One name was randomly selected from those that guessed the correct amount. *Students: Stephania Lopez, Braylon Johnson, Kenzie Grant and the winner… Lylah Mauldin! *Staff Members: Amanda Kouvolo, Ainsley Posey and the winner… Katie Patterson! Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated!
