Join in our Global Contest!! How many jelly beans in the jar?


Hi, folks!

My students in China are participating in this contest via WeChat (China’s equivalent to Facebook) to lift our global spirits. If you want to join in, you’re welcome to do so. I’ve also posted on Facebook.

Contest Rules

How many jelly beans are in the jelly bean jar? Tell me your name and your guess. Every guess MUST be different.

If you get me on Facebook, you can check to see other’s numbers.  Otherwise, send me your guess in the website comment or send me an email ( I’ll be sure to tell you of duplicated guesses if they appear.

I’m writing down all entries and on Easter Sunday, I’ll announce the winner and your special prize. The person closest to the number without going over the number is the winner.  (A bit like the Price is Right.)

At present, from China, I have Ms. Wu who has guessed 100 and my student, Claire, guessed 101. Contest starts ………. NOW!!

About connieinchina

I have been in the Asia region for 30 years as an English language teacher. 28 of those have been spent with the Amity Foundation, a Chinese NGO that works in all areas of development for the Chinese people. Amity teachers are placed at small colleges throughout China as instructors of English language majors in the education field. In other words, my students will one day be English teachers themselves in their small villages or towns once they graduate. Currently, this is my 13th year in Luzhou Vocational and Technical College. The college is located in Luzhou city (loo-joe), Sichuan Province, a metropolis of 5 million people located next to the Yangtze River .
