— It’s that time of year – lots of hootin' and hollerin' in Sampson County.

Without question, Spivey’s Corner’s annual contest is one of the most unusual and most popular competions around.

Saturday was the 40th annual National Hollerin’ Contest.

The teen trophy went to Kylie King from Florida. The ladies champ was Sheila Frye from Lillington, and Larry Jackson took top prize in the men’s bracket.

Wild screams were not the only fun. There was a Beach Music Concert and antique car show. All proceeds from the event go to the Spivey's Corner Volunteer Fire Department.
