Pittsville Elementary & Middle represents Maryland in 140th White House Easter Egg Roll

Every year, the White House has their annual Easter Egg Roll and now Wicomico County will be joining in on the fun for its 140th anniversary. 

Cut out eggs designed by schools from each state are placed on the way to the White House. And this year, Pittsville elementary and middle will be representing the state of Maryland.

There are some rules to the design process. The egg needs to be made in photoshop and they have to use particular color, while representing their state.

Multiple students came up with ideas but the school voted on just one design. The winners were 7th graders: Jonathan Lombardo and Aidan Williams. 

Now we can't show the final product but their art teacher, who helped them along the way, says it's a great representation of Maryland. 

"We're this little school in this little county on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Everybody kind of forgets about us. But we're the ones getting to represent our state for this monumental traditional event that's happening at the White House. My kids are excited, the entire school is excited. I am so proud of students, I couldn't be prouder for the work they've put into this," their art teacher Amy Gilland says. 

Each egg will have a plaque on it representing the school and county involved. 

The White House Easter Egg Roll will take place this Monday.
