The maximum allowable weight of the container without the egg will be 1.5 pounds (680 grams).
Only one egg will be required per container.
You may use any type of material or filler for the egg, but it must meet the size and weight requirement.
The container must be designed so that it can be dropped in any orientation.
Participants must provide any materials required for sealing their containers after inserting the egg(s).
Raw, large, Grade A eggs should be used.
All containers will be opened by the parent after the drop; eggs must survive the fall with no visible cracks.

Have fun and Good Luck!
