Virtual Guess How Many Candies Are In The Jar

Get your residents involved in a sweet and lovely contest! Simple contests like this are an easy way to encourage your followers to engage with you on social media so that way your content will be prioritized for them later.

Guess how many candies are in the jar, like Hershey’s Kisses, and be entered to win a prize! All they have to do is take a guess in the comments or you can post to Instagram Stories with the questions function and they can submit their guess that way. Either way works!

The prize doesn’t have to be huge either. It can be as small as a $10 gift card to Amazon, a free appetizer at a local restaurant or an extra perk that you are offering at your community. Just make the prize something that will make people want to join the fun.


  • Fill a large jar with the candy of your choice such as Hershey’s Kisses and snap a picture on your phone!
  • Post the social media square and Instagram story along with your picture to get residents to comment and share their guesses online.
  • In your post make sure to note:
  • How they can enter to win
  • How long you will be accepting guesses
  • When and how you will be announcing the winner.
Once you’ve chosen the winner(s), make sure to post about it on social media so everybody knows!
