First Lady Michelle Obama has chosen the winning artwork from this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll Design Contest. Elementary and middle school students from nearly 30 states and three foreign countries submitted artwork related to this year’s theme, “#GimmeFive.” As part of the fifth anniversary of Let’s Move!, Mrs. Obama is challenging Americans across the country to #GimmeFive things they are doing to eat better, be more active, and lead a healthier life, and design contest submissions were asked to showcase the #GimmeFive theme through their artwork. Posters will be handed out as a prize to children who win the Easter Egg Roll and Egg Hunt, and programs will be distributed to all guests at the event.
