CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- If you consider yourself a good egg and recognize Eggland's Best (EB) as the best eggs, you may have what it takes to become the first-ever Eggland's Best Chief Egg Officer ("CEO"). From May 13th to July 31st, EB is holding a call for entry where consumers can visit the Eggland's Best website to share why they are qualified to receive the honorary title of Chief Egg Officer and the $5,000 Grand Prize.
Candidates will be independently judged on the creativity of their entry, their affinity for Eggland's Best eggs, and their ability to represent the brand. Since Eggland's Best holds its eggs to the highest of standards, the judging process to find the first Chief Egg Officer will be no different. On September 9th, Eggland's Best will reveal the top dozen candidates on its website, and will egg consumers on to vote for their favorite candidate by September 30th.
The three candidates with the highest scores will reach the Finals, and the finalists will be presented with a last opportunity to demonstrate why they would make the best Chief Egg Officer. Between October 28th and November 17th, consumers can learn more about the three finalists before voting one last time for their favorite candidate.
"As Chief Executive Officer at Eggland's Best, I am proud that our eggs offer superior taste and nutrition," said Charles T. Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "I'm eager to find an individual whose enthusiasm for the brand and its nutritional benefits match all of ours at Eggland's Best."
In early December, Eggland's Best will reveal its inaugural Chief Egg Officer, who will be awarded the $5,000 Grand Prize. To ensure the new "CEO" is eating the best, Eggland's Best will provide the Grand Prize winner with a year's supply of Eggland's Best eggs, which are nutritionally superior to ordinary eggs. Also, the two runners-up will not go home empty handed, as they will be awarded $500 each and a six month supply of EB eggs.
