Spring is finally here and a sure sign of it was Rockdale County 4-H Annual Egg Decorating contest. Each year students in grades 5-8 are invited to show off their creativity by entering their creations in the contest. The challenge is to hollow out a real egg without breaking it. Then students must choose which category they would like to enter and then create their own designs for their eggs based on the category. Submissions ranged from the entire cast of a Star Wars movie to kings and queens to an egg dressed as Sherlock Holmes. The 5th Grade winners of this year's contest are:
