The Iowa Egg Council has announced a new contest for the state fair – an egg decorating contest. Any Iowan is welcome to enter for a chance to win $500. The contest has no limitations on how artists may decorate their eggs, painting, etching, beadwork or any other medium is welcome.
The entries will be judged on August 9th in the Agriculture Building at the state fairgrounds. After the fair the eggs will be part of a traveling art display featured at local libraries across the state.
