Stink and the World’s Worst Super-Stinky Sneakers by Megan McDonald.
In this book, Stink and his friend enter a contest to win the prize for the world’s smelliest sneaker. Stink meets someone
who actually works using his nose at the competition. He asks Stink to be one of the judges! It means that
Stink can’t enter the contest but he accepts. None of the judges knows whose sneakers are whose. It’s a surprise to all
the judges especially Stink about who has the World’s Super-Stinky sneakers.
Everyone has a pair of stinky sneakers (including adults)! Challenge your friends to a contest to see who has the
sneakers that stink the most! First, read how Stink and his friend made their sneakers the worst ever and try to come up
with ideas of your own that are better than theirs! Then using the materials you assembled, make your sneakers stink!
A pair of old sneakers
Substances that will make the sneakers stink (Use your imagination but NEVER use anything that is dangerous!)
A fence or wall to display the sneakers entered in your contest (ask an adult for permission to use the fence or wall)
One or three judges (an odd number is best so there are no ties in the voting)
A trophy or similar prize for the world’s worst stinky sneaker
Make fliers to announce the contest and hang them up all over the neighborhood.
Then, make your sneakers the ones that stink the most! Bring them to the place where you will hold the contest. Make
sure the judges write their choice of a winner on a piece of paper so that the judging is secret. When the contest is over,
display the sneakers for everyone in the neighborhood to see. If you use a chain link fence, tie the shoelaces on the
fence and let the sneakers dangle. If you use a wall, keep the pairs together by tying the shoelaces together.
Wheew! Displayed together the sneakers really do stink all over!
