Union County Freeholder Christopher Hudak presents Linden High School Seniors Taylor Battle and Jade Rodrigues with resolutions congratulating them on the Easter egg design they created being featured at the 140th annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House in Washington, DC on April 2.
The U.S. Department of Education invited students throughout the U.S. to design an egg that reflects their home state. The designs had to be emblematic, including elements such as the state flower or state bird. Students from more than a dozen schools in New Jersey submitted their Easter egg designs to the state Department of Education for consideration, and the Linden High School’s design was unanimously selected.
Their Easter egg design chosen to represent New Jersey included includes many iconic New Jersey elements including our State Motto, “Liberty and Prosperity”; the Goldfinch, New Jersey’s State Bird; New Jersey’s State Fruit, the blueberry and even the Jersey Shore.
