Create a Peep diorama illustrating a scene from a book or a book title, and write a sentence describing your title and/or creation. Then bring your diorama to the library for our “Peep Up A Good Book” contest. You’ll be added to a display in the YA room, and library patrons will vote for their favorite. Each diorama will be entered into one of the following categories:
Children (up to and including age 12), Teen (age 13 to 17), Adult (age 18 and over), Sibling Team (children and teens only), and Family ( how many Peeple on your team?).
If you’re feeling a little cooped up, this can be a fun project with only a few rules to follow. All dioramas should be made using a shoebox, Peeps, and whatever materials you have around the house. Only put your first name on your display if you decide to sign it. Bring your masterpeepses to the library between Tuesday April 5th through Saturday, April 8th at noon. We’ll need your name/s, diorama title, category, and a contact phone number. Please keep all submissions appropriate for all ages, but feel free to channel your inner comedi-hen.
Voting will take place in person at the library between April 12 and April 20th, and the winner will be announced on April 21st, in person and on our Facebook page. Friends and family may flock to the library, but please only vote once. By submitting your work, you give us permission to post a photo of your diorama on our website and social media platforms. Although this contest is just for fun, winners will be entitled to crow about their achievements. Good (c)luck to everyone!
All peep dioramas must be removed from the library by April 30th.
