World's best granny
Safeway, Inc. and the Washington Apple Commission are sponsoring a contest to find an on-the-go grandmother from the Pacific Northwest whose lifestyle personifies the healthful attributes of Washington state's famous Granny Smith apples.
At the Granny Finale in May, an overall "Search for Granny Smith" winner will be selected. She will be the commission's official "spokesgranny" for the next year, appearing on supermarket posters and traveling the U.S. and Canada to promote apples and healthy lifestyles.
People can also write, in 100 words or less, what makes their nominee special, and send a non-returnable photo to: Granny Smith; 203 Bellevue Way NE, Ste. 162; Bellevue, WA 98004. The deadline for receiving entries is April 4.
