Pig Race at Startown Elementary School, N.C. Jan. 2005
Students at Startown Elementary in N.C. were awarded fuzzy, mechanical pigs as prizes in a school funding-raising project. A race was then held of all the students' pigs -- the winner would receive a $100 prize. This is the story of Squealer, Laura's pig, which was altered by Laura's brother so that it would race faster. The rest is history.
