White House Easter Egg Roll 2019
On Monday, April 22, 2019, President Donald J. Trump and the First Lady will host the 2019 White House Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn and Ellipse! The Easter Egg Roll dates back to 1878 under the Administration of President Rutherford B. Hayes. President Donald J. Trump and the First Lady are honored to continue this timeless tradition.
Missouri students were invited to create a design representing our state. Four schools agreed to present the design challenge to their students. Participating schools were:
- Carrollton Area Career Center, Teacher: Janet Westhues
- Lesterville High School, Teacher: Megan Bond
- Waynesville Career Center, Teacher: Donna Groves
- Macon Area Career Center. Teacher: Bobbi Jo Linn
We were thrilled to see the wonderful designs the students conceived and then produced. Work produced at this level does not just happen. Each of designs is a result of a unique collaboration between teacher and student that is a combination of imagination, creativity and technical skill and knowledge.
DESE selected the design produced by Andrew and Jeremy from Waynesville Career Center as Missouri’s contribution to the festivities.
Started in 2004, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has invited public schools throughout Missouri to submit samples of their students' artwork. The art is displayed in the Department's main office in Jefferson City and in the room where the State Board of Education holds its regular monthly meetings. Artwork from each featured school is showcased for a month. The same artwork is now featured here. For privacy reasons, the full names of the student artists will not be published here.
Schools that will be featured in the Virtual Art Gallery are already scheduled for several months in advance. Please do not submit unsolicited artwork. For more information, contact:
