Just Born Quality Confections and ArtsQuest are pleased to invite your school to participate in the fourth annual Lehigh Valley PEEPS® Scholastic Diorama Competition! The Diorama Competition is a central part of PEEPSFEST™ (December 30 and 31), a two- day celebration of the iconic PEEPS® chick, the # 1 seasonal marshmallow candy, produced right here in the Lehigh Valley.
The task is simple; decide on an idea and create a diorama using PEEPS® candy and other types of your favorite Just Born candy (MIKE AND IKE®, HOT TAMALES® or GOLDENBERG'S® PEANUT CHEWS® Candies). Your diorama may depict any subject, from silly to serious!
Four categories will be judged for prizes:
Each school may submit as many entries as they put together. However, only the first 30 registrants can be guarantee to have their dioramas displayed, in addition to the winners, during the event.
Dioramas will be on display at PBS39 Studios at SteelStacks during PEEPSFEST on Dec 30 and 31. During that time, guests of PEEPSFEST™ may vote for their favorite diorama for the PEEPle's Choice award. A panel of local judges will select the Critic's Choice in each of the four categories listed above. The top candidates from the Critic's Choice will be on special display December 30 and 31, with the grand prize winners of the Critic's Choice and PEEPle's Choice to be announced on December 30 at 3 pm. All the winning dioramas will be displayed in the Just Born exhibit at the Sigal Museum in Easton for an entire year. Plus the four winning entries will receive PEEPS® Easter Candy Packages with samples of Just Born candies.
A grand prize winner of the Critic's Choice will be selected from one of the four first place category winners. That winner will get to "drop" the illuminated New Year's Eve PEEPS® chick at approximately 5:15 PM on December 31st when thousands of visitors will gather to enjoy this family-friendly New Year's tradition and ensuing fireworks show.
Thank you to our sponsors for making PEEPSFEST™ possible!
