GLANDORF – A little pie in the face can go a long way, especially at Glandorf Elementary School.

Last week the school held a pie in the face competition as part of their Red Ribbon activities. Students were given the opportunity to vote who they most wanted to receive a pie in the face by donating money. Dana Brown, who helps coordinate Red Ribbon activities at the school, said they had nine jars out for the voting process.

On Friday the ‘winners’ of the competition were announced during the school’s Red Ribbon assembly. The names drawn included Scott Maag, Laurie Lanwehr and the mystery entry, Glandorf Principal Scott Ketner. Three student’s names were drawn, and they were given the honors of placing a pie of whipped cream in the faces of the two teachers and principal.

Nearly $750 was collected during the competition. The money was donated to the Putnam County Task for Force for Youth that coordinates Red Ribbon activities. Task Force board member Nancy Kline accepted the check.

“You are awesome,” Kline told the students. She said the Task Force for Youth coordinates numerous activities in the county to promote positive choices for youth in the county.
