Easter Egg Roll
136 Years of Fun
On Monday, April 21st, 2014, the First Family will host the 136th annual White House Easter Egg Roll. This year’s theme is “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape,” and more than 30,000 people will assemble on the South Lawn to join in the fun. The event will feature live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling. In addition to all of the fun, the day’s activities will encourage children to lead healthy, active lives in support of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative.
Easter Egg Roll Poster Contest
The White House invites all elementary and middle school students to submit poster designs for the 2014 Easter Egg Roll. Posters should relate to this year’s theme, “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape,” promoting the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative to help kids grow up healthy and have the opportunity to reach their full potential. The First Lady will select the winning design, which will be used as part of the White House 2014 Easter Egg Roll program.
The deadline for submissions is March 21, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. ET. Submissions should be uploaded here.
White House Keepsake Eggs
The 2014 souvenir eggs come in four bold colors - pink, orange, blue, green – and include the stamped signatures of the President and First Lady. A commemorative purple “Bo and Sunny” egg is included only in the 2014 5-pack Collector’s Egg Set.
The eggs first became part of the tradition in 1981, when President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan hosted a hunt for wooden eggs that bore the signatures of actors, actresses, famous politicians, and athletes.
