Reynoldsville, PA – After a fun weekend in Reynoldsville with the annual Red White and Blueberry Festival, some students are walking away with cash prizes… and blue noses.
On Saturday, kids competed to see who could finish a half a blueberry pie the fastest. Tashanna Bowker took first place with $100, Eli Redmond came in second with $75, and Max Hoogeveen came in third with a prize of $50.
All the other contestants got a little bit of spending money in the pockets though, a crisp $5 bill for their efforts. Pies were donated by Mike’s Bilo, and the Reynoldsville Historical Society donated the cash prizes.

Ashley Stewart and Joseph Sawey received the Reynoldsville Community association’s annual scholarship grant.
The community association also honored Jack Price for starting the festival. His wife, Donna, spoke about his involvement.
They’re already planning for next year. So if you’d like to be a part of it, consider going to the RCA meetings, which are generally held on the second Thursday of the month at the office of JD Ryan.
