White House Easter Egg Roll Social
On Monday, April 21, 2014, the First Family will host the 136th annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
For the next White House Social, we’re inviting our followers on Twitter and Instagram to join us on the South Lawn for live music, storytelling, and, of course, Easter egg rolling. In support of the First Lady’s Let's Move! initiative to help kids grow up healthy and have the opportunity to reach their full potential, the event will also feature sports and healthy cooking stations.
In order to apply, you must follow: @LetsMove or @FLOTUS on Twitter, or @MichelleObama on Instagram and have children ages 5 to 13. After you sign up for your chance to attend, help spread the word! Let your followers know that you submitted your entry for the #EasterEggRoll Social.
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. 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 White House Google+ Photowalk during the 2012 Spring Garden Tours, a Pinterest Holiday Social, a White House State of the Union Social, and a French Arrival Ceremony Social to name a few.
