Participants blow out the material inside the egg and then decorate based on a specific fair theme. For 2013, the theme was “North Carolina’s Homecoming.” Eggs become property of the N.C. Egg Association and are used in displays to promote North Carolina eggs across the state.
If you would like to enter the 2014 N.C. State Fair Egg Art Competition, the premium book will be available online mid-July with information about this year’s contest. The “eggsciting” 2014 theme will be “The October Original.”
