It’s time for The Eagle’s annual Peeps diorama contest. We’d like for you to enter. Here’s a definition of the terms:

Di-ora-ma: a scene, often in miniature, reproduced in three dimensions by placing objects, figures, etc., in front of or within a painted backdrop

Peeps: marshmallow treats especially apparent in stores around Easter time, in the form of chicks and bunnies and eggs and in a variety of colors and flavors, including “mystery flavor”

The Eagle’s Peeps diorama contest: using Peeps as the figures in a diorama, and putting your diorama into competition against other peeps’ Peeps dioramas

Your diorama can be a slice of pop culture or a scene from literature, history, current events — wherever your creativity takes you. Peeps must be its main star.

After you build it, take a photo of your creation and send it to The Eagle. This year we will have two categories: one for adults and one for kids (17 and under). A winner in each category — chosen by Eagle staff — will receive a $100 gift card. Top entries may appear in The Eagle and on our digital platforms. Entrants must be from the Wichita area.

The deets: E-mail high-resolution photos in “.jpg” format to acalovich@wichitaeagle.com with the subject line “Peeps” by 10 a.m. March 22. Please include your name, age, city, contact information, the title of your diorama and what inspired it.

Wichita Eagle employees and their immediate family members are not eligible.
