(Kent, Connecticut) – This spring the word is Peeps. Beginning in March young and old alike are invited to participate in the KML’s Third Annual Peep-O-Rama Contest! 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 image search using the phrase “Peeps Diorama.”
Submit your Diorama and entry form to the circulation desk or Junior Room before 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 8 or email 1 or 2 photos of your submission with your entry form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entry forms are available at the Library and 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. If submitting your entry in person, place your name and age on the back of your Diorama. Include the title on the front of your Diorama (all other contact information should be on separate entry form). If submitting by email, send your entry form and 1 or 2 photos of your Diorama to email@example.com. Winners will be announced Thursday, April 22 after public voting has finished. Come to the Library Friday, April 9 through Tuesday, April 20 to vote for the ‘Peeples’Choice Award.
“One thing that’s cool about this contest for kids, is that it’s a great way to engage in looking at book illustrations of your child’s favorite books and making a replica with the peeps. Afterwards your child can engage in imaginary play with the Peep-o-ramas, too!” says Beth Adams, Co-Director of Children’s Services at the Library.
