from every state in our country
Local artists create decorated eggs, which represent each state and the District of Columbia. The Easter Egg Collection continues the tradition that began in 1994 where each state sends a decorated egg to the White House for display. The collection is coordinated by the American Egg Board.

Here are the 2004-2006 eggs from Massachusetts.
