A total of 250 students from from five Arlington elementary schools — Ashlawn, Arlington Science Focus, Claremont, Nottingham and Tuckhoe — will receive highly sought-after tickets to the annual event.
Last year 550 tickets were given to Arlington elementary school students from eleven schools. The White House stipulated that tickets to the 2010 egg roll must be offered to students from schools not selected last year.
The theme for this year’s egg roll — “Ready, Set, Go!” — is intended to encourage kids to lead healthy and active lives. The egg roll is scheduled to take place on Monday, April 5.
