Marshmallow creativity: Trib's 2011 Peeps Show Contest
We celebrate our love of marshmallow Peeps with a contest to stretch your creative muscles.
The challenge: Create a diorama of a scene in which all the characters are played by Peeps marshmallow bodies.
Here's how to play along at home:
Choose a scene -- from history, a movie, advertising or pop culture. Build a diorama using a shoebox or similar-sized space. Create a setting, furnishing, a backdrop -- you are limited only by your imagination and glue gun.
Take a digital photo of your diorama and send a high-resolution, JPEG attachment via e-mail. Include your name, address, telephone number and the title of your masterpiece. Extra credit goes to those who know how to cleverly fling a good pun.
The grand-prize winner will receive a $100 gift card and an assortment of Peeps products, including a Peeps ball cap, tote bag, magnet and mug.
Two runners-up each will receive a $50 gift card.
To enter, e-mail your diorama photos to Peeps@tribweb.com .
Deadline is April 15. The winners will appear in the April 23 edition of this newspaper.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
