AC contest ends after more than 34 hours


LINCOLN COUNTY (WAOW)--After 34 hours and 50 minutes, the A-C unit contest is finally over.

21-year old Matt Bowen beat out 14 competitors to win the A-C unit.

The contest to win an air conditioning unit started at 11 a.m. Friday at the Lincoln County Fair in Merrill. Contestants had to keep at least one hand on top of the air conditioner at all times, and they were not allowed to sit. Every four hours they received a five minute break.

Custom Design Heating and Cooling is giving away the A-C unit, which is valued at more than $4,000.
