Bristol girl has nation's stinkiest sneakers
An 11-year-old Bristol girl, Trinette Robinson, has apparently won the 35th annual National Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest held today in Montpelier, Vermont, according to WCAX. She told reporters she got her sneakers dirty playing hard in Girl Scout camp and doing community walks for charity. Last spring, she won the stinkiest sneakers contest at the Imagine Nation, earning her the right to compete in the national showdown. The winner receives $2,500.00 prize money, a trip to New York City to see a Broadway show, the golden sneaker award, a year's supply of much-needed Odor-Eaters products and will have her sneakers enshrined in the Odor-Eaters Hall of Fumes. Update at 11 p.m. Tuesday -- Here is the Press story about it, which I didn't write.
