Children of National Guard members are not allowed to submit artwork with religious symbolism for the White House's 2024 "Celebrating National Guard Families" event. 

The Easter egg art contest is part of the White House's Easter traditions. This year, the Adjutants General of the National Guard requested on behalf of First Lady Jill Biden for the children of parents in the National Guard to submit artwork with the theme, "Celebrating our Military Families"

According to the rules, the Easter egg design “must not include any questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements.”

Other material that is prohibited from the designs include "material that promotes bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against any group or individual or promotes discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age."

The selected winners from the art contest will have their design painted by an artist on an egg and displayed at the White House, according to the New York Post.

Multiple members of Congress blasted the Biden White House for its decision. Democrats “are a Satanic cult,” Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., wrote on X.

The White House Easter Egg Roll will take place April 1 and is expected to have about 40,000 people in attendance.
