The Lincoln County Fair is boasting a new fair game. Attendees can actually choose the winner of a brand new roof!

Ryan Ott owns Ott's Development & Construction in Merrill. To celebrate his growing business, he's giving away a new roof to a family in need.

"I see a lot of roofs around town that need to be done and I know it's hard to come up with that expense for a lot of people," Ott explained. "I thought it was just one way I could help out."

Applicants were asked to submit a letter explaining why they or someone they know deserve a new roof. Twenty-seven entries were submitted and judged narrowed the group down to nine finalists. Now fair attendees are being asked to vote. The winner of the new roof will be announced on Sunday. That's the last day of the fair.
