MONTPELIER, Vt., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Even the panel of "odor specialists" resisted the urge to cover their noses as pungent smells emanated from the smelliest sneakers in this year's Annual National Odor-Eaters® Rotten Sneaker Contest®. Ready to be judged, eight kids, ages six to fourteen from across the country have arrived in Montpelier today, selected as national finalists, wearing the decrepit and odorous rubber-soles that won them regional recognition.
In its 38th year, the National Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest is the ultimate test of just how dirty and stinky sneakers can get when they're part of an active kid's life, going where they go, through puddles, mud and all. Sneakers are judged on the conditions of the sole, tongue, heel, toe, laces or velcro, eyelets/grommets, overall condition and most important ODOR, by a panel that includes NASA "Master Sniffer" George Aldrich, Chemical Specialist for NASA space missions, and Rachel Herz, Ph.D., a professor at Brown University and author of The Scent of Desire and That's Disgusting.
This year, Casey was the grand prize winner of $2,500, out-stinking other contestants from:
Chugiak, AK, Lithia Springs, GA, Grand Blanc, MI, Palatine, IL, Las Cruces, NM, Pleasant Grove, UT and Montpelier, VT
The Champion confessed that her sneakers got dirty and smelly because she wears her sneakers cleaning out her chicken coop, usually several times a day. She walks her dogs at a local dog park and wears them on her feet rain or shine.
She also received an all-expense paid trip to New York City to see the Broadway show "Wicked", the Golden Sneaker Award, a trophy, and a supply of Odor-Eaters products to kick out the odor from her sneakers. Although the maker of Odor-Eaters® products sponsors the contest, it's clear that the contestants keep the product far from their worn and torn warriors submitted for judging.
Casey's sneakers will also be enshrined in the Odor-Eaters® "Hall of Fumes" in Montpelier, VT.
