White House Easter Egg Social: Register
Note: Registration for this event is now closed. For more information about the 2013 Easter Egg Roll check out WH.gov/EasterEggRoll.
On Monday April 1st, 2013, the First Family will host the 135th annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
This year’s theme is “Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!”. For the next White House Social, we’re inviting our followers on Twitter and Facebook to join us on the South Lawn for games, stories, the traditional egg roll, and of course to tweet! The day's activities -- which will include sports and cooking demonstrations -- will help educate families on smart ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise choices into their daily routines, key pillars of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative.
Sign up for your chance to join other @LetsMove followers for the White House Easter Egg Roll. In order to apply, you must follow @LetsMove on and you must have children ages five to thirteen. After you sign up for your chance to attend, spread the word! Let your followers know that you submitted your entry for the #WHSocial and tell us @LetsMove.
What is a White House Social?
The White House Social series are in-person meetings of people who engage with the White House through social media, including Twitter, Facebook and Google+ and Pinterest. Building off of the White House Tweetup series, we're inviting people that engage with us online on a range of social sites to participate in face-to-face meetings.
Past White House Social events have included a Twitter Town Hall with the President, a Tweetup Briefing with Press Secretary Jay Carney, a Let's Move! Tweetup for the First Lady's garden harvest, a Republic of Korea Arrival Ceremony Tweetup, a Holiday Open House Tweetup, a United Kingdom Arrival Ceremony Tweetup, a White House Google+ Photowalk during the 2012 Spring Garden Tours, a Pinterest Holiday Social and most recently a White House State of the Union Social.
