All you have to do is find some Peeps and an old shoebox. Construct a diorama with the Peeps. Make sure it has something to do with MIT. We don’t care if it’s an MIT banner in the background or brass rats on the Peeps’ fluffy heads. Just make sure we see a little MIT somewhere in the diorama.
1. Take two photos of your diorama.
3. Deadline is May 5th!
Don’t be all “I’m too old for this Peeps nonsense!” Have you seen what the Washington Post’s readers have done? Seriously, check this out:
Q: You said it was highly official. What’s so official about this?
A: We have official swag.
The First Place Prize will be a sparkling, hand-blown glass PEEPS® Chick with Swarovski crystal eyes. These are handmade at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, PA. The glass PEEPS® Chick will be packed in a Just Born Gift Box with PEEPS® and other Just Born candy brands.
The Second Place Prize Package will be a PEEPS® Tote Bag and baseball cap also packed in the Just Born Gift Box with PEEPS® and other Just Born candy brands.
Q: Can I cover my Peeps in LEDs and turn the shoebox into a quadruped robot?
A: Sure, as long as we see the letters M I T somewhere in there.
Q: How do I add to your Flickr pool?
A: Join Flickr. Then join the MIT Peeps 2010 group. Once you’re a member of the group, you’ll see a link that says “Add something.” For more questions about adding photos to groups, please visit Flickr’s FAQ page.
Important note: Please be aware that Peeps manufacturer Just Born has permission to post winning dioramas images on its PEEPS® site.
