2014 Iowa State Fair Egg Decorating Contest

Attention all Iowa artists! The Iowa Egg Council will host its 17th annual Egg Decorating Contest during the 2014 Iowa State Fair.

Contest rules require participants to use a standard large-size chicken egg. From there the possibilities are endless, so put on your creative hats and get crafty! Design an egg that is your own personal style, or reflects something unique about Iowa. How about an egg that illustrates a hobby, or a passion? Of course, there is always the option of designing an egg that displays the beloved Iowa State Fair. Think outside of the box, with the intricate details. For example, beading, foiling, etching, painting and even carving! There are no limitations on how the eggs are decorated, so get decorating! To enter, visit for a downloadable entry form and a complete list of rules, or call 877-IOWAEGG for mailed contest information.

All Egg Decorating entries will be judged on Thursday, August 7 at the fair, starting at 12:00 PM in the Agriculture Building. First prize is $500, second prize is $400 and third prize is $300. After the fair these original works of art will make their way around the great state of Iowa in a traveling egg display. The hand-decorated eggs will be showcased at local libraries across the state.
