For The First Time Ever ... Kids Everywhere Can Enter Their Fragrant Footware Into the Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest(SM)

Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Odor-Eaters

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever wonder what to do with
 your smelly sneakers?  Well, if you are between the ages of 5-15, don't "sweat
 it" -- enter your fragrant footwear into the famed Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker
 Contest!  That's right, just log onto http://www.odoreaters.com and you will
 "see" but thankfully not "smell" the details.
     This expansion of the Contest onto the Odor-Eaters Web site is great news
 because until now, only kids living near one of the regional contests could
 enter their stinky sneakers into the competition.
     To help kids better understand just how easy it is to enter the Contest
 via information available on the Web site, following are the simple
 directions:
 
     * Log onto the Odor-Eaters homepage at http://www.odoreaters.com and click
       on the Rotten Sneaker Contest link.
 
     * Be sure to read the Official Contest Rules and then print out the entry
       forms.  For kids without Internet access, they may receive Official
       Contest Rules and entry forms by sending a self-addressed stamped
       envelope to Combe Incorporated, Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest,
       1101 Westchester Ave., White Plains, NY 10604. (Vermont and Washington
       residents may omit return postage.)
 
     * Fill out all necessary details and let us know how your sneakers became
       so rank.
 
     * Don't forget to mail us a picture of your sneakers too (we're requesting
       a photo rather than the real thing to avoid being stunned by all that
       stink!).
 
     * Make sure your parent/guardian signs your entry forms and is aware of
       what you are doing (they'll be so excited you are finally doing
       something worthwhile with those "smelly sneaks!").
 
     * All entries must be postmarked no later than October 31, 2001.  A panel
       of judges will select the top 10 entries (5 entries from kids 5-10 and
       5 entries from kids 11-15).  These entrants will be contacted, and they
       will need to send their rank and dank sneakers to the makers of
       Odor-Eaters(R) products.  Odorologists will "sniff" out two Grand-Prize
       Winners!
 
     The winners will be eligible to go nose-to-toes with local finalists from
 all around the county to compete in the Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest
 planned for March 2002 in Montpelier, Vermont (a.k.a. Rotten Sneaker Capital
 of the World).  The approximate retail value of each grand prize is $2,500.
 There, they will have a chance to compete for "fortune" -- a U.S. $500 Savings
 Bond, "jewels" -- "the golden sneaker award," a year supply of Odor-Eaters
 insoles (to help them "kick out" odor and wetness) and enshrining their
 sneakers in the Odor-Eaters Hall of Fumes.
      "Putting details and entry forms for the Contest on the Web site will
 provide an opportunity for all odor-challenged kids across the country to join
 in the fun," said Dr. Herbert "Buddy" Lapidus, inventor of Odor-Eaters.  "We
 know that there are lots of smelly feet out there, since all the Odor-Eaters
 insoles sold over the last 25 years, if laid toe-to-heel, would encircle the
 earth more than twice."
     No purchase is necessary to enter the Contest.  The Contest is open to
 legal U.S. residents who are 5-15 years old.
     Odor-Eaters(R) Odor-Destroying(TM) Insoles are formulated with super-
 activated charcoal and Arm & Hammer(R) brand baking soda to destroy foot odor
 and absorb wetness for up to six months.  Odor-Eaters(R) products feature an
 assortment of insoles, powders and sprays to meet the needs of foot odor and
 wetness sufferers.  Visit http://www.odoreaters.com for general information.
