— Genesee County Parks and Recreation Commission will host the Michigan Odor Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest on Aug. 14, from 2-3 p.m. at Bluebell Beach Bathhouse.
The Michigan Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker contest is the ultimate test of just how offensive sneakers can get when they’re not taken care of properly.
Sneakers are judged on the conditions of the sole, tongue, heel, toe, laces or Velcro, eyelets/grommets, overall condition and most important ODOR.
To enter the contest, children must be between the ages of 5 and 15 years old and they must wear their naturally worn and torn sneakers. The cost to participate is free.
Registration begins promptly at 1 p.m. on Aug. 14 at Bluebell Beach Bathhouse. Adults must accompany children. This contest is limited to the first 25 registered children.
The winner will receive $200 in cash, the golden sneaker award, a merit certificate and a basket of Odor-Eaters® products.
For more information on this contest, please contact Katie Bennett, Recreation Programmer, at 810-241- 0684. Bluebell Beach is a facility of Genesee County Parks and Recreation and is located at 5500 Bray Rd., Flint. — G.G.
