Notes from Judges:
There were many beautiful examples of egg decorating and many of the winners were in contention for the Overall Prize. For us, the winner didn't have to represent the most beautiful egg--instead, the overall effect of the egg was more important than sheer beauty or technique.
The double meaning of the egg had us rolling on the floor in laughter. The nice orange color and the use of wax resist were nice. More importantly, the fact that it was done by someone in the Junior category--who probably didn't even realize the double meaning of the egg--tipped the scales in his direction.
