2023 Egg Design Submission Call
Presented by America’s Egg Farmers
For over 40 years, the First Lady of the United States is presented with a beautifully decorated Commemorative Easter Egg by America’s egg farmers to celebrate Easter. To mark the 2022 Easter season, all 40 eggs presented to past First Ladies were displayed in a special exhibit.
During the 2023 Easter season, a new exhibit will feature decorated eggs from each U.S. state/territory designed by kids across the country. We are calling on parents with kids aged 5-18 to design an egg under the theme of “United States of Possibility” that represents their home U.S. state or territory.
The American Egg Board selection committee will review all submissions and select one egg design per state/territory. Selected winners will be notified by March 10, 2023, and selected egg designs will be created by egg artists across the country for the special exhibit.
United States of Possibility Theme - How to Get Your Child Started
Each U.S. state and territory is special. From the mountain ranges of Washington to farmlands of Iowa to beaches in Florida, our different locations combined make up a diverse and united country and give us a special sense of local and national pride. So how can our differences contribute to the future of the United States?
This is the United States of Possibility. What role will your individual state or territory play in the next 5, 10 or 15 years? What are some special aspects that you think will contribute to our country’s unity? We’re looking for egg designs that show how your state/territory might make a difference in the future of our country. Consider your home’s unique natural resources, scientific and technological inventions or cultural developments in the arts, sports or film. Then put it into an egg design…
Here are some questions to ask your child when thinking about their egg design:
- What is the thing I love most about my state or territory?
- What makes my state/territory unique?
- What makes my state’s/territory’s citizens different?
- And how can any of these things contribute to the unity of our country in the future?
