Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance sponsored the doughnut eating contest and Fingerhut Bakery provided the goods at the Starke County 4-H fair on Monday. The contestants were divided into two categories based on age; 13-35 in one and 36+ in another.
Contestants were presented with five glazed doughnuts, the first three from each category to finish stood up and advanced to the final round.
The six contestants were given three more doughnuts each and the first one to finish from each group was the victor.
The winner from the 13-35 category was Jared Draper and Chandler Lamb was the runner-up. Bob Klinedinst was the champion in the 36+ age division and Ozzy Mann and Mike Keller were the runner-ups who finished simultaneously.
The winners and runner-ups received more than just belly aches and walked away with commemorative T-shirts and cash prizes.
