(Kent, Connecticut) – In light of the recent health crisis, we have revised the guidelines for our Peep-O-Rama Contest. We have designed a Peep-O-Rama Contest Gallery, on our website, to display received Dioramas so the public can vote. Participants are encouraged to create a Diorama of Peeps based on anything you can find at the Library (books, magazines, movies, games, etc.) There are two age categories: 14 years and under and 15 years and up. If you need inspiration or ideas for your Peep Diorama, we suggest doing a google/Pinterest image search using the phrase “Peeps Diorama.” Once you create your own Peep Diorama, email a photo or 2 of your submission with your entry form to firstname.lastname@example.org betfore April 8. Subject line: Peep Contest.
Email 1 or 2 photos of your submission with your entry form to email@example.com between now and April 8. Entry forms are available on the website. All ages are encouraged to participate (one entry per person). Dioramas should be based on anything you can find at the Library. Diorama sizes should be no larger than 2’ x 2’ (shoebox size is perfect). It must include one or more Peeps in the piece. You may use other materials for Peep costumes and to assemble your scene. Contents of your Diorama must be secure enough to survive transport to locations within the Library. Place your name and age on the entry form. Include the title on the entry form and email your entry form and 1 or 2 photos of your Peep to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will be announced Wednesday, April 22 after public voting has finished. Go to the Library’s website Tuesday, April 9 through Monday, April 20 to vote for the ‘Peeples’Choice Award. If the Library should reopen in the beginning of April, please resubmit your Diorama to the Library.
“We welcome the creative spirit and fun these Dioramas will bring to the Library & website this spring. We anticipate much laughter,” chuckles Samantha Saliter, Co-director of Children’s and Teen Services.
