GALVESTON — The Kitchen Chick and Artist Boat announced two companion events to this year’s Galveston Island Chicken Shack Strut.

At the Cracked Egg Cook Off, home cooks are invited to prepare dishes using yard eggs; no commercial eggs are permitted. Prizes will be awarded in each of the following categories — deviled eggs, sweets, egg salad, quiche and open.

The Chicken Kitsch 3D Art Contests celebrates the whimsy raising chickens can inspire. Artists are encouraged to create 3D art pieces using recycled materials, upcycled finds and paper crafts. Artists will receive cash prizes and have their work displayed for the following year.

The contests will be at 5 p.m. Sunday at Moody Mansion, 2618 Broadway, in Galveston.

Both events are open to all ages. Entries must be turned in between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday. There is a $10 registration fee per entry, which benefits the Artist Boat’s Project SIT.

For complete rules and registration information, call 409-497-2999.
