Akron resident Marc Wildman must be singing a happy tune these days. He was the grand prize winner of a jingle contest sponsored by the Vidalia Onion Committee.
Wildman’s entry featured onion-shaped cartoon cowboys dancing to a tune that exalts the sweet Georgia onion as so good you would "walk a country mile for it."
More than 60 people entered the contest and more than 136,000 voted online to pick a favorite.
Wildman has been a Vidalia onion eater for years and came up with the song with help and encouragement from his wife and son. His prize is a trip to Nashville, Tenn.
