The Dover Public Library is looking for creative Dover residents, Dover students, or Dover Public Library cardholders to enter our annual “Peeps Show” Contest this April.
Here’s how it works: Build a diorama using Peeps of any color or species in a standard size shoe box. The theme is anything literary; recreate a scene from your favorite book, play, or poem. The first 10 entries will receive a free plush Peep bunny or chick!
Those 17 or older are invited to compete in the Adult Division, while peeps, er, people 11- 16 may enter the Teen Division. Children ages 2 – 6 are invited to enter the Kids Division, and ages 7 – 10 may enter in the Youth Division. On the back of your standard size shoe box, please include your name, address, phone number, and title of your “Peeps Show”. All Peeps displays may be dropped off at the Dover Public Library beginning Monday, April 3 through Sunday, April 16.
The Peeps will be displayed in the library for all to enjoy. The winner of each division will receive a $25 Target gift card, courtesy of the Friends of the Library. Prizes will be awarded on Monday afternoon, April 17. Peeps should be picked up by 5pm on Saturday, April 22. All Peeps not picked up by the deadline will be discarded or eaten! For more information, call the Dover Public Library: 516-6050.
