Las Cruces Teen Wins 39th Odor-Eaters, National Rotten Sneaker Contest

This story really does stink and it’s thanks to 12 year old Jordan Armstrong from White Sands Missile Range, Las Cruces, NM.

Jordan Armstrong was the grand prize winner of $2,500 and she beat out people from all across the country. Kids run and play through everything including mud, rain, ect.

Judges look out the outside & inside but most importantly they judge based on the odor. According to one of the judges, Dr. Herz, a smell expert from Brown University, “It’s not enough that the sneakers repel me. They should make me feel faint, or wish I had a clothespin or a gas mask nearby. That’s the kind of stink that takes home the gold.”

Jordan also won a two-night stay in New York City, tickets to the Broadway Show THE LION KING, the Golden Sneaker Award, and a supply of Odor-Eaters products to kick out the odor from her new sneakers. Jordan’s rotten sneakers will also be enshrined in the Odor-Eaters “Hall of Fumes”.
