It’s nearly time for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, and the White House is inviting all elementary and middle school students in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia to submit poster designs for the 2011 event.
This year’s theme, Get Up and Go!, promotes health and wellness following the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative, a national campaign to combat childhood obesity. The First Lady will select the winning design, which will be used as part of the White House 2011 Easter Egg Roll program. The winning student artist will be invited to attend the event along with his or her class.
The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 4, 2011 at 11:59p.m. EST. Submissions should relate to this year’s theme, Get Up and Go!, and may not exceed 2 megabytes (high-quality scans measuring either 8.5”x11” at 600 dpi or 20×16” at 300 dpi must be available upon request). Please note, submissions may be made public during the selection process. To submit a poster, please visit the White House’s Easter Egg Roll Poster page.
