MONTPELIER, Vt. (UPI) -- A 13-year-old Utah girl took home the top prize at a nationwide stinky sneakers competition in Montpelier, Vt. Katharine Tuck took home a golden tennis shoe, $2,500 and a year's worth of Odor Eaters from the National Odor Eaters Stinky Rotten Sneaker Competition, Odor Eaters said in a release on its Web site. Tuck also won a trip to New York and tickets to see "The Lion King" on Broadway. "I'm supportive and I'm so proud, even though she stinks," Tuck's mother, Paula told The Salt Lake Tribune. She said her daughter is "normally really clean" but was able to overcome her neat impulses to keep her feet wallowing in filth. Tuck qualified for the competition by taking home the first prize for foul shoe odors at the 2006 Utah State Fair. Her brother took second place in the competition, the newspaper said.
