Knox County, Ill., Wins Two Separate Technology Sweepstakes

What are the chances that both the local elementary school and county government in rural Knox County, Ill., would win grand-prize technology packages in separate national sweepstakes? The probability of winning both contests is 1 in 3,781,875.
