Search for the Greatest Grandma

   Safeway, Inc. and the Washington State Apple Commission are sponsoring a contest to find an on-the-go grandmother from the Northwest who personifies the healthful attributes of Washington state's famous Granny Smith apples.

   At the Granny Smith Finale in May, an overall Search for Granny Smith winner will be selected. She will be the apple 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. The winning grandma will also be able to bring a companion on the trip, all expenses paid.

   People can write, in 100 words or less, what makes their nominee special, and send a non-returnable photo to: Granny Smith; 227 Bellevue Way NE, PMB #163; Bellevue, WA 98004. The deadline for receiving entries is April 7, 2000.
