And The Gumball Winners Are. . . .

Posted by Laura Losch on November 1, 2008

I bet everyone was excited to hear on the afternoon announcements that the number of gumballs in the jar was 794! Many of you guessed WAY too low! I had some guesses of only 100 gumballs! You needed to use your math skills to estimate the number of gumballs the jar contained. Two lucky winners did just that. The winners were Asher Griffith and Kennia Romero. Asher guessed the exact number of gumballs!!! And Kennia was the closest girl guesser, guessing 786!!! They each won half the gumballs (that’s a lot of gumballs!), a cute tote bag filled with candy, books, and a poster. Congratulations you two! Thank you to everyone who played! We’ll have another guessing game during the spring Book Fair.
