It was the first time for Penny Pummill, of Sedalia, to be a judge in the Ag pie contest. “She asked me last year, but I’d just started my Healthy U journey,” Pummill said. The contest had five initial judges followed by four media judges who selected the grand champion pie from the first place winners.
