Iowa State Fair Egg Decorating Contest

DES MOINES, IA (AP) - The Iowa Egg Council is again sponsoring its Iowa State Fair egg decorating contest.   

Entrants must use a standard large-size chicken egg, and the egg's design and decoration must reflect the artist's personal style or something unique about Iowa. Entrants can use any art medium.   

The award for first place is $500. There is a $400 prize for second place and a $300 prize for third place. The entered eggs will be displayed in Iowa libraries throughout the year after the contest.   

Entry forms and rules are available on the Iowa Egg Council's website, which you can access by clicking here

The eggs will be judged on Aug. 7 at the fair. After the fair, the eggs will be placed in a traveling egg display to be showcased at local libraries across the state.
