 Congratulations to AMBER MORRIS of Shreve, Ohio as she was spot on and the ONLY person to correctly guess the correct number of 135 pieces of Bit 'O Honey candy AND answer correctly the tie breaker question at our guessing contest at the 2016 Wayne County Fair! Runner up was James Vaugh whom also guessed 135, but failed to guess at the tie-breaker question.      The tie-breaker question was: 2016 Fair Guessing Contest "In the Honey Bee colony, there are 3 social orders of bees: The Queen, and what are the other two?" The correct answer  was: Worker and Drones. Amber got both of those correct - and she is our WINNER of the $30 gift card to Bob Evans Restuarant! Thanks to everyone that stopped by to visit and tried at the contest...(There were over 510 guesses this year). We hope to see you again next year!
