  • 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.
