Formerly organized by the BA Chamber of Commerce, this popular pre-Rooster Days event is now organized by the Rotary Club of Broken Arrow.  The Hunt, which brings recognition to the businesses sponsoring the contest, has an avid following of Egg Seekers. The egg will be hidden in a publicly accessible location in Broken Arrow and will be packaged with instructions on how to contact the Rotary Club to authenticate the find.

How do you participate in the Rooster Egg Hunt?

Beginning May 1, this year’s Bonus Clue Sponsor, J. David Jewelry  will post the weekday clues first at 10 a.m., plus an exclusive Saturday clue available nowhere else. Other sponsorship levels will reveal the clues at 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. each weekday. The Rotary Club of Broken Arrow and the BA Chamber will post the weekday clues at noon on their social media and websites. These clues will gradually reveal the location of the hidden “Rooster Egg” until it is found.

Who will create the 2023 Rooster Egg?

This year’s Egg Artistry Sponsor is MetroMerch, and the Tulsa Glassblowing School, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization, has been commissioned to create a uniquely different Egg for this year. Just as Rotary commits to making a difference for good in the community, so does the Tulsa Glassblowing School with their mission to “Empower self-esteem and promote positive change in the lives of vulnerable youth and adults within the Tulsa community through participation in the unique creative processes of hot glass art.”

What is the prize for finding the Rooster Egg?

The Finder of the Rotary Rooster Egg will get to ride in the Rooster Day Parade on Saturday, May 20, and will receive the $1000 cash prize (plus a free gift from J. David Jeweler) afterwards on stage at the Rooster Days Festival in Central Park in Broken Arrow. A representative from the Museum Broken Arrow will be present on stage to receive the Rooster Egg as a donation to their collection of 28 wood, ceramic, and plastic Rooster Eggs, hand painted by various artists in the community.

Are sponsorships available for the Rooster Egg Hunt?

Sponsorship is open for additional categories, with sponsor’s donations being paid into the Broken Arrow Rotary Club Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. Net proceeds from the sponsors’ dollars will go right back into our community in the forms of grants and scholarships. For more information about the Rotary Club of Broken Arrow, the Rooster Egg Hunt, or how to become a Rooster Egg Hunt Sponsor, contact Club Secretary and Rooster Egg Hunt Chair, Becky Wood at 918-882-2980.
