POMEROY — The Meigs Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) announced the winners of its long-running Mystery Farm and the new “How Many Cans?” contests held during the Meigs County Fair.
The daily winners of the Mystery Farm Contest along with the farm they identified are, as follows: Monday — Jason Pierce, Carol and Joy Clarke Farm; Tuesday — Dennie Hill, Howard and Nancy Ervin Farm; Wednesday — Jason Pierce, John and Sherry Miller Farm; Thursday — Kody Wolfe, Sue Rice Farm; Friday – Phoenix Cleland, Tim and Kenda Lawrence Farm; Saturday — Keri Lawrence, Lawrence and Carolyn Darst Farm.
Winners of the Mystery Farm contest receive $10 each. There were 68 entries throughout the week.
Winners of the hay show co-sponsored by the Meigs SWCD and Meigs County Fair Board were, in order by class: Class 1 (75 percent or more alfalfa) — no entries; Class 2 (all grasses) — Brian Windon and Elizabeth Harris; Class 3 (49 percent or less legumes) — Elizabeth Harris and Brian Windon.
This year, there were four entries for the hay show. Winners received cash awards and ribbons from the fair board. First-place winners will receive plaques from the Meigs SWCD at the district’s annual meeting and banquet on Sept. 25 at Meigs High School.
The winner of the “How Many Cans” contest is Talon Drummer. This contest was to promote recycling and was held for youngsters only who had to guess at the number of crushed cans in a clear plastic container. Drummer will receive $10 for guessing the correct number of cans as 38. There were 157 total entries for the week, but only two entries with the correct answer.
“We want to congratulate all winners and thank everyone who participated in the Meigs Soil and Water Conservation District Contest at the 2012 Meigs County Fair,” said Jenny Ridenour, education coordinator for the Meigs SWCD.
