects were the result of collaboration between neighboring municipalities or national non-profit organizations.
Projects will receive their awards at community events throughout the summer.
