The Egg Drop Contest displays the containers in KidZone throughout the Spring Fair.

Students must arrive by 2:30 pm on Sunday, April 21 to put the egg into their containers for the 3 p.m. event. Prizes for the three highest eggs dropped in each division will be awarded, which include Washington State Fair gate tickets and rides this September.
