Egg-Cellent Egg Contest Flyer
The Egg-cellent Egg Contest is a fun competition for 4‐H members with a flock of chickens that are currently laying eggs. As part of the program, youth will submit up to 2 dozen eggs in different categories, which will be judged for uniformity, exterior and interior quality. Participants will also complete supplemental project components based on their age which is part of their final


The contest is $15 and is open to youth who have a flock of laying hens currently laying. Youth will be able to register using the link below and will have to send a check or money order to the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Hoke County Center (all of this is noted in the registration form). 
Participants who complete the project will receive a t-shirt. Cloverbuds will receive medals and older age categories will receive ribbons and award money if they get 1st-3rd place in one of the color/size categories. 
The whole contest is virtual and there is a Google site that houses all of the information you will need. A link to the Google site will be sent to participants once registration is over. There are two mandatory trainings the participants must attend which will be presented through Zoom.
Youth can submit up to 2 dozen eggs as long as they are in two different categories. There are three color categories (white, brown, blue/green) and multiple size categories.
